The Best Fishing Stories Ever Told: 50+ Classic Tales, Edited by Nick Lyons

The Best Fishing Stories Ever Told celebrates the art of hunting fish at many angles. Tales of baiting, angling, and the watery outdoors are recounted by great writers such as Rudyard Kipling, Guy de Maupassant, and Lord Byron. In scenic rivers, lakes, and seas, praise the trout, snap up that salmon, angle, aim, and sing the fisherman’s song. This superbly presented collection of fishing stories will set the reader sailing on the Loch or along the Thames and tracking down sharks or carp in many exciting waterways.

You will find memories, essays, true stories, and fishing accounts more or less exaggerated or imagined. Their authors and their editor, Nick Lyons, all share a communicable passion for a great day out fishing - a passion only surpassed by the love of telling the tale with or without the catch to show.

With work by more than fifty of the world’s most eminent authors and fishermen, including John McPhee, Howell Raines, Ted Leeson, Jimmy Carter, Lefty Kreh, Dave Barry,
Norman Maclean, Rudyard Kipling, and many more.
