It's inevitable that, as an angler, spending such a lot of time close to the water's edge, sometime or another, something unusual is going to happen. The stories in the book tell of the unexpected, the odd, amusing and even some weird tales that have occurred while out fishing: tales of 'strange goings-on' at that most mysterious of waters Redmire Pool, of rivers gods, unknown beasts, legends and even phantoms - strange paths to the water, that first time of night fishing alone, such weird noises in the dark, those hairs on the back of your neck, and embarrassing incidents that will make you smile; all are here for you to enjoy. Contributions from Len Arbery, Peter Baker, Chris Ball, Vic Beyer, Fred Buller, Eddie Chambers, Ron Clay, Pete Climo, Fred Crouch, Dennis Gander, Stef Horak, Peter Jackson, Martin James, Bob Jones, Mike Kavanagh, Maurice Pledger, Eddie Price, Chris Quinn, Alan Rawden, Paul Swainson, Fred Sykes, Terry Theobald, Bruce Vaughan, Richard Walker, John Watson and of course the two editors, Bob Buteux and Tony Meers.
