Chapters by Eric Parker, J.H.R. Bazley, Antony Bridges, Edward Ensom ("Faddist"), F.H. Heald, Stephen Hill, A.E. Hobbs, J.A. Milne, J.C. Moore, A.J. Rudd, Eric Taverner, Dr W.J. Turrell, F.W.K. Wallis and Alban Bacon. Turrell's "Pike fishing" and Ensom's "Roach and dace fishing" were reprinted from this book. F.W.K. Wallis' chapter, "The modern light float cast from the reel: Nottingham style," is of particular interest. "...covers all the coarse fish and almost every aspect of coarse fish angling, not excluding dry-fly fishing, scale-reading and fishery management. It has been termed the 'coarse-fish angler's Bible' and is lavishly illustrated. This book contains a masterly chapter on 'The Literature of Coarse Fishing'".
