The Legacy of Zane Grey: the fish, the boats, the stories that were told.

Excerpt from Zane Grey’s
Tales of the Angler’s Eldorado

“What a fish! I, who had loved fish from earliest boyhood, hung around that marlin absorbed, obsessed, entranced and sick with the deferred possibility of catching one like it for myself. How silly such hope! Could I ever expect such marvellous good luck? Yet I knew as I gazed upon it that I would keep on trying as long as strength enough was left me...Oh the madness of a fisherman! The strange something that is born, not made!”
