Overview

Herbert Hoover had a lifelong passion for fishing, beginning in his boyhood. The sport gave relief from first the pressures of business and civil service and later the presidency. He fished throughout the United States, in California, Oregon, Key West, and North Carolina; founded the Cave Man Camp, a spot for powerful Republicans at Bohemian Grove, north of San Francisco; and had a hideaway near the Upper Rapidan River in Virginia, where he could fish for trout as an escape from the stress of Washington, D.C. In the last year of his life, he wrote a small book about fishing. Includes never-before-published photos and an interview by Senator Hatfield, who spent time at Bohemian Grove.

Author Biography: Hal Elliott Wert has spent years researching Herbert Hoover, Franklin Roosevelt, and Harry Truman. He holds a Ph.D. from the University of Kansas and currently teaches at the Kansas City Art Institute.
