Great Collection of Stories

Perfect for anyone who enjoys Hemingway, fishing, and/or just reading about fishing. Some of the best pieces are from magazine articles he wrote about fishing in Europe and on the Gulf Stream. It is also nicely divided in to different sections, and it is not necessary to read from cover-to-cover.

Hemingway on Fishing

This is an excellent collection of Hemingway's writings about fishing, each taken from a larger work. It is a great introduction to Hemingway if your new to him, and a great refresher to him if you've been away for awhile. Read this book and you won't be disappointed, but please do each work the respect of reading the book it came from, and experience each work in it's original context.

Gathers Hemingway's writings about angling

Hemingway On Fishing gathers Hemingway's writings about angling, and while it fits into our 'literature' section quite neatly with its flowing prose and evocative descriptions, it's the fisherman who will appreciate Hemingway's passion for the sport. Nick Lyons edits the presentation and provide an introduction, Jack Hemingway the foreword in this classic treatise.

Papa at his finest

For Papa fishing was an act of love and worship. It was pure. It was simple. And the earth always moved. Enjoy this definitive collection of his most heartfelt writing. This is the core of Hemingway. It is a pathway to nobility and wisdom. A reader of these pieces can only shake his head in dismay at politicians and heroes in today's culture who even utter the word "character". If you need to talk about it, you don't understand it. Reading this book is a rite of passage. Thanks, Papa.
