Fishing Cigarette Cards

The human race's fascination for fish can be traced back to thousands of years. Angling is still as popular as ever perhaps even more so. This might stem from man's desire to escape the increasingly hectic, fast paced modern world that he has created. Maybe mankind envies the seemingly stress free lives of these alien creatures from another world. Or, perhaps mankind is subconsciously fishing for the meaning of life itself.

From 1870s-1930s, tobacco companies produced sets of cigarette cards on many topics, hoping to hook new customers to their products. They were quick to exploit the popularity of fishes and fishing.

I've listed a small selection of cigarette card sets on fish and fishing below. I've provided scans of a sample card from each set and I've tried to list as many card titles as possible.
