Amazing But True Fishing Stories

by Allan Zullo Bruce Nash

A school of fish raining from the sky . . . anglers catching eighty-three sailfish in one day-fish tales? No, Amazing but True Fishing Stories. In the tradition of Nash and Zullo's Amazing but True Golf Facts and The Sports Hall of Shame book series comes a compendium of true tales, angling antics, and fish facts. This is a book that once again demonstrates how truth can be stranger than fiction. Consider: the Frenchman who caught 590 fish in one hour with a single pole; the angler who used his rod and reel to hook and save a drowning woman; the man who lost his thumb in a boating accident-and found it seven months later, in the belly of a trout! These and many more terrific tales, crazy catches, and daring duels can be found in Amazing but True Fishing Stories.
