With all the "ultimate" books hitting the shelves, it was only a matter of time before fishing got its due, and this one is definitely a keeper. Big and colorful, The Ultimate Fishing Book offers a first-rate selection of essays by the likes of Ernest Schwiebert, Bill Barich, and Ted Williams, and, perhaps even more impressive, an abundance of archival photos and color prints. Photos of such luminary anglers as Zane Grey, Ernest Hemingway, Roderick Haig-Brown, and several American presidents are mixed in with large, color reproductions of artwork by Winslow Homer, N.C. Wyeth, and Francis Golden. This is one fishing hole that enthusiasts can return to over and over.
