Can't disagree with that! A truly masterful read, as are most of his other works. However, he wasn't from the UK so I guess he didn't qualify for the list!Santiago wrote: ↑Sat Apr 21, 2018 8:30 amThe greatest fishing writer would be an American, Hemingway! He wrote many truly great books, some on fishing and some not, and was awarded a Noble Prize for literature for a fishing story, The Old Man and the Sea. I know of no other fishing writer to achieve this.

Evidently, he was American! Perhaps we can conclude that all the British great fishing writers are no longer with us, but still fishing in some far off celestial lake or river in the skies. For certainly, none of our current writers would been in my top 10. Yet, if only living writers were allowed, I would be inclined to add Yates but then would struggle to select any others.
