Take Me Fishing

Fifty Great Fishing Stories

Edited by John Bryan / Foreword by Jimmy Carter / Introduction by Howell Raines

Here is great angling writing from the best writers in the business—from Tom McGuane to  John McPhee to Lefty Kreh. With proceeds going to FishAmerica, to help keep waters and fish healthy, and the Future Fisherman Foundation for education programs for children, these articles include Joan Wulff’s look at the stages in an angler’s lifetime; John McPhee’s passage on our country’s “Founding Fish”–the American Shad; Dave Barry's not-so-reverent take on fishing; Dave DiBenedetto on migrating stripers; Monte Burke on record bass; President Jimmy Carter on his youth; and Ted Williams on the environment. And there are many more, every one a joy to read.
