Inhaltsangabe: This stirring historical account chronicles the evolution of big-game fishing and the legendary International Game Fish Association (IGFA), which was founded in 1939 and continues to be the leading authority on sport fishing, as well as the future of the sport. Hundreds of previously unpublished photos illustrate the hotspots visited by early big-game anglers and the types of tackle they used while a basic history of angling is provided for the recreational angler. Biographies of key IGFA personnel—such as Bill Carpenter and Elwood Harry—and their contributions to the group are examined as is the organization’s role during World War II. No other fishing association has been as influential in the sector of the sporting world as the IGFA and their rules and records continue to set the standard around the world.
About the Author: Mike Rivkin is a veteran offshore angler and a member of Catalina Island's venerable Tuna Club. He lives in La Jolla, California.
