IT ISN’T MUCH more than a shack. It’s clean and well painted, but it’s still a shack. I’m talking about the tackle shop I frequent, the one on the two-lane highway with the shredding Jolly Roger flying on the days when the bluefish are running.

LONG BEFORE I understood what it meant, the vernal equinox was my most important annual holiday. I think I was fourteen when I realized that I tended to go haywire—the current word is “depression”—during the dark winter months in northern Michigan.

GEORGE PLIMPTON
<p>I FIRST WENT deep-sea fishing with Ernest Hemingway in the spring of 1956. I had gone to Havana to try to finish an interview we had started in Paris and Madrid on the craft of writing. The interview had taken a long time: Hemingway didn’t enjoy talking about his writing—he said that it was an expenditure, like drawing water out of a well that could be put to better use.</p>

IN JULY of 1991, my brother Michael and I took our two seven-year-old sons on the first white-water raft descent of the Great Whale River near James Bay in western Quebec. Last year my employer, the Natural Resources Defense Council, helped organize a second trip at the invitation of the Cree Grand Council, the tribal chiefs of Quebec’s nine Cree communities.

FOR THE PARVENU COWPOKE, giving that pristine straw hat a good working over can be a pretty intimidating task. But fear not—it’s a regional thing. While Northwesterners tend to crunch, crease, roll, and dip a hat, many in the Southwest actually prefer factory-fresh symmetry.

IN RESPONSE to my column in the first Esquire Sportsman, a number of readers contacted me seeking advice. As if it were possible to understand dogs. However, one of these queries provoked considerable soul-searching, because it brought into focus an age-old training controversy.

FOR NEARLY A CENTURY, Morris Rosenfeld and his sons, chiefly Stanley, photographed the world’s great racing yachts. Shooting from the cockpits of their chase boats, the Rosenfelds captured the aristocrats of sailing competition—ranging from the schooner Migrant in 1934 (above) to the recent twelve-meter techno-marvels of America’s Cup contenders Dennis Connor and Ted Turner.

TO MANY fly fishermen, the ceremony of opening day is something to be honored in the breach. It may take perfect weather to bring you out—sun slipping upward in a more southerly arc, wind wheeling round to blow from a milder climate. There may have to be a reasonable chance of falling asleep on a riverbank in the early afternoon.

NOT TOO long ago most American chefs were scared silly at the idea of cooking game and treated it as an afterthought on their menus. What they bought came in frozen from New Zealand, and what they cooked was some heavy-handed, oversauced dish dating back to Escoffier.

Russell Chatham
The first time I ever paid to go fishing was when I took a so-called destination trip to Iceland. It was very expensive, but I had never fished for Atlantic salmon, and I was looking for some romance, for new experiences in new lands. Aside from the actual invitation, which seemed somehow like a privilege, I had just finished a salmon and steelhead season in California, Oregon, and Washington that had me discouraged because of the crowds.

DEBORAH WEISGALL
JOHN JAMES AUDUBON was a hunter, woodsman, storyteller, merchant, diarist, poseur, portraitist, failure, family man, naturalist, and entrepreneur. He was also one of the greatest artists America has ever produced. His two monumental series, Birds of America, published from 1826 to 1838, and Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America, published from 1845 to 1848, remain as compelling and desirable to collectors as they were when they first appeared.
