Publisher's Summary

Lifelong fisherman Paul Knight knows the thrill of the chase, the one–on–one battle of endurance between man and beast that is sport fishing. Like Hemingway, and legions of others who've tested themselves against nature, Knight has traveled to remote parts of the globe to reel in stories of epic adventures with rod and line.

In Amazing Fishing Stories, he takes listeners on a breathtaking expedition from frozen Russian rivers to the wild jungles of India, detailing the heart-pounding capture of sailfish, tuna, and shark, and thrilling struggles with monsters from the deep. There are wonderful stories of fly fishing, as Knight describes in captivating detail the pursuit of salmon, trout, and more exotic sport from the Scottish Highlands to the Indian jungle. International in scope, and covering all types of fishing from open ocean to mountain stream, this eclectic collection of well told fishing stories has something for everyone.

Not a family listen

this book looked perfect for a long family car journey with 3 kids and a husband all mad on fishing. sadly the repetitive bad language meant we turned it off. shame noone thought to edit it out so a wider audience could enjoy it.

Amazing?

Amazing? Really? Perhaps it's because I am not an active fisherman that I did not really enjoy this book. Too many stories about ghillies, salmon and flies. Too much fiction and expansion of an anecdote into a tale. There are some very tame ghost stories mixed in too. Also, I did not enjoy the narrator's dodgy attempts at "foreign" accents most of them sounding vaguely Jamaican, whether in Africa, South America or Cuba, as the always-British fishermen went off on the occasional exotic trip.
Writing about fishing can be very dramatic and illuminating, even to the layman in his armchair, but this was a disappointment. And ill-named.
