256 pp. . With a new introduction by Tosh Brown. After an astonishing career on Wall Street, Anthony Weston Dimock pioneered the modern sport of tarpon fishing. This legendary 1911 masterwork embodies all of the expeditionary drama and excitement you would expect pursuing a primitive fish in primitive waters while using primitive equipment. It is a delight--vintage Florida and the Everglades teeming with leaping, crashing, somersaulting fish--defining, in many ways, what a great fishing book should be.
