"A personal account of the angling affliction". Worldwide fishing adventures, mostly set in Africa and South America. Big-game and exotic freshwater fishing. A great read for any angler planning a trip to the tropics (not to mention those who are only planning to plan). "Harry Parsons is an angling addict whose work as an agronomist has taken him to many remote corners of the world. This unassuming author has seized the opportunity to seek out fish in dark jungles, parched wilderness and tribal war zones. He takes us in pursuit of the hard-fighting Lukanani and Piranha in the Amazon basin, catches the largest rod-caught Tiger Shark off Kenya, fishes for Swordfish and Tuna off Portugal, catches Black Marlin up to 1000lb on the Great Barrier Reef, Tiger Fish and Niger Perch from West Africa. Harry describes his adventures with charm, modesty and style". Chapters include: Big sharks from little boats; Isolating the fishing gene; The girl on the bridge; Swamplands of the Lukanani; Calypsos, lugers and leathercoats; Tiger, tiger in the Niger; Tea time in Kenya; In the fighting chair at Shimoni; Ox-eye herrings and tribal war in Papua; Tarpon and tapir in Belize; Stillwaters run deep; An angler's times.
