Editorial Reviews

Ted Williams today is an expert fisherman, perhaps the most expert of our time, the way Zane Grey was considered to be in his. The unique drive that made him desire to be, in his own words, "the greatest baseball hitter that ever lived" turned out to be transmutable: he wouldn't mind at all being called "the greatest fisherman that ever lived." His expertise is vast. He has fished black marlin in New Zealand and tiger fish on the Zambezi, and he has won international tournaments catching near-record sailfish and tarpon. No kind of tackle, no kind of river or body of water has escaped his attention. The weight of his experience has led him, now, to certain hard-held beliefs on the subject. Of all the fish that swim, Williams believes there are three worthy of a sportsman's consistent attention: the tarpon, the bonefish, and the Atlantic salmon. He has now caught (and released for the most part more than 1,000 of each. He considers it the triple crown of fishing. The first two he fishes for near his hometown in Islamorada, in the Florida Keys. For Atlantic salmon, he spends the greater part of every summer and fall, from June to the end of October, at his camp on the Miramichi River in New Brunswick. Every sportsman will delight in reading this unique, anecdote-filled volume in which Sports Illustrated staff writer John Underwood first tells about the actual experience of fishing each of "the Big Three" with Ted Williams. And then no angler will want to be without the secret technique that Williams himself reveals for catching these three elusive game fish - a compendium of knowledge that is applicable to any fish, in any water. --- from book's dustjacket
