Overview

From a grueling 37-hour fight with a Pacific salmon to the maimed fisherman whose severed thumb turned up in the belly of a Mackinaw trout. From extraordinary marlin quests to hair-raising tales of "fish catches man," here are fishing's 80 most unpredictable and spectacular tales. To get them, Shaun Morey-a fanatical fisherman and inveterate story collector-traveled from Alaska to Australia, Mexico, and the Caribbean to interview anglers, boat captains, guides and witnesses; to dig up photographs, and to confirm each tale. You'll read about Captain Jimmy Lewis who, in a moment of sheer bravado (or insanity), speared by hand-and landed-a 1,600-pound hammerhead shark. Or Bob Smith, fulfilling his twenty-year quest to catch all forty species of North America's wild trout on the bitter cold morning after his eighty-first birthday. Or the 800-pound blue marlin that made a final lunge-ripping up the deck and dragging a chair, with Paul Clause strapped in it, to the bottom of the ocean. (Paul survived; so did the marlin.) Truth is stranger than fiction.

Some 62 million people fish in America. For these people, the next best thing to fishing is swapping fish tales. Incredible Fishing Stories offers over 80 truly incredible fishing stories--world records, strange happenings, and the revenge of the fish. Photos and illustrations throughout.

    Sandfeather

    Sandfeather pads in with seven carp and two bullheads. Honeyflower had one mouse four voles and two squirrels. Climbstream had four mice three giant rats and two voles. Sandfeather nods approvingly and leads the others to camp.
