Attention Fishermen -- Seeking Fishing Misadventure Stories for
Publication


Got a true bizarre, disastrous, or comical fishing story? Submit it
for publication in the forthcoming book Fishing's Greatest
Misadventures.

Do you have a story about the one that got away? Or a story about a
fishing related calamity such as: going overboard, sinking your boat,
getting attacked by the thing you caught, getting lost or stranded in
the water, getting pranked by buddies, having horrid luck, or some
other comical or terrible disaster? Casagrande Press wants your story
for a new book.


Casagrande Press is seeking nonfiction fishing misadventure stories,
articles, and essays for publication in the forthcoming book Fishing's
Greatest Misadventures. The press is looking for true fishing stories
about bad judgment calls, pranks, comic/ironic episodes, disaster,
attacking fish or other animals, bizarre injuries, misfortune, injury,
loss of wit or limb, panic, critical conditions, contest meltdowns,
rough weather, everyday fears, fishing trips gone wrong, engine
failure and lost at sea episodes, etc. The press looks for gripping
stories that lightly, or deeply, probe the character or psychology of
the storyteller or the person that the story is about.


Submission Guidelines


1) There is no fee or cost to submit a story


2) Previously published stories accepted


3) Writers paid contributor copies and $100 per story upon publication

4) No word length limit

5) Submit online at
www.casagrandepress.com

6) Taking submissions now through March 15th, 2008.

About the book

Fishing's Greatest Misadventures, to be published in July 2008, will
present 30 true fishing stories which cover the spectrum from
terrifying to comical to downright bizarre. In these pages both
everyday fishermen and pros tell their stories of freak or
catastrophic accidents, fish attacks, sabotage, pranks, getting lost
at sea, idiotic decisions, eerie or unexplained incidents and other
jaw dropping calamities. These stories bring to life the strange
possibilities that await us once we cast our lines.




A note about the type of fishing stories the press is taking:
The editors will accept stories about all types of rod-and-reel
fishing including near-shore, offshore, river, stream, lake and ice
fishing. And fishing from boats, piers, shores, bridges and anywhere
else from where you can cast a line. The editors will also accept
stories about spear fishing, noodling (fishing with your bare hands),
sport fishing, tournament fishing, and commercial fishing (where the
story involves hooks and lines but not nets and traps). Casagrande
Press will not accept stories about dynamite fishing, cyanide fishing,
whaling, dolphin hunting or other forms of sea mammal hunting. Open to
fishing enthusiasts and writers of all levels.

Remember the "Exit Laughing" page in "Field & Stream?"
Read some really funny fishing stories there.
I think "Argosy" occasionally had some good ones too.
