Inhaltsangabe: My favorite book on fishing a classic from one of my favorite writers.”
John Randolph, former editor, Fly Fisherman
Earthy and philosophical, practical yet speculative this book is a wonderful and enduring portrait of a fisherman’s temperament. Full of the late Harold F. Blaisdell’s infectious humanity and wisdom, The Philosophical Fisherman, long out of print, is a classic.
Blaisdell is always independent and original in his thinking. He refutes the widely held theory that game fish attack artificial lures because they believe them to be baitfish. He argues that fish do not fear leaders per se, but become alarmed only if the leader results in the unnatural movement of the bait or lure. He debunks the vaunted effectiveness of the artificial nymph, explores the best methods of wet and dry-fly fishing, and tests his theories against such gamefish as trout, smallmouth bass, landlocked salmon, walleyes, and northern pike. There is something here for everyone who fishes including a persuasive argument that the average angler anywhere in the country can invariably find superb fishing with in hour’s drive of his home.
Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range of books for fishermen. Our books for anglers include titles that focus on fly fishing, bait fishing, fly-casting, spin casting, deep sea fishing, and surf fishing. Our books offer both practical advice on tackle, techniques, knots, and more, as well as lyrical prose on fishing for bass, trout, salmon, crappie, baitfish, catfish, and more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to publishing books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked by other publishers and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.
About the Author:
Harold F. Blaisdell was one of the Northeast's most experienced freshwater anglers. His articles appeared in such sporting publications as "Field & Stream," "Sports Afield," "Outdoor Life," and "Fly Fisherman," and his fine book "Tricks That Take Fish" (Skyhorse, 2012) was hailed as one of the most practical, down-to-earth manuals ever written about fishing. Blaisdell died in 1985.
