The universal interest in world records is nowhere more compelling than in the sports world. Fishermen, both pros and weekend anglers, dream of catching “the big one” and BIG: The 50 Greatest World Record Catches will more than satisfy the imagination and fuel the desire to fish through the off season.

Artist Flick Ford and International Game Fish Association (IGFA) historian Mike Rivkin have joined to tell the stories of the fifty most amazing record fish catches from around the world, selected for their sheer size, popularity, beauty, and classic record story. Through species research and archival photography, renowned artist Flick Ford reconstructs a portrait of each record catch as it would have looked emerging from the water. This book salutes the sportsmanship of dedicated fishermen, the history of angling and the fine art that brings it alive.
