Renowned fishing guide Barney Farley worked the Texas coastal waters out of Port Aransas for more than half a century. In these stories and reflections, Farley imparts a lifetime of knowledge about fish (silver trout, sand trout, speckled trout, redfish, ling, catfish, jack, kingfish, you name it) and gives advice about how to fish, where to fish, and when to fish. From his perspective in the mid-1960s, Farley was not satisfied simply to lament the disappearance of once-abundant species. He also strongly voiced his views on the need for conservation. 'The importance of Barney Farley's book to conservation and sport fishing, as well as to the economic wellbeing of our Texas and Gulf Coast, cannot be over emphasized' - Dick Conolly, Corpus Christi.
