DROP ME A LINE: BEING LETTERS EXCHANGED ON TROUT AND COARSE FISHING. By Maurice Ingham and Richard Walker. 1989 third edition.

(1953) 1989 3rd edition. 8vo (145 x 223mm). Ppviii,295. Line illustrations by the authors. Black boards, spine titled in gilt.

An exchange of letters between Richard Walker and Maurice Ingham. Primarily concerning carp fishing, with much on the Carp Catchers' Club, but with a great deal also on other aspects of angling such as fly-tying, rod building, fly casting, net construction etc. "Nowadays, carp weighing upwards of 20lb or more are caught so often that the modern angler may think that fish of the size Maurice and I were catching in 1950 small fry. Remember that in those days, fewer than a dozen carp over 10lb in weight were caught in an average season in the whole of Britain. The deliberate pursuit of big fish, now regarded as a commonplace branch of angling, was then almost unheard of; Maurice and I were groping our way out of the dark." (Richard Walker). An enduring classic and one of the key books in any coarse angling library.
