These 25 unforgettable fishing stories boast fast action, dramatic plot twists, and intriguing characters from the sinister to the hilarious. Spanning the entire 20th century, they offer a bounty of fishing adventures: the solitary sportsman casting in a fast trout stream; expensive ocean charters seeking grouper; a couple of kids with bamboo poles and high hopes for the big one. The world-class authors include today's Stephen King, Bob Shacochis, Thomas McGuane, and E. Annie Proulx; timeless storytellers such as Guy de Maupassant and the Brothers Grimm; and early- and mid-century favorites like Stephen Vincent Benét, Philip Wylie, Henry Van Dyke, and others. Sports enthusiasts and story-lovers alike will find this collection irresistible.
