Book Description

To be recognized as a living legend a person would certainly have to do something very special. In any profession the legendary players use skill, brains, determination and what luck is handed to them to rise above all others in their field of endeavor. In very few instances could the road to greatness be more difficult to achieve than in the sport/business of big game fishing. Enthusiasts in this sport know all the big names, and the biggest of them have come together to create chapters of interest and excitement within this book. These are the men whose stories fill these pages: Ron Hamlin, Bart Miller, Peter Wright, Peter Bristow, Bobby Brown, Skip Smith, Bark Garnsey, Dennis “Brazakka” Wallace, Kevin Nakamru, Bouncer Smith, Billy Harrison, George Poveromo.
Fire on Board the Premier Cru, The Underwater Wireman’s Club, A Marlin to Remember, Madness at the Buoy, The Story of 1656; these are just a few of the titles in this book. A dozen world famous professional fishermen tell their stories of victory, defeat, gladness and sadness during their decades on the bridge chasing big game fish in every ocean in the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! Very well done! September 17, 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I am a big game fisherman (when I get the chance) and subscriber to "Marlin" and "Bluewater" magazines. So, I am well-read on the subject of big game fishing. Mr. Mansell's project--to have some of the world's top big game fishing captains each contribute a good story to this project--was a great idea. And Mr. Mansell executes well with this good book. These stories are the cream of the crop from the cream of the crop. I regularly read references to several of these captains (e.g.s, Peter Bristow and Bart Miller). It is great to read a short biography and each of them and stories they thought were worth contributing and sharing.

I was hooked from the first chapter and reluctantly put down the book when I had to. I plan to buy additional copies to give away as gifts.

This is a fun book to read because it is more about the fun and crazy people that enjoy fishing than the fish themselves.
