A grueling 37-hour fight with a Pacific salmon. The maimed fisherman whose severed thumb turned up in the belly of a Mackinaw trout. From extraordinary marlin quests to the crazy bat who took an artificial fly, from hackle-raising tales of "fish catches man" to those nutty catfish noodlers who grope into the murkiest holes bare-handed, here are fishing's most unpredictable and spectacular tales. To get them, Shaun Morey traveled from Alaska to Australia, Mexico and the Caribbean, interviewed anglers, boat captains, guides and witnesses, dug up photographs and video tapes, and confirmed each story.

Yes, truth is stranger than fiction.

"This collection will both amuse and stretch your credulity . . . some of the origins might just surprise you." -- Bob Stearns, [Field & Stream]

"The things that happen to fishermen in this book are unbelievable." -- Rolla Williams, San Diego Union-Tribune

From the Publisher:
From a grueling 37-hour fight with a Pacific salmon to the maimed fisherman whose severed thumb turned up in the belly of a Mackinaw trout. From extraordinary marlin quests to hair-raising tales of "fish catches man," here are fishing's 80 most unpredictable and spectacular tales. To get them, Shaun Morey-a fanatical fisherman and inveterate story collector-traveled from Alaska to Australia, Mexico, and the Caribbean to interview anglers, boat captains, guides and witnesses; to dig up photographs, and to confirm each tale. You'll read about Captain Jimmy Lewis who, in a moment of sheer bravado (or insanity), speared by hand-and landed-a 1,600-pound hammerhead shark. Or Bob Smith, fulfilling his twenty-year quest to catch all forty species of North America's wild trout on the bitter cold morning after his eighty-first birthday. Or the 800-pound blue marlin that made a final lunge-ripping up the deck and dragging a chair, with Paul Clause strapped in it, to the bottom of the ocean. (Paul survived; so did the marlin.) Truth is stranger than fiction.
