Herbert Hoover, Fishing for Fun and to Wash Your Soul, Signed Ltd. Ed.
“…The Glint of Sunshine on the Water,
the Excitement of the Dark Blue Seas…”
Herbert Hoover’s Fishing for Fun….Signed, Limited Edition.
A year before his death, his own angling days behind him, Hoover published Fishing for Fun and To Wash Your Soul.
In a wistful postscript he reminded readers that the joys of outdoor life did not end with the last catch. “Two months after you return from a fishing expedition you will begin again to think of the snowcap or the distant mountain peak, the glint of sunshine on the water, the excitement of the dark blue seas, and the glories of the forest. And then you buy more tackle and more clothes for the next year. There is no cure for these infections. And that big fish never shrinks.”
Very good to excellent.
