Additional Information


The expert angling author, H. T. Sheringham teamed up with the illustrator G. E. Studdy (of 'Bonzo' fame) to produce, in 1925, a most hilarious and charming book. No fisherman will keep a straight face on reading the text and viewing the illustrations. This book is an ideal gift to any fellow angler. We offer a brief excerpt: "A Bull It sometimes happens that you come upon a bull suddenly and without a moment for thought or plan. Then you must depend on the moral dignity of man, on a haughty brow, a flashing eye. Do not, however, presume on your manifest superiority. Behave as one gentleman to another. If the bull is right-minded he will move slowly away.If not, if he shows a disposition to contest your passage, you must advanceupon him, shouting in a great and terrible voice. If this has no effect, you are obviously in a tight place, and there is but one thing to do. Lie down at once and pretend to be dead." Quotation from a letter by the author - "Some (underlined) of it is still amusing - Mr Takingsilk and the Nox Ambrosiana, for instance. With other parts I am not so pleased as Iwas. "Nos et mutamur", alas! But Studdy's corn is immense - worth the pricethe publishers ask for the whole book".
