Famed game fishing pioneer Kip Farrington’s 1942 classic book was re-published by the highly-respected Derrydale Press in 2000 as part of its limited-edition Blue Water Classics series. This mint-condition copy is bound in blue leather with a gilt edge.
Farrington explores the Pacific, reporting on the game fishing, the tackle, and the pioneer anglers in Australia and New Zealand, as well as the Hawaiian Islands, Bali, Chile, Peru, Ecuador, Panama, Mexico, plus Catalina, California, Washington and British Columbia in the US. This special book is filled with many fabulous photographs of early big game fishing for black marlin, broadbill swordfish, yellowfin tuna, mako sharks, roosterfish, wahoo and many other species. 290 pages, including index.
This book is a must-have for your game fishing library – whether for the excitement of pioneering, the significant history, the photos, or simply for romanticising about this Golden Age of our sport. It also makes a perfect present, or tournament trophy.
