Product Overview

"A fishing challenge, a first, a Hall of Fame" are the baits used to lure Bob "Bubba" Rich out onto the waters of south Florida and the Bahamas. If he can catch ten of the most sought-after gamefish in this mecca for saltwater sports fishing - the sailfish, barracuda, bonefish, permit, black bass, wahoo, tarpon, dolphinfish, marlin, and snook - he will become the first angler inducted into the twenty-five-year-old Metropolitan South Florida Fishing Tournament Hall of Fame. Fish Fights is a rollicking narrative of Rich's quest to achieve this goal in just one year, although the award was set up to honor lifetime achievement. With the Florida Keys, the Everglades, and the islands of the Bahamas as his backdrop, Rich chronicles his dogged pursuit of these elusive fish. Yet, this is no mere fishing tale. It also recounts the history of conservation and the development of a catch-and-release ethic by saltwater anglers. Most important, though, it is a rich adventure with an intriguing cast of characters, among them the intrepid Rich himself, the taciturn Rusty, his conch fishing guide, and, of course, the slippery fish with which he tangles. (6 1/4 x 9 1/4, 349 pages, color photos, b&w photos, illustrations)
