Description


This is a 1967 Joe Godfrey pictorial map of the United States and its game fish. Depicting from central Canada south to Central Mexico, the United States is highlighted with a golden yellow. Ichthyologically accurate labeled illustrations of fish populate the map. Comparatively large illustrations of an Atlantic salmon and a Pacific salmon flank the title cartouche, while rainbow trout, largemouth bass, bluegill, and numerous other fish appear throughout the rest of the map. An inset along the right border details Bermuda. Insets on the left focus on Alaska, Hawaii, and Mexico. Indexes list famous fishing places and divide them between fresh and saltwater. A handful of humorous vignettes featuring fishermen appear around the map as well, including one where a fish the size of a man's head is flying through the air at the fisherman in question with its mouth wide open. Another, just to the right, suggests the phrase 'there's always a bigger fish'.
