The author gives an interesting account of many and various ways of catching fish found all over the world. Spearing, trapping, various netting techniques, nets made with spiders' webs by tribesmen from Sulawesi, cormorants in the Far East, snaring gobies in the mountains of the Phillipines, and of course, an incredulous exposition of the complex rituals of the aboriginal carp fishermen of the British Isles.
