Summary Philip Wylie's enthralling tales of saltwater fishing have been entertaining readers of the Saturday Evening Post since 1939.

Featuring 22 of Wylie's best Crunch and Des stories, this is a delightful compendium of every thrill fishing has to offer. These beloved adventures include:? ""Widow Voyage""? ""Light Tackle""? "Fifty-four, Forty and Fight"? "The Way of All Fish"? "The Affair of the Ardent Amazon"? "Smuggler?s Cove"? And more favorite classics!With each Crunch and Des story selected by the author?s daughter, these tales begin a journey of saltwater nostalgia, marine adventure, and warmhearted personalities that will last far beyond the last page.
