Synopsis

Normal0falsefalsefalseEN-USX-NONEX-NONEMicrosoftInternetExplorer4Inside knowledge from Florida's greats



"A tribute to some of the most outstanding fishing personalities of our time. If you have a passion for fishing Florida's waters, you will love this book."--Carlene Fredericka Brennen, champion angler and coeditor ofRandy Wayne White's Ultimate Tarpon Book



"The famous characters of Florida fishing live again in these pages. Kelly's is the best kind of writing about angling--the kind that you want to take your time to enjoy, that at the same time compels you to go out fishing immediately."--David Conway, managing editor, Florida Sportsman, and author of Fishing Key West and the Lower Keys



As one of the most lauded fishing destinations in the United States, boasting world records on varieties of fish, Florida has proven irresistible to the world's top anglers for more than 100 years.



Florida's Fishing Legends and Pioneers systematically chronicles the exploits of the most influential men and women of the sport throughout the state. Chosen by Doug Kelly for their contributions to the techniques, equipment, and strategies of fishing--and often radiating colorful personalities--these "hall of fame" legends and pioneers have helped preserve the Sunshine State as a top fishing destination that currently draws nearly five million anglers to its bountiful waters each year.



Interviews with such current angling luminaries as Lefty Kreh, Stu Apte, Mark Sosin, Joan Salvato Wulff, Roland Martin, Guy Harvey, Al Pflueger Jr., and a number of other renowned figures are found throughout the book. Organized chronologically, this intelligent and captivating book provides readers a greater and more accurate perspective on how recreational fishing in Florida evolved over more than a century. It also features rare historical information and photographs from past decades.



Florida's Fishing Legends and Pioneers is for everyone, from novice to master, who loves fishing!
