Consider the Fish: Fishing for Canada from Campbell River to Petty Harbour is a comprehensive history of the relationship between the fishing tradition and Canadian culture. Christopher Gudgeon travels to the biggest fishing hubs across Canada to find how intrinsic fishing is to Canadian identity, to talk to people about history and lore, and to catch a fish or two. Gudgeon fishes for the famous Tyee salmon in Campbell Rive, B.C. r; talks bait and reels with the folk in Gimli, Manitoba; cheers along at the World Tune Champion in Wedgeport, Nova Scotia; and greets the Queen and Prince Philip on the coast of Newfoundland. In between places, Gudgeon catches the entire essence of fishing and its relation with Canada: a passionate fisherman fearing the decline of his industry; the heat of a debate between two tellings of a great story; a moment of communal glory. Consider the Fish is an engaging, richly peopled travelogue that serves as an image of what fishing means truly means to Canada.
