Product Details


"Almost no one has answered ‘why fish?’ better than Mr. Hersey….what he does best of all is evoke wonder." — The New York Times Book Review

"Blues is, of course, about much more than the pleasures and techniques of fishing; it is, as Fisherman tells Stranger, about interconnections — the ties between mankind and the natural world, among others." — The New Yorker

"Wonderful…He gives us a rich and vivid sense of ocean life….The whole thing is as stately as a minuet, and as graceful." — Chicago Sun-Times

"Blues informs and enlightens in the grand tradition of open-air, ‘universe-in-a-grain-of-sand’ writing….Part philosophy, part natural history, part cookbook, part fishing lore, this is a book as singular as its author and his distinguished career."

— Baltimore Sun
