A North American fishing handbook from one of the great masters of the sport.
First published in 1903, Bass, Pike, Perch, and Others remains a reliable resource for fishing enthusiasts in North America. As part of the American Sportman’s Library, this handbook was set apart as an important text on sporting subjects from an American perspective, provided here by Dr. James A. Henshall, who spent decades studying fish and fishing. Henshall, called both the “Apostle of the Black Bass” and the “Dean of American Anglers,” is one of the most important conservationists and fish culturists in our nation’s history, best known for originating bass fishing. Here, Henshall provides information on all the game fish families of the United States east of the Rocky Mountains, including:

• Sunfish
• Bass
• Perch
• Grayling
• Drum
• Minnow
• Catfish
• Grouper
• Cavalla
• Grunt

This guide, complete with the original black-and-white illustrations and personal anecdotes from Henshall, is a must-have classic for any serious angler.
