More About Tales from a Florida Fish Camp by Jack Montrose
 
 
 
Overview
Join Jack Montrose, a fish camp regular since 1965, as he reminisces about the good old days fishing on the St. Johns River. Tales from a Florida Fish Camp captures the atmosphere and humor of fish camps, where fishermen gathered to tell tall tales of their fishing exploits, play practical jokes, and relax over a cold beer. Here you'll find tales of more than just fish (though the ones caught were THIS BIG). you'll encounter snakes, gators, cats (ordinary house ones as well as a panther), turtles, manatees, a skunk, and lots and lots of bugs, as well as a few celebrities--including a baseball manager, a general, and an astronaut. The stars are more often than not the boats, and if the tale's about an airboat, well, don't expect the teller to have dry shoes. You're in for huge belly laughs as you read about fish camp contests, tourists, Yankees, and Flash, the hard-drinking, snake-chasing, spitz/bull-dog mix who was everyone's best friend. Practical jokes abound at fish camps: the author even got to be sheriff for a day when one of his buddies played a joke on him and some unwitting tourists.
