If it swims and can be landed with a rod, line, and hook, it’s featured here—as are locations all over the world, from the greatest rivers of Montana to Southern lakes to shores of all American coasts to far-off locations around the world. Anglers will find their favorites here, writers who have made a living writing on the joys of fishing and renowned names of literature who have shared their tales and wisdom. There are also little-known pieces by virtually unknown authors, and special discoveries. Fishermen nationwide will love this gigantic compendium—and it will make an ideal gift.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Who better to edit and introduce an enormous collection of fishing writing than one of America's most accomplished editors and publishers of angling books, Nick Lyons. Lyons has turned over every stone to include an incredible array of well-known fishing scribes like Izaak Walton, Thomas McGuane, James Prosek and John McPhee. And with the inclusion of literary heavyweights like Lord Byron, Gerard Manley Hopkins, Rudyard Kipling and Washington Irving, the selections run the gamut from nonfiction and fiction to poetry, and cover just about every fish, from the regal trout to the powerful tuna. While all the entries may not fit every angler's fancy, they certainly ensure that there is something for everyone. Despite the varying writing styles, the collection never feels disjointed because, to borrow a phrase from A River Runs Through Itby Norman Maclean, who's included, in the end all these divergent topics seem to "merge into one." That's because they share the virtues of anticipation, mystery and wonder that are inherent not only to great literature but to a sporting endeavor that focuses on knowing what is happening beneath the surface.

    WHAT A GREAT COLLECTION!

    This is a really comprehensive collection of fishing stories. It's fun for curling up with on a rainy afternoon and it also inspires me to go fishing now that spring is here!
