Artist and ardent angler Bill Bishop tackles all aspects of tarpon fishing--from building leaders to bringing them in quickly. Each chapter explores the core aspects of tarpon fishing in detail, including step-by-step instructions for tying IGFA leaders, the nuances of finding, casting to, hooking, and fighting giant tarpon, and insights and tips for running the boat, seeing fish, and reading the fish's behavior. In addition to the technical aspects, Bishop's stories and humor take a look at the personal side of fishing, reminding us that despite the sometimes-serious undertaking of battling a 150-pound tarpon, fishing is still supposed to be fun.
With more than 140 detailed pen-and-ink illustrations and photos by Mark Hatter, this book will help anyone who wants to hook, and land, more silver kings.
Years of experience and knowledge crammed into a concise book with nice B&W line drawings, this volume is a trophy.

Flies, leaders, anchors, and other equipment are discussed with enough detail and clarity that you can't help but start getting the itch to immediately put to sue what you've just read.

Bishop has done this. Take advantage of this happy shortcut to the wild heart of tarpon fishing. —Flip Pallot
