"excellent places to fish."

Ever since his childhood days at the summer house at Walloon Lake, Michigan, Hemingway had nurtured a life-long passion for fishing. From a favourite spot he shared with Hadley on the Irati river in Spain, to the deep-sea fishing he would later enjoy aboard his 38-foot boat, the Pilar, his great love of the sport was clearly reflected in numerous stories and articles. Indeed, so numerous are they that many have subsequently been brought together under the title, Hemingway on Fishing.
