Fishing Yesterday s Gulf Coast (Gulf Coast Books, sponsored by Texas A M University-Corpus Christi)
Fishing Yesterday's Gulf Coast (Gulf Coast Books, sponsored by Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi)
by Barney Farley
Paperback from TAMU Press
ISBN: 1603440461

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.

Perhaps no one could chronicle the changes in sport and commercial fishing along the Central Texas Coast more ably and more passionately than Farley. When he came to Texas in 1910, he reported that he could get in a rowboat and using only a push pole, make his way "to the fishing grounds and catch a hundred pounds or more of trout and redfish" in a few hours. A couple of years later, the shrimp trawlers arrived. As they plied the Gulf in increasing numbers, they depleted the shrimp populations in the bays, and Farley watched the fish move farther and farther offshore, following their ever more elusive food source.

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. Many of the problems he identified are still with us, and some of the solutions he prescribed have since been adopted.

This book is both an appealing reminiscence and a cautionary tale. Anyone who cares about fishing and the health of the Gulf's waters will find an authoritative and completely engaging voice in Barney Farley.

 
Hide, Horn, Fish, and Fowl: Texas Hunting and Fishing Lore (Publication of the Texas Folklore Society)
Hide, Horn, Fish, and Fowl: Texas Hunting and Fishing Lore (Publication of the Texas Folklore Society)

Hardcover from University of North Texas Press
ISBN: 1574413201
What would cause someone to withstand freezing temperatures in a cramped wooden box for hours on end, or stand in waist-high rushing waters, flicking a pole back and forth over and over--in many cases with nothing whatsoever to show for his efforts? Why is it that, into the twenty-first century, with the convenience of practically any type of red meat or fish available at the local supermarket, we continue to hunt game and fish on open waters? The answer is that no matter how sophisticated we think we are, no matter how technologically advanced we become, there is still something deep within us that beckons us to "the hunt."

This desire creates the customs, beliefs, and rituals related to hunting--for deer, hogs, and other four-legged critters, as well as fish and snakes, and other things that perhaps aren't physically alive, but capture our interest as much as the prey mentioned above. These rituals and customs lead to some of our most treasured stories, legends, and practices. This volume of the Publications of the Texas Folklore Society includes serious, introspective articles on hunting and fishing, as well as humorous tall tales and "windies" about the big ones that got away--all lore that reminds us of that drive that calls us to become predators again.

Glory of the Silver King: The Golden Age of Tarpon Fishing (Gulf Coast Books, sponsored by Texas A M University-Corpus Christi)
Glory of the Silver King: The Golden Age of Tarpon Fishing (Gulf Coast Books, sponsored by Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi)
by Hart Stilwell
Hardcover from TAMU Press
ISBN: 1603442677
A tribute to a fish, a sport, and a time now past . . .Through a series of chance encounters over several years, fishing guide and journalist Brandon Shuler unearthed multiple drafts of a nearly finished manuscript by an almost forgotten Texas sports writer, Hart Stilwell. Titled "Glory of the Silver King,"the manuscript vividly captured the history of tarpon and snook fishing on the Texas and Mexico Gulf Coast from the 1930s to the end of Stilwell's life in the early 1970s.Stilwell was a seasoned outdoors journalist with a passion for salt-water fishing. Now, with Shuler's careful research, editing, and annotation, this lost manuscript has found new life as both an entertaining "fish tale" and a historical snapshot of a region's natural heritage. It successfully conveys the thrill of fishing for these once abundant species at the same time it tracks--and laments--the rise, decline, and eventual fall of their fisheries in Texas (which Shuler is able to report are now experiencing a rebound).In a personal and informative introduction, Shuler paints a portrait of Stilwell and tells the story of the discovery and evolution of the manuscript. He also provides a look into his own life as an angler and writer, creating a connection with Stilwell that gives the work authenticity and relevance.Anglers will delight in Stilwell's rollicking prose. Environmentalists will appreciate the book's lesson in ocean conservation. For all who live on or near the Gulf Coast, Glory of the Silver King reintroduces a forgotten literary treasure and a magnificent fish that once filled the waters at our favorite coastal retreats."Hart Stilwell was a world-class raconteur and storyteller. His unpublished manuscript on the glory days of coastal fishing became an underground legend, passed around like a sacred totem for decades. Editor Brandon Shuler has revived Stilwell's folksy charm and penetrating insights, and the result is this engaging and important book."--Steven L. Davis, curator, The Wittliff Collections
