Bass fishing history of the Thousand Islands N. Y.
The history of the Thousand Islands is littered with the tales of fishing and the big one that got away. Samuel Sondheim, grandfather of Oscar winner Stephen Sondheim was a frequent visitor to the New Frontenac Hotel; in fact he passed away at the hotel. His favorite pastime was fishing and the story of him and his four friends catching 400 bass in one day, an average of 80 bass each is astounding, but H. R. Clarke’s tales are extraordinary.
