"It is not too much to claim that shark fishing as a branch of game fishing was unknown in Britain until Brigadier Caunter demonstrated that sharks - and huge sharks at that - were to be caught in quantity off the south coast. All the drama and excitement of this form of big game angling is conveyed in this book, in addition to the detailed coverage of techniques, sea lore, the identification of the different species, etc. The many who already fish for sharks, and the many thousands who want to, will find this book indispensible to the realization of their ambition."
