"I would like to dedicate this book to all those who practise the trying art of angling, and especially to those I have known over half a century - well, to most of them! - and whose comradeship or mere acquaintance I have valued immensely. The most individualistic amongst them have inadvertently provided me with ideas for some of the stories and have also enabled me to conjure up characters who, alas, seem to belong to a dying breed, now doubt due in large measure to the stifling effects of the mass media on the free development of personality".
