Classic Fishing Stories: Twenty Timeless Angling Tales Cover Image
By Nick Lyons (Editor)
Special Order


Classic writing remains "classic" only insofar as people want to read it. Angling historians may study the evolution of tackle or tying techniques, or perhaps the methods of fishing used hundreds of years ago, but the wonderful old stories about fishing are read and reread only because they give pleasure today; because they give us insights into why we fish and the nature of our passion; and because they are well written. This book offers twenty of the best classic fishing stories that have stood the severe, inescapable test of time. John Buchan, Lewis Carroll, Rudyard Kipling, Washington Irving, Roland Pertwee, Andrew Lang, Henry Van Dyke, R. D. Blackmore, Anton Chekhov, John Taintor Foote, G. E. M. Skues, and all the others in this fine collection have given pleasure for generations . . . and will give great pleasure to modern anglers, too.
