Book Description Meadow Run Press. Far Hills, New Jersey. 2006 1st edition. Large 4to. Ppxvii,292,i. Colour & b/w photographs throughout, maps. Handsome half-leather gilt, marbled end-papers. Corner of slipcase bumped otherwise a fine unread copy. After many years of tireless research, and intensive investigation by a smal army of archivists, assistants and researchers, the well-known angler and author, Hoagy B. Carmichael has produced what should become the definitive history of Atlantic salmon fishing in North America. While focusing on the Grand Cascapedia River, the themes and indeed many of the participants are universally recognized. Hoagy began to fish the Grand Cascapedia regularly every year during the mid-1980s. He quickly became immersed in the lore of the camps and lodges and the personalities and has spent these subsequent decades examining the history of the river and the history of the sport. What we have with this book is a remarkable, panoramic, almost epic story of the development of the sport of fly fishingfor Atlantic salmon. As Charles B. Wood points out in his introduction, primary sources were tracked down and utilized for the bulk of material presented here. These include previously unseen family archives, personal letters and journals, private photographs and paintings, including some unseen Pleisners, and countless interviews with anglers and their descendents. This then becomes a very rich source of new information and delightful visual images - of the fish, of the anglers, and of the elaborate and not so elaborate camps and lodges that are inextricable strands of the fabric of the great sport of fly fishing. One of 2200 copies. Volume Two was published in June 2012, our stock number 28821. Seller Inventory # 26074
