About this title


Dip into these pages and join the hero, a fisherman, as he sails off on a voyage of discovery. With wry humour, the author draws the reader into a special world: each of the 69 scenes in the tale is a tableau created out of oddball flea-market finds and staged within an antique fish tank. Arthur Tress took the tank with him on various locations all over America, from beaches to fields, and the reader travels with the intrepid hero as he learns all about the pitfalls of humanity, how to be a better fisherman and at last, how to live and fish in harmony with nature.

About the Author:

"Arthur Tress has been photographing for more than forty years, creating a diverse body of work that has been extensively shown and published and will be the subject of a traveling retrospective originating at the Corcoran Gallery in Washington D.C. in 2001. He has published fifteen books, many now cult classics, among them Tea Pot Opera (1988) and requiem for a Paperweight (1993)."
