About this title


The author shares his experiences from a fifty-year involvement in fishing

From the Back Cover:

This robust, hilarious memoir spans fifty years of a fishing life. Cole takes us from his early days of bottom-fishing for blowfish in the Long Island Sound to fly casting for 150-pound tarpon out of Key West. Along the way, he gives us unforgettable portraits of people he fished with, glimpses of his own fascinating life, and such remarkable moments as the electric strike of a barracuda, the richness of an Alaskan river, and the savage grace of sharks marauding a school of massive tarpon in the Marquesas. (5 1/2 X 8 1/4, 224 pages)
