This is the story of America’s beloved saltwater sport fish and the millions of anglers who pursue them. Drawing on three decades of notebooks full of observations and interviews, as well as hundreds of hours spent pursuing the “striper,” “linesider,” or “rockfish”—as they are known regionally—through each season, from spring through late fall. The essays and photographs illuminate the fish through these seasons and highlight their pursuit from the surf and boats, day and night. Accompanying essays, or fish tales, are told in Sisson’s unmistakably authentic voice and share stories of history, the seasons, and friendships. These tales transport us from the Gulf of Maine to Albemarle Sound in North Carolina, and from the Chesapeake Bay to Montauk, the Jersey Shore, Martha’s Vineyard, and Cape Cod. Full Color, 7.75x10 inches, 256 pgs.
