One of the world's best-loved angling books. New England surf-casting, flyfishing in Canada, Shetland and the Western Isles, Chile, France, Jugoslavia, Norway and Devon. The poor quality of materials used during the war ensure that it is unusual for early editions to be found in very good condition. Chapters include: The early days - surf-casting along the New Jersey sands, the Cattyrackers of the Delaware Bay, and the wild geese of the Carolinas; Russian Revolution - and Leonid Andriev's yellow perch, a voluntary exile in British Columbia, the lonely house-boat, and keeping yourself alive with rod and gun; Saga of the Pacific calmon; The spell of the Shetlands, on the northwest tip of Scotland, and gillies; Less than an hour from London, days in the Hebrides, and Murdo MacDermid; Six wandering years - drives around Ireland, and political fishing, horses over the Caucasus, fishing the headwaters of the Kuban, an English hermit in Moscow, unfriendly frontiers on the Danube; Four countries in one year - Chile, England, France and Norway, rainbow trout before the volcano of Chillan, over the Andes, an exiled dictator; Fishing the West Country of England, reward; The fish chef of the old 'Olympic', the passionate fishermen of Haute Savoie; The swift rivers of Norway; Jugoslavia, mountain-climbing, and poaching the Regent's river.
