The catching of fish, said the Sage of Chocoloskee, is but an incident in fishing. He told the frozen truth. To be out in the open where fish are; to watch them at their great business of living; to see them in the water or out of the water; to fish for them, and even to hook them and have them get away-all this is wonderfully worthwhile-wonderfully better worthwhile than merely to catch and keep the stiffening fading body of one of the most beautiful forms of life.
Gifford Pinchot, twice governor of Pennsylvania and America’s premier fisherman presents twenty-three personal experiences in story form.
From the mountain streams of Pennsylvania to the scented isles of the South Seas, the author weaves a magic web of angling enchantment.
Just Fishing Talk is ideal armchair entertainment for every man or woman who loves the outdoors.
If you are one of those who revel in the tang of salt spray or the fragrance of mountain pin and fern—if you can think of no thrill greater than the swift surge of a hooked fish—you will treasure this book.
