THE CATALINA "SALT WATER FISHING" By Van Campen Heilner With twelve plates in full color from paintings by W. Goadby Lawrence, to- gether with numerous black and white illustrations by the same artist. And one hundred thirty-six pages of photo- graphs by the author and others, printed in offset. Foreword by Zane Grey. SS.OO Here at last is the book for which the angling world has long been wait- ing. Never before has the whole sub- ject of salt water fishing been so thor- oughly covered. From Albacore to Zebrafish it tells you all there is to know. From the great leaping marlin and giant tuna to the lowly plaice or flounder, 'the author runs the conl- plete ganmt of angling emotions. From Nova Scotia to the Caribbean and from British Columbia to the South Seas, the chapters form a series of fascinating anecdotes told as only Mr. Heilner knows how .to tell them. At the end of each one is a "Guide", giving exhaustive information about tackle to use for each fish and when, where and how to go about catching them. Mr. Heilner .is also a yachtsman of long experience and in the chapter en- titled "Boa'ts and Cruising", describes the various kinds of fishing boats in use in different sections. Then he gives a never-to'be-forgotten account of a famous voyage made by himself and three companions in a small mo- tor boat from New Jersey to the coasts of Sou,th America. No writer is better equipped to write on salt water fishing than Mr. Heilner. One of the great pioneers in big game angling, he has pursued his favorite hobby to the four corners of the world and shares with Zane Grey. .the credit for creating for this won- derful sport the tremendous popularity it enjoys today. Many of the various kinds of tackle now in use are the re- sult of his experience and suggestions. Written by one of the world's rec- ognized authorities on salt water fish- ing and illustrated with the most re- markable paintings and photographs of angling and of fish which have ever been assembled within the covers.of a single volume, this book becomes one of the finest works on the subject that has ever been published and without doubt will take its place among the great classics of angling literature. A de luxe first edition of 199 copies has been made especially for the au- thor. Printed on Japan paper and bound in extra silk cloth. Each copy numbered and autograph- ed by Van Campen Heilner. Boxed, $25.oo. o- Advertising is a courtesy due the people.
