"This is a book that brings to life over forty years of angling". Very readable too, and a book with a great deal to say which many will find interesting and others controversial. Yorkshire beck trout, loch-fishing in the far north of Scotland, and Fenland specimen hunting. Trout, salmon, pike, carp and others. "John Aston is a gifted angler and writer and A Dream Of Jewelled Fishes is a special book. Superbly written, some of the descriptions and deft turns of phrase leap off the pages like the fish of our dreams." Chris Yates. "[John] uses words as a painter uses a pallet or a pianist a keyboard." (Wild Trout Trust Magazine).
