A New Blog

My name is Dr. Todd E.A. Larson and I am a college history professor fascinated with the history of fishing. I have started this new blog for anyone who has an interest in fishing history, including the history of baits (lures, spinners, flies), rods and reels, techniques (saltwater, fly fishing) specialization (bass fishing, musky fishing, etc.), and people (Zane Grey, Hemingway, etc.).

I have written a host of articles and books on the subject of outdoor America, including a forthcoming work on the history of the fish hook in America. I plan to use this blog to distribute vignettes, articles, links, and original content to people who, like me, have a passion for the outdoors.

I also plan to use this as a forum to stimulate discussion on various aspects of fishing and environmental history.

So keep tuned in! I plan to work on this blog and hopefully update it on a regular basis.
