Hemingways’ Inspiration

The IGFA has been instrumental in helping put this project together. Pictured above is Ernest Hemingway (right) with Henry Strate and the remains of a magnificent blue marlin they caught off Bimini in 1936. With 1/2 of the fish eaten by sharks, it still weighed in at over 500 pounds, providing the backstory of his epic novel, The Old Man and the Sea.
