More than 250 really extraordinary illustrations, many in full color, and many illustrating the earlier history of fishing that are remarkable. This is a brilliant interweaving of three fascinating stories: How North America's game fish have survived the impact of our expanding civilization in their environment; How anglers' techniques have altered and advanced as fish species and their changing habitats have become better understood; and how tackle has brought sportsmanship to its present state of perfection. A fascinating book--even for a non-fisherman!
