WHERE TO FISH: THE "FIELD" GUIDE TO THE FISHING IN THE RIVERS and LAKES OF THE WORLD. [1933]. Edited by H.D. Turing.

ND (1933) 59th edition. 8vo (142 x 215mm). xxx pp advertisements + 440 pp + xxxix-xliv pp ads. 8 colour plates of flies and baits. Folding map. Green cloth, spine titled in gilt, gilt trout vignette on upper board, gilt Cogswell and Harrison advert to rear board.

This edition has seven colour plates of flies billed as 'The "Field" Selection of Flies' and one plate showing 'Standard Types of Spinning Baits', "There is no suggestion that the selections given are necessarily the best .. ...They are simply an attempt to supply a need, the reality of which is amply proved by the enquiry, 'What flies shall I take?' which is one of the most frequent addresses to the Field. The underlying idea has been to suggest a dozen or so patterns which, if they are in the possession of an angler visiting this or that part of the British Isles, should at least enable him to fish with a reasonable chance of success.. ..The patterns shown are by Malloch, of Perth". The sub-title's claim that this book covers rivers and lakes "of the world" is not altogether inaccurate, as can be seen from the chapter headings: A review of 1932 and 1933; Books, 1932 and 1933; Obituary; roving; some hints and suggestions; Fishery Boards for england and Wales; Index to English and Welsh rivers; English and Welsh fishing stations (inc. the Isle of Man); Sea fishing stations in England and Wales; Scottish close seasons; Fishery Boards in Scotland; Index to rivers and lochs of Scotland; fishing stations in Scotland; Faroe Islands; Irish close seasons; Index to rivers and loughs of Ireland; Fishing stations in Ireland (Ulster and the Free State); Fishing stations in Africa; Fishing stations in America (meaning 'in the Americas'); Fishing stations in Asia (from Aden to Hawaii and Fiji); Fishing stations in europe; Fishing stations in Australasia; Fishing clubs in England and Wales; A list of notable fish; British tournament casting records; a list of tackle dealers; Fly and bait casting schools; A list of fish farms; Index to fishing stations in England and Wales; Index to fishing stations in Scotland; Index to fishing stations Ireland; Index to advertisers.
