Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This book of fishy tales features angling stories from around the world. Some from the river banks of the UK - some from shores as far afield as Alaska, Africa, India and the Tropics. They encompass all types of rod & line fishing (fly/sea/coarse/fishing etc.) and all types of quarry piscatorial (Trout/Salmon/Tiger Fish/Pike/Marlin and so on).
Effectively a book of short stories, it's well written and, as one would might expect in an anthology of this type, often written in good humour. Some are simple descriptions of days out that any angler would envy while others fall into the class off 'the one that got away'! Some are rather far-fetched but all are fun to read.
The author is obviously a very experienced angler and writes from expert knowledge, so the budding angler will no doubt find many useful hints and tips hidden amongst its pages. It makes a good bedtime read or something to flick through on the downstairs loo, and I'd recommend it as a present to any angler who wants a good, light-hearted read about his or her hobby.
