Editorial Reviews


“Fishermen who strive for world angling records are of a strange and singular breed: part athlete, part artist, part predator, part mad scientist—and totally obsessed. In this entertaining and exciting book, author Andrew Vietze tells the stories of over a dozen modern-day Ahabs for whom landing the largest specimen of a particular species—everything from piranhas to largemouth bass to hammerhead sharks—looms larger than Mount Everest or the Nobel Prize.”

—Paul Guernsey, author of Beyond Catch & Release: Exploring the Future of Fly Fishing, and former editor of Fly Rod & Reel
