Known for his classic TV series 'Out of Town', Jack Hargreaves was not only a great countryman but also a great angler. This was his only angling book. In each of the fourteen chapters he fishes for a different species, recounting his varied experiences and explaining as he does so, the characteristics of the fish he is attempting to catch. His passion for the natural world and gentle writing style ensures that this is a book that will delight all who read it, from those who sit on a basket and fish with a float, to those who have only ever cast a fly at a lazy trout. Beautifully printed with marbled endpapers and head and tailbands, this 2011 edition of 'Fishing for a Year' includes the original illustrations by Bernard Venables.
