About this title


This is the remarkable story of the men, past and present, who discovered the fishing grounds and developed, through the trial and error, the techniques and equipment for catching and landing the big ones. This is a revised, expanded, and updated 25th anniversary edition.

It begins with the early pioneers of the sport: Henry William Herbert and "Tuna" George Farnsworth, and proceeds to colorful portraits of some of the grand old men of the sea, such as Charles Frederick Holder, Zane Grey, Ernest Hemingway, and Philip Wylie.

This new edition also features expanded saltwater flyfishing information in the chapter on Lefty Kreh. And it includes a new chapter on Walter Fondren's founding of the Coastal Conservation Association, the most influential and powerful sportfishing organization/lobby in the United States.

We may never again see the equal of the great fish caught by the anglers in this book. Gone are the great schools of giant bluefin tuna, and the huge broadbill swordfish. But the stories live on in the pages and photographs of this classic book.

About the Author:

A skilled angler and one of America's best known conservationists, George Reiger is the author of seventeen books, including the Pulitzer Prize finalist Wanderers on My Native Shore. He is the conservation editor of both Field and Stream and Saltwater Sportsman magazines.

Store Description

I operated a used bookstore in Davis, California, from 1985-1992 (Berry's Books), then moved to Mendocino, and have been selling used books on the internet since 1998. Middletown CA is my new home, and the air here is ideal for book preservation (low humidity). I am a jack of all trades, master of none, which lends itself well to the book trade. I currently have 19,000 books online in 160 different subject categories. The inventory is regularly updated online, so if you see it listed, there is a 99+% chance that I can mail it by the next business day.
