A contributor to Audobon and Fly Rod and Reel, Ted Williams is an avid fisherman as well as a conservationist, and he brings both passions together in an important collection of essays. Dennis Holland intones Williams' work with great force, lending a suspenseful air when Williams investigates the dangers done to natural habitats and game species through governmental destruction and overfishing. Throughout, Williams' prose is beautiful as it describes an environment he hopes to protect, and powerful when pleading for its preservation. Something's Fishy is a tremendous work, showing how fishermen and conservationists can work together towards a common goal.
Well-known nature and conservation writer Ted Williams is an avid fisherman who has devoted many years to writing about the sport and advocating the preservation of bodies of water and species of fish. Here, he brings together his love of angling with his profound sense of responsibility for the environment. Most of the work in this anthology is adapted from articles originally published in Audubon and Fly Rod & Reel (where Williams is conservation editor), and these lively, perceptive pieces take readers across the United States and around the world: trout fishing in Patagonia; bonefishing on South Andros Island in the Bahamas; and tuna fishing off the coast of Massachusetts. Williams’ passion and commitment will inspire fishermen everywhere.
