Author, freethinker, adventurer, sportsman and bon vivant. ”Papa” Ernest Hemingway was a legendary sportsman who chased outdoor adventure his entire life. He was always in search of his next fishing or hunting adventure, during which he would draw inspiration for his famous novels. It was from the deck of his beloved vessel, "Pilar", that Hemingway famously landed the largest marlin caught to date in 1935, weighing an astonishing 1175 lbs. He believed his greatest exploit was his success with rod and reel, catching trophy fish from Key West to Havana. His fishing adventures covered cruising the Gulf Stream in search of marlin and tuna to fly fishing in North America, while his hunting adventures included pheasant and duck shooting and stalking big game while on safari in Africa. His extensive travels would shape the legend that is Ernest Hemingway, possibly the world’s greatest adventurer.
