Anyone know about old fishing books? A friend of mine was cleaning out his attic and gave me The Encyclopedia of Fishing ( Stackpole ) published 1950. Not in the best of conditions but a really nice looking coffe table type book.

Tid bit gathered from reading it... During the 1930's there were 2 Tarpon landed off of Nova Scotia... interesting stuff. Lot's of old fishing methods, tactics and rules of thumb. Book has alot of great info and pics. Amazed to see guys landing HUGE bonefish on Pfluger Reels and Bamboo rods.
