The fascinating memoir of one of the great tarpon anglers and guides of all time. Starting in the 1930s, it tells of Stu Apte’s service in the U.S. Navy and commercial flying for Pan American Airways, which took him to exotic waters around the world where he honed his angling skills. The book continues with chapters on fishing with the sporting world’s celebrities—from Ted Williams to Joe Brooks—as well as hosting star-studded fishing trips and other lively adventures. Through the years, Apte has held 44 saltwater light-tackle and fly-rod world records, including the iconic tarpon.
