A pot-pourri of angling information: glossaries of angling terms, an anthology of short angling pieces, the fisherman's inn, cooking and boat (and coracle) handling, a who's who of anglers, fly-dressers and angling writers, and lots, lots more. "Page after page is as alluring as a well-tied fly, yet there is no lack of very useful information and hints on tackle and boats, flies and baits; scale reading; measuring, packing and cooking fish; fisherman's birds, flowers, weeds and inns. A valuable book of reference". (The Scotsman).
