A good, if slightly dated, introduction to UK sea angling. "Certain parts of this book originally appeared in abbreviated form as articles in Angling Times... [Also], it might perhaps be advisable to mention that I have no particular interest in any items of tackle described in this book. They have been chosen because they seemed most suitable for illustrating a certain point raised in the text, or were of a make and design that I have used for many years and found satisfactory". Chapters include:- For beginner's only; Making up the tackle; Baits; Pier and jetty fishing; Shore fishing; Rock fishing; Boat fishing; Boat-fishing techniques; Sea fish worth catching - and how to catch them; Night fishing; The fish's world; Sea-angling holidays; The sea-angler's workshop; Buying a boat; Boat maintenance; Cooking the catch. An appendix gives a list of British rod-caught record sea fish, compiled November 1957.
