The Perfect Life of Fishermen

It’s exciting, yet it induces moods of contemplation. It’s fishing–perhaps the oldest and most popular sport and recreation among people of all ages and social standings. Here’s the book to start them dreaming . . . or prompt them to recall their stories of the big one that got away . . . or inspire them toward future challenges with rod and reel in the great outdoors. Author and photographer Pierre Affre looks back on the history of fishing and recalls exploits of some of the great fishermen of all time, from Isaac Walton to Teddy Roosevelt and Ernest Hemingway. He presents page after page of vivid color photos and illustrations that show lures, flies, rods, and reels. Next, his exciting color photos transport readers to fabled fishing areas–from trout streams in Scotland to the magnificent wilds of Quebec, the American northwest, and the Atlantic Ocean near the Florida Keys, where the big game fish challenge even the most experienced among fishermen. All fishermen are dreamers–and here are the things their dreams are made of. Photos and handsomely reproduced prints–many of unusual historic interest–on nearly every page. Most of the photographs are by the author.
