A scarce California fishing desideratum, with much pertaining to the Catalina Tuna Club, the Southern California Rod & Reel Club, etc. The author himself was the founder of the "36" Club. "Three Six", the author's pseudonym, reflected in the design on the upper cover, refers to a six-thread line, and a six foot, six ounce rod.
