100 Years of Fishing

By: Voyageur Press

Gone fishin'." Those two words evoke countless memories: Dangling your feet off a dock on a lazy summer afternoon while fishing for sunnies with a cane pole. Dad or grandpa patiently showing you how to clean your catch. The romance of fly fishing; cool winds rippling deep pool waters. Bonding with friends in the close comfort of an ice house. In these days of dizzying "progress" run rampant in an uncertain world, those two words--"Gone fishin'"--can be a source of great comfort. No matter how frenzied our buttoned-down life gets, it's nice to know you can always leave the hustle of the world and simply go fishing.

From seas to streams, from rivers to lakes, anglers--young and old, male and female--have made this a popular pastime across the nation. We've reeled in the highest-caliber stories and artwork to celebrate the past 100 years of our fishing tradition. Whether you're a serious enthusiast or an angler who just enjoys being close to nature, you'll treasure this spectacular anthology. You'll enjoy stories and essays from such well-known authors as Zane Grey, Sigurd Olson, Ernest Hemingway, Robert Ruark, Patrick McManus, Norman Maclean, and Jimmy Carter, combined with historical and current photos of fishing. Stunning fishing collectibles, lure catalogs, ads, and other memorabilia round out this volume.

Arranged in chronological order, these stories cover virtually every style of fishing: fly, surf, deep sea, river, stream, lake, and ice fishing. Many types of fish are also covered, including trout, salmon, walleye, northern pike, muskie, bass, panfish, and saltwater fish. Put up a "Gone fishin'" sign and dive right in!
