U.K. fishing for conger, halibut, sharks, skate, tope and tunny. "This book, the first to deal comprehensively with big-game fishing in British and North European waters, recalls the early history of the sport and the contributions of its pioneers, and records what is known of the movements and habits of the great fish which form the quarry of the saltwater sport-fisherman. The species dealt with are shark - including the ferocious mako from tropical seas - tope, conger eel, halibut, giant skate, tunny, monk fish, angler fish and - a rare but undisputed visitor - the broadbill swordfish. There are detailed descriptions of the techniques and tackle required to catch these fish, and much valuable information about baits and the best fishing-grounds for the various species."
