This is the large format De Luxe Edition with colour illustrations by Lynn Bogue Hunt. S. Kip Farrington Jr., who gave up his career as a Wall Street stockbroker to pursue his passion for sports fishing and writing about fishing and other subjects. Mr. Farrington set numerous deep-sea fishing records, wrote 21 books, and served as saltwater editor of Field & Stream magazine from 1937 to 1972. Farrington and Ernest Hemingway, who wrote the introduction for this book, were both great boosters for big-game fishing in the Bahamas and Cuba, where they fished frequently during the 1930s and 1940s. Hemingway gives us an insightful glimpse at the psychology of some sports fishermen in the introduction: "Anglers have a way of romanticizing their battles with fish and of forgetting that the fish has a hook in his mouth, his gullet, or his belly and that his gameness is really an extreme of panic in which he runs, leaps, and pulls to get away until he dies. It would seem to be enough advantage to the angler that the fish has the hook in his mouth rather than the angler."
