Joe Brooks takes the reader with him as he fishes the finest places in the world. His life is a series of major trips, followed by sterling accounts of the situations and incidents encountered Greatest Fishing not only divulges the location of superlative spots and pertinent information relative to accommodations, but intermingled throughout is a wealth of applicable fishing know-how.
One wonderful excursion after another passes in review as opportunities are divulged to the ardent angler.
Beach, reef and ocean fishing is Bermuda produces endless variety including bonefish, mackerel, wahoo and many unexpected catches. Robert Louis Stevenson’s “Treasure Island”, the Isle of Pines, Cuba, provides the ultimate in fishing for the speed demon bonefish. The word “Panama” means “waters of many fishes” and Joes found that name fitted those fish-filled waters on the Atlantic side of the isthmus.
In the estimation of some anglers, Atlantic salmon provide the ultimate in angling thrills and finesse. One of the famous spots for Solar is the foot of the falls of the Humber River, Newfoundland. Brook trout fishing too, in this youngest Canadian province is spectacular, for when a brook trout goes to see and then returns to his native waters, he is fat, sassy and full of fight.
Great light tackle sport is to be had around the Bahamas. Fishing for snook in the awesome half-world of the vast Everglades swamps of Florida is like angling out of this world. The Florida Keys too, present great opportunities for the angler and they are within easy striking distance of the home of this restless angler.
