Incredible--and True!--Fishing Stories, Paperback / softback Book

Incredible--and True!--Fishing Stories Paperback / softback

Description

What's almost as good as going fishing? Hearing, telling, and swapping great fish stories. Shaun Morey is a fisherman, a connoisseur of fish stories, and a journalist with a novelist's eye (and vice versa) in this collection of over 100 incredible (and true!) fishing stories. Here are Remarkable Catches--like the time Billy Sandifer caught a 1,000-pound tiger shark in the surf (he released it after nabbing a souvenir tooth).

Grueling Battles--like Bob Ploeger's record-breaking 37-hour fight with a Pacific salmon.

Hilarious Feats of Bravery, like the exploits of Matt Watson, who leapt out of a helicopter to land on the back of a marlin. And, in what can only be considered poetic justice, Shocking Acts of Fish Aggression, like Mitchell Lee Franklin's visit to the emergency room with a 5-pound catfish attached to his chest via an impaled dorsal fin.

Includes illustrations, photos, and links to videos on the author's website.
