Overview

Few people connect Endicott House, the famous conference center of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, with fishing in Florida, but actually the handsome mansion that has been the site of so many notable meetings is a bricks-and-mortar memorial to one of America's most enthusiastic sports fishermen, Wendell Endicott. This book is his magnum opus, an important piece of Florida history and a lasting contribution to folklore and fishing in the Keys.
