Abstract:

"With humor, photographer Arthur Tress has created within a beautiful old fish tank a charismatic fantasy world. His provocative tableaux, staged around the country and peopled with funky knickknacks and flea-market heroes, are quick to delight us. With the fisherman, we travel through history and human experience and learn how to be a better fisherman, and how to become attuned to the rhythms of the natural world." "Fish Tank Sonata is a book for anyone who loves to fish, for anyone who has ever been fascinated by the fantastic miniature universes within aquariums, for fans of Tress (who have long anticipated this book), and for readers of all ages concerned about protecting the environment for future generations."--Jacket.
