Fishing Hawaii Offshore was written for fishermen who like to read, readers who like to fish and everyone who enjoys exciting stories of men, women and the sea. It was inspired by the great books of the classic age of angling literature. When big-game fishing was in its infancy, superb writers brought their adventures back from far-flung places as alive and vivid as when they were written.
