Introduction by Randy Wayne White with paitings by John Rice. Perhaps the grandest of the rare old tarpon books, this is the author's account of a year spent tarpon fishing at Tampico and Boca Grande in 1905. A British Army captain related to Sir Winston, Spencer-Churchill provides an acerbic, at times fussy, though very British and dryly humorous view of the sport of tarpon fishing. A thoroughly delightful book which includes a section of spectacular early photographs of tarpon.
Randy Wayne White is a former fishing guide, the author of the acclaimed Doc Ford series of mystery novels, Batfishing in the Rainforest, and is a contributing editor of Outside Magazine.
