Summary

Summary

Zane Grey fished up to three hundred days of the year. But, with all that time on the water, there was nothing more exciting or more compelling than the really big fish―the giants of the sea.

In Zane Grey’s day, blue fin tuna were pursued with harpoons and sometimes are even today. There is the story of a swordfish that was hooked at 10:30 in the morning and played until 11:30 that night―only to …!

Tales of Swordfish and Tuna will dazzle and thrill any fishing heart.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[Tales of Swordfish Fishing is], even today, among the finest works on big-game fishing.” Independent (London)
“Well worth reading for pleasure and instruction. Just as he invented the Western, Grey also pioneered sporting fishing for the large ocean species of game fish.” Chicago Tribune

Author Bio: Zane Grey

Zane Grey® (1872–1939), born in Ohio, was practicing dentistry in New York when he and his wife published his first novel. Grey presented the West as a moral battleground in which his characters are destroyed because of their inability to change or are redeemed through a final confrontation with their past. The man whose name is synonymous with Westerns made his first trip west in 1907 at age thirty-five. More than 130 films have been based on his work.
