Here are sixty pieces, averaging about six pages each, from the finest fishing writers from Izaak Walton through the present. Hemingway, T.H. White, Zane Gray, de Maupassant, and Charles Dodgson are among the more familiar to the nonfishing audience, but the selections represent a veritable who's who of angling authors. Of course one could quibble: the poetry is insubstantial, and the most space is given to Ted Williams and Roy Blount, Jr. (16 pages each). Those objections notwithstanding, this is an excellent library acquisition. It should be appreciated by literate fishers, and the works from which the selections are taken provide a good library guide for building a fishing literature collection. David J. Panciera, Westerly P.L., R.I.
