Roger Caras' Treasury of Great Fishing Stories
Gathered by best-selling nature writer Roger Caras, these classic and little-known works of literature celebrate fishing as art, craft, and quasi-religious pursuit. From the early morning solitude of a lone fly-fisherman in a trout stream to the heart-pounding sea battle for a seven-hundred-pound tuna, these tales encompass the wide range of locales and experiences that make up the fisherman's world. Salmon, swordfish, the hammerhead shark, a terrifying green moray, catfish, the tough little jack, and everywhere - from ancient British streams to secluded American rivers - the trout. They are all here, pursued, observed, revered and remembered in a distinguished array of literary styles.
