46 unforgettable fish tales as told by America's finest writers. As editor Lamar Underwood states in his introduction, The Greatest Fishing Stories Ever Told will take you fishing in two kinds of places: those like the ones you have never fished but would like to try, and those like the ones you have fished and enjoy remembering. Each of these stories, selected because of their "intrinsic literary worth," reinforces the unique personal connection fishing makes between man and nature. These stories will lead you from cold trout rivers to the dark estuaries where bigmouth bass lurk, from sandy beaches where the waves are slashed by blue-fish to the great blue waters of the Gulf Stream where marlin and tuna roam. You'll find all kinds of fishing here - and all kinds of fishermen. With contributions from: John Gierach Thomas McGuane Le Anne Schreiber John Graves A.J. McClane Odell Shepard Zane Grey Sigurd F.

Review quote

"Every once in a while, a book publisher comes up with a great concept for a series of books that deserve more than superficial recognition. Such a series is "The Greatest (fill in the blank) Stories Ever Told," anthologies that should win places on many bedside tables. On the long winter nights that lie ahead, such stories make great reading." --T"he Lexington County Chronicle"show more
