HOW TO FISH - THE YATES' WAY,
This review is from: How to Fish (Hardcover)
This long-awaited book from the pen of one of our best-loved angling authors is essential reading for anyone who is appreciative, not just of fishing, but of our natural world and the rivers which course through our beautiful landscape. 'How to Fish' is not an instructional book on the methods of fishing - it is much, much more than that. Based on one day's fishing (28th September)Chris chronicles each cast of his fishing rod with a new chapter, each cast reminding him of other days, other fish, other companions and other deep pools, each offering new promise. His words are evocative and he has that rare ability to convey the sights, sounds and scents of the river and its piscatorial inhabitants, the magnificent Perch being his quarry on this day. Whether or not you choose to fish, Chris's writing will send you off to the riverbank just to be close to the water and enjoy what nature provides. His writing has reached a new level and I challenge anyone not to find something they enjoy in this very special book.
