A Collection of Stories about Fish, Fishermen, and Favorite Fishing Spots with Action on Every Page

The incomparable Philip Wylie is here writing about one of the things he likes bestfishing. Anyone who has ever wet a line, and perhaps those few benighted souls who haven’t, will be thrilled to read these true tales about the big ones, hooked (and sometimes lost) in tropic waters.

In Denizens of the Deep, which was originally published in 1947, there are wonderful chapters on marlin, the admirable” barracuda, and the shark, whom Wylie calls that misunderstood fish.” The bursting pride when you catch that first big one is recaptured with fine nostalgia in the essay What Makes a Great Day’s Fishing?” and the tragedy of the clean getaway in Listen to This Tale of Woe.”

Serious fishermen with an interest in the pastime’s history will also find much valuable information in the chapter on the International Game Fish Association.

Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range of books for fishermen. Our books for anglers include titles that focus on fly fishing, bait fishing, fly-casting, spin casting, deep sea fishing, and surf fishing. Our books offer both practical advice on tackle, techniques, knots, and more, as well as lyrical prose on fishing for bass, trout, salmon, crappie, baitfish, catfish, and more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to publishing books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked by other publishers and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.
