1936 1st edition. 8vo (140 x 220mm). Pp263. B/w photograph plates, putting a book before the public whose matter has been founded on careful observation and research work in the field and the laboratory, it is hoped that many problems which some fishery owners and clubs have to meet may be simplified. A special effort has been made to utilize 'everyday' terms where possible, the scientific names being used only to avoid confusion with identification. With the ever-increasing army of anglers, and the consequent demand for first-class fishing, many derelict streams have suddenly gained a new significance in the eyes of their owners; if not - they should have done so". Chapters include: The natural food of trout; The natural supply of food; Characteristics of good trout water; The weed problem; The mud problem; Stocking; The hatchery; Diseases of fish; Predators and competitors; Pollution; Brief general notes on fishery work repairs and management; Mud, and the flavour of trout and salmon; The rainbow trout; Non-sea-going salmon; Stocking with salmon; The improvement of salmon rivers; The making of lies; Artificial spate.
