"It is admitted that fishing possibilities in India are so limitless that a lifetime of application would not exhaust them. But unlike other sports the pleasure to be derived from fishing in India does not depend on expertness alone. To obtain the best results the proper tools are necessary. The continuance of the use of Brobdignagian tackle for this gentle recreation is therefore, as the author rightly says, an admittance of ineptitude on the part of the angler; especially when modern light tackle has more than proved its ability to deal with the hard-fighting salmon and trout even in the fastest of European waters". "Worthy of its place with the best on the sportsman's bookshelf. It should be a tremendous help to the fisherman who is new to the sport in India". (Onlooker). Chapters include:- The case for light fishing; The light fisher's outfit; Spinning baits; Spinning practice (the short rod); Threadline practice; Bait fishing; Making, mending, and other oddments; Notes on Indian fishes (Punjab); Localities and the fishing register.
