Yes, this book certainly IS a look into days gone by. It's a fascinating journey into an old world and lifestyle that is now impossible due to the crush of humanity along the coasts of Florida. Two brothers paddling their canoe around southwest Florida amongst the fish and birds and raccoons and scattered humans. A.W.'s entertaining prose is well complimented by his brother Julian's photographs -- mostly just canoe and fish shots, but a few great works of art. IMHO, a must read for anyone who's had the good fortune to wander through the natural world in the Sanibel/ Captiva/ Cayo Costa/ Boca Grande area.

More of look into days gone by than anything else. With that said, not all prior happenings are as we wish they could've been. Harpooning a tarpon? come on? Not a bad read, but this edition does not give the reader a quality view of the many drawings that were in the original print.

Apparently, A.W. Dimock was an interesting guy. He made and lost several fortunes along the way-- on Wall street and specualting gold. Only a man with this kind of swagger could claim to be the first to catch a tarpon on rod and reel. In 1882?? Who knows?

A fabulous book about the greatest gamefish ever - wonderful photography. If you are a tarpon angler you'll love this book.
