They can reach burst speeds of 70 miles an hour. Their fighting stamina and migratory habits are legendary. But blue marlin are not easy to catch. Even experienced anglers typically spend weeks or months?not to mention small fortunes?trying to connect with precious few of these elusive ocean prizes. So, if you met a man who has caught an astonishing 1,730 blue marlin during the last 14 years, what would you ask him? Meet Steve Campbell. He has answered practically every question the avid bluewater angler could possibly think to ask him?how, why, where, when, and then some?in his brilliant new book, Blue Marlin Magic. Steve is a highly seasoned and skilled sport-fishing captain from New Zealand. He has spent a lifetime fishing throughout the South Pacific. This unprecedented book is nearly 600 pages, printed in vibrant color in gorgeous large format. It’s a real blockbuster.
