Although people have been fishing since the dawn of time, photography has helped to document the valor, poise, and—occasionally—absurdity of those who go fishing. The 144 historic photos here include images of such fishermen as Ernest Hemingway, Johnny Cash, Enrico Caruso, Ted Williams, and even the Beatles, along with an often-hilarious trove of snapshots of Edwardian dowagers, tiny babies, and sunburned sportsmen, preparing tackle boxes, casting their lures, and displaying the catch of the day. Here too are a few staged pictures of "the big one that got away," plus quotations on this most gratifying (or frustrating) pastime.
