A year of trout fishing in streams and rivers around England. Glaven and Bure in the East, Nadder, Kennet and Avon in the South, Lyd, Wolf, Carey and Barle in the West, the Derbyshire Wye and Derwent, and Wharfe, Eden, Tweed and Till in the North. "Travels with a Two Piece is a collection of writing by John Bailey, composed whilst he journeyed through England during the summer of 1984. He fished many rivers and travelled with an ancient two piece fly fishing rod which was given to him by the son of a veteran from World War One who had used it in France whilst on leave from the trenches. ...In this book, John Bailey relates his many efforts, not always successful, to outwit the most cunning native trout and grayling. He flavours his tales with keen observations drawn from life in and around the rivers themselves. And throughout can be found his unique philosophy towards fishing and conservation... Encyclopaedic in its richness, this is a book about wild trout, sea trout, grayling, seals, badgers, otters, herons, fishermen, river keepers and - above all - one man's struggle with his sport." Well written and complemented by attractive black and white illustrations by Chris Turnbull.
