Fin-Nor's story is told by Outdoor journalist Bruce Matthews and antique tackle collector and Fin-Nor expert Ed Pritchard, who take you on a journey alongside legendary anglers in their quest for a reel that would help them capture the largest fishes the world has ever seen.
|Holding a Fin-Nor reel in their hands today, an angler or collector is connected to a vibrant legacy evolved through the vision and determination of many of the greatest big game anglers and conservationists — women and men — the world has ever known. Fin-Nor: The Legacy Years tells that story.||$49.95 USD|
Fin-Nor's story is a fascinating slice of time from a bygone era with appeal for anglers and non-anglers alike. Meticulously researched and compellingly shared, Outdoor journalist Bruce Matthews and antique tackle collector and Fin-Nor expert Ed Pritchard take us on a journey alongside legendary anglers in their quest for a reel that would help them capture the largest fishes the world has ever seen. Along the way Matthews and Pritchard de-mystify a number of myths and shed new light on historical circumstances associated with Fin-Nor and big game fishing.
Chasing marlin and tuna off Bimini, tuna and swordfish off Nova Scotia, and later marlin and swordfish off Peru and Chile, these big game anglers brought Miami-based captains and crew, and a reel that wouldn't quit, to help them catch their world-record fish. The conservation legacy of these great anglers includes the establishment of the International Game Fish Association and support for numerous research efforts at the American Museum of Natural History, the Smithsonian, Yale Oceanography Institute and many others.
