THELWELL'S COMPLEAT TANGLER: BEING A PICTORIAL DISCOURSE OF ANGLERS AND ANGLING. By Norman Thelwell.

(1967) 1972 new edition. Small 8vo paperback (125 x 190mm). Pp128. B/w cartoon illustrations throughout.

A collection of Thelwell's famous humorous angling illustrations. "Why do more men go fishing every weekend in Britain than go to football matches or any other sport? What do they really get up to when they abandon a warm bed before the crack of dawn, stuff a haversack with tins of assorted maggots, half a hundredweight of pulped bread and a folding campstool, and disappear into the drizzle? It is estimated that well over one and a half million wives wish they knew the answer. It was clearly time that some sort of enquiry was made into the strange rituals of the cult, and it secrets exposed to the public gaze. After years of crawling through wet grass and conducting lonely vigils in distant torrents. Thelwell has at last presented his report."
