Zane Grey, known and loved primarily for his Western novels, was an avid fisherman. When his writing started paying off, he managed to spend as many as 300 days a year enjoying the sport. And while he is remembered for his record-breaking catches, such as the 464-pound marlin caught off the coast of Tahiti, Zane Grey also enjoyed freshwater fishing for bass, trout, steelhead, and salmon.
In Tales of Freshwater Fishing, Grey recounts his expeditions on the Delaware River, off the West Coast of the United States, and in British Columbia.

fantastic fishing stories beautifully written
Such a great group of fishing stories. Incredible adventures of a time that is gone, when big steelhead runs were the standard in Oregon and beyond. It's fun to hear the author tell his own story and describe not only his highs and lows as a fisherman but also laugh along with him and his friends as they catch and lose so many amazing fish. The chapters based around his trips on the Rogue are epic and laugh out loud humor as he watches his boys learn to fish and paddle the great rapids they meet. Adventures on wild rivers that offered so much danger and discovery. I love Zane Grey's westerns but this was by far my favorite of all his books so far! Inspires me to take a trip with my son to teach him the ways and the adventures of a fisherman.

classic by Zane grey
I found it fascinating to listen to tales of fishing areas that have long since been settled on rivers that have long since been dammed. it can be a bit wordy at times as is the case with literature from a hundred years ago overall good at least for its historical value.
