4.0 out of 5 stars How it feels to fish, 22 July 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: How to Fish (Paperback)
This is a wonderful little book. The title is more than a little misleading though. You don't learn how to fish, but you do learn how it feels to fish.

There is no "use this float and put the weights like that." There is however "mist rolling in, pots of tea and how it feels to pluck a perch from under those trees."

Its a series of anecdotes really. The view from the waterside. Every angler of whatever pursuation will love it. Even non-anglers will enjoy it for its meditations and atmospherics.

Yates if an amiable eccentric and a nice departure from the kit- obsessed testosterone crowd who seem to dominate angling books and TV programmes now. He fishes with ancient split cane rods and centrepin reels. And catches large fish.
