My Life in Fishing

Stonefly Press has released My Life in Fishing: Favorite Long Stories Told Short, from legendary International Game Fish Association (IGFA) Hall-of-Famer, and holder of more than 44 IGFA world records, Stu Apte.

Though best known for his dogged pursuit of world record tarpon, Apte’s career spans more than 60 years fishing for just about every species of fish caught with both fly rod and conventional tackle. My Life in Fishing is not only a collection of his favorite personal stories of world-record catches, but also glimpses into remarkable friendships with now-historical figures – including Harry and Bess Truman, Ernest Hemingway, and Boston Red Sox greats Ted Williams and Carl Yastremski among others.

My Life in Fishing is a seminal work from one of the founding figures in the sport. In his Foreword, author Thomas McGuane summarized Apte’s passion and contributions best: “I don’t believe anyone has equaled his achievements as a tarpon fisherman: he caught world record fish, he guided others to world records, and he established the ways it would always be done.”

Tom Brokaw, former NBC Nightly News anchor, wrote “Witty, instructive, and engaging, this master of rod and reel is an angler’s angler, and My Life in Fishing is the equivalent of a day in the flats on a school of permit.”
