Bloglines - OBITUARY: Ernest Schwiebert, a giant in the world ...
Bloglines user Lawboat (email@example.com) has sent this item to you.
OBITUARY: Ernest Schwiebert, a giant in the world of trout fishing. (NYTimes Log-in required.) An excerpt: His literary pièce de résistance, "Trout," traced the sport to the ancient Greeks and Chinese, then meandered through 1,745 pages covering pretty much every conceivable topic of interest to anglers, from the anatomy of Salmoniform fishes to the idiosyncratic philosophies of those compelled to pursue them. In reviewing the book, which weighs in at 7 pounds, 5 ounces and has a bibliography listing 999 sources, William Kaufmann wrote in The Washington Post in 1979, "Surely no fly fisherman in history can have fished more widely than Ernest Schwiebert has, and surely no one else has combined angling, artistic and writing talents to better advantage."
