ABOUT THE BOOK
Bill Plummer (1922-2007) was one of the greatest bass fisherman who ever lived. His influence on the sport is great; Alex Langer, inventor of the Flying Lure, calls him "one of the quiet fathers of modern fishing," and his best-known lure, the Super Frog, is considered on the finest fish-catching baits ever invented.
Yet the actual fishing philosophy that Bill Plummer espoused--and more importantly lived--has been revealed only to a few close confidants. Here, for the first time, the Reverend Norman Helm (a friend and fishing companion of Plummer's) details Bill Plummer's bass fishing philosophy, from equipment to weather and everything in between. This book will be a revelation to new bass anglers, but even old hands can learn much. For Bill's philosophy was not just about catching more and bigger fish, it was a philosophy of life.
In this book you will meet the Magic Man--and if you take to heart what it can teach you, your fishing, and life, will be improved.
The book includes an outstanding foreword on the life and legacy of Bill Plummer written by Thomas P. Fusco, author of the acclaimed The Complete Guide to Bill Plummer Lures and the Vintage Tackle of Harrison Industries, available from The Whitefish Press.
