Fishing’s Greatest Misadventures presents twenty-six true stories which cover the spectrum from terrifying to comical to downright bizarre. In these pages everyday fishermen, pros, and journalists tell their stories of freak accidents, fishy attacks, pranks, idiotic decisions, eerie or unexplained incidents, and other jaw dropping, adrenalin-pumping calamities. The stories bring to life the strange possibilities that await us once we cast our lines into known and unknown waters.
Inside these pages you’ll meet:
A sport fisherman who gets taken on harrowing underwater ride by an angry white shark. An adventure angler whose boat is over turned by a 200 lb Amazon-river catfish. A group of ice fishermen who lose their cabin, gear and pride to a single pike. A teenager who sabotages a fish farm and frees 300,000 salmon. A charter boat operator who gets speared through the chest by a leaping marlin. From lakes to rivers to the ocean, this fishing book covers every form of angling, and all that can go wrong.
