A Fisherman's Journey
A Lifetime of Angling Adventures from Northern Wisconsin to Northwest Montana, 1950-2020

  • Come along on a Fishing Journey of a Lifetime!
    Most fishing books are written by experts in piscatorial arts, but Charles Zucker admits from the outset that he is no master fisherperson. A Fisherman’s Journey is the wonderful chronicle of Zucker’s lifetime of fishing adventures from angling for perch in northern Wisconsin as a small child to fly fishing for arctic grayling as a senior citizen in northwestern Montana. He recalls seven decades of fishing experiences in Wisconsin, North Carolina, Minnesota, Texas, Idaho, Wyoming, Alaska, and Montana, and he recounts his evolution from spin casting with live bait and lures to fly fishing.
    Zucker had no idea how important fishing was in his life until he wrote this book, which it turns out is about much more than fishing. He realized that even more wonderful than the productive days he had on the water were the adventures that he had and the people he met along the way. He hopes that by sharing his experiences with readers, he will encourage them to think about their own fishing journey.

Charles Zucker was born and raised on the south side of Chicago. His family annually spent its summer vacations in northern Wisconsin where his mother was reared. It was on one of these vacations more than seventy years ago that with his father and his brother, Joe, he first wet a line in beautiful Summit Lake. That began a life-long love of fishing that continues to this day. Zucker received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Wisconsin and a Ph.D. in history from Northwestern University. After teaching at Fayetteville State University (North Carolina) and Carroll College (Waukesha, Wisconsin), he segued into professional association work representing college professors. He retired as the director of the Texas Faculty Association in 2007. After living in Austin for more than thirty years, he and his wife, Shaya, moved to San Antonio in 2019 where they currently reside.
