“Viewed from any perspective, Jim Gasque’s Hunting and Fishing in the Great Smokies ranks as a regional classic.  Written in the simple, sprightly style of a gifted storyteller, the book carries the reader to streams of dreams and lakes of wonder.”

Jim Casada, from the Introduction

Jim Gasque’s classic 1948 work offers a period portrait of outdoor life in the Great Smoky Mountains.  Filled with anecdotes, fishing and hunting stories, and recollections of legendary local sportsmen and guides, Hunting and Fishing in the Great Smokies presents a social history of these activities before the founding of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in 1934.  The book also offers an insightful glimpse of the region just prior to an era of significant development and growth.

Gasque’s guide covers trout streams and trout fishing, lake fishing and hunting.  Thanks to careful preservation by the park, the streams Gasque describes still draw sportsmen today. His tips on prime fly-fishing spots are remarkably up to date and remain valuable for twenty-first-century anglers.  Hunting is now prohibited within the park, but in surrounding areas it is still common. 

The late Jim Gasque was an outdoor writer from Asheville, North Carolina, and author of Bass Fishing: Techniques, Tactics and Tales.
