GREENWICH, Conn. - Angling historian Mike Rivkin will give a talk on the evolution of big-game fishing Sunday at Greenwich's Bruce Museum.

It is free and takes place at 2 p.m., Sunday, at the museum, located at One Museum Drive in Greenwich
Rivkin, an author who is also president of the Tuna Club Foundation, will discuss the people, places and fish who have defined big-game fishing since its early days in the waters off California's Santa Catalina Island in the late 1890s, according to a Bruce Museum press release.
