The WPBFC is one of the oldest, largest institutions of its kind, and certainly one of the most celebrated in all of sport. Founded in 1934 as a civic antidote to the Great Depression, the club went on to pioneer such practices as catch-and-release angling, the use of light tackle for sailfish, and aggressive resource advocacy. This book, Mike Rivkin's newest, engages one in real adventure, and is great fun! Characters such as Cecil "Zeke" Cornelius, Johnny Rybovich and Landsdell "Bounce" Anderson enrich the tale. The Club's Silver Sailfish Derby, established in 1935 remains the longest billfish tournament in the world. Enriching this tale are 200 classic images, many never before published‹worth the price of admission alone. Hardbound, signed by the author. 9" x 12", 245 pages.
