Synopsis:

In the tradition of fishing classics, A Naturalist Goes Fishing combines elements of the triumph between fisher and fish, humor and wit, and a passionate concern for the natural environment.

James McClintock takes us to some of the most breathtaking waters the world has to offer while capturing the drama and serendipity in the beloved sport of fishing. We follow him and his fishing buddies and professional guides, as he fishes off the marshy barrier islands of Louisiana, teeming with life but also ravaged by recent disasters like the Deepwater Horizon spill. We travel to the remote waters of New Zealand's Stewart Island, where the commercial fishing industry is fast disappearing; fish for gigantic Antarctic toothfish through a drilled ice hole at McMurdo Station; and scout for spotted bass on Alabama's Cahaba River, which has the highest diversity of fresh water fish in North America. As we take this global journey, we see how sea level rise, erosion, pollution, water acidification, and overfishing each cause damage.

This strikingly beautiful narrative is a must read for anglers and nature lovers alike.

Book Description St. Martin's Press. New York. 2015 1st edition. 8vo (160 x 242mm). Ppiv,268. B/w illustrations by Annabelle DeCamillis. Blue-green paper-covered boards, spine titled in gilt. Fine new copy in dust-wrapper. "In this far-flung account, James McClintock takes readers to some of the most breathtaking waters the world has to offer while capturing the drama and serendipity in the beloved sport of fishing. He and his fishing buddies and professional guides fish off the marshy barrier islands of Louisiana, teeming with life but also ravaged by recent disasters like the Deepwater Horizon spill. He travels to the remote waters of New Zealand's Stewart Island, where recreational and commercial hand-line fishing for blue cod is sustainable; fishes for gigantic Antarctic toothfish through a drilled ice hole at McMurdo Station; and scouts for spotted bass on Alabama's Cahaba River, which has the highest diversity of freshwater fish in North America. As he takes this global journey, he shows how sea-level rise, rapid warming, ocean acidification, erosion, pollution, and overfishing each threaten the fish and their habitats." "A veteran scientist and adventurer, Jim McClintock writes with passion and knowledge of his love of fishing within some of the most beautiful yet threatened waterways on Earth. He issues a stark reminder of what's at stake if we fail to replace fossil fuels with clean energy sources." (Robert Redford). "Like all the best nonfiction, A Naturalist Goes Fishing is at once intimate and global. James McClintock shares with readers his immense knowledge of - and deep love for - the world's increasingly threatened waters." (Elizabeth Kolbert). Chapters include:- Chandeleur Islands - Redfish; Manitoba - Lake trout; Cahaba River - Spotted bass; Gulf of Mexico - Yellowfin tuna; Antarctica - Toothfish; New Zealand - Rainbow trout; Bahamas - Bonefish; Costa Rica - Tarpon; France - Anchovies; Fishing for solutions.
