About this book

The captivating watercolors of James Prosek, the artist the New York Times calls "the Audubon of the fishing world." In the tradition of his acclaimed Trout: An Illustrated History, renowned naturalist, artist, and fisherman James Prosek captures thirty-five of the most pursued game fish – from striped bass to tarpon, swordfish to bonefish – as well as many creatures that share these marine ecosystems through rich, highly detailed watercolors painted specifically for this volume.

Each painting reflects Prosek’s individual experience with a single fish. The artist traveled the world to experience firsthand each species just out of the water before the fish lose their true colors. The original works are life-size portraits (from a 14-inch porgy to a 12-foot blue marlin), and details from the originals are reproduced at full size to give a sense of scale.This book is a must-have for saltwater anglers, conservationists, art lovers, and anyone passionate about the beauty of the coastline and the mysteries swimming off its shores.

The deluxe edition includes a limited edition print suitable for framing, signed by the artist, James Prosek. The book for the deluxe limited editon is bound in a special case embossed with the outline of one of Prosek's iconic fish. Book and print are nestled together in a beautiful cloth clamshell case featuring a tipped-on image on top and a silk pull ribbon within.
