Description - Incredible--and True!--Fishing Stories by Workman Publishing

Over 33 million people fish in this country. They went on over 455 million fishing trips and spent more than $41 billion on fishing expenses. And 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) whose first collection, "Incredible Fishing Stories," has 471,000 copies in print. In the years since that book s publication, Morey has continued to reel in jaw-dropping tales, and the result is a new collection of over 100 "even more incredible" 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."
