This vintage book contains a popular guide to fishing, with information on angling in salt water, angling for course fish, and angling for trout and grayling. Written in clear, simple language and full of interesting information and invaluable hints and tips, this text will be of considerable utility to the novice angler, and may also be of value to those with more experience as a reference book. The chapters of this text include: Watercraft, Roach, Pike, Perch, Chub, Tench, Carp, Bream, Dace, Trout, Grayling, Bass, Conger, Mackerel, Tope, Codling, Black Bream, Whiting, and Dabs and Flounders. This text contains a wealth of illustrations, and makes for a great addition to collections of allied literature. First published in 1946, we are republishing it now complete with a new, specially-commissioned introduction on the history of fishing.
