FALKUS and BULLER'S FRESHWATER FISHING. A book of tackles and techniques, with some notes on various fish, fish recipes, fishing safety and sundry other matters. By Fred Buller and Hugh Falkus. Second edition.
(1975) 1988 2nd edition, revised - hardback issue. 4to (190 x 247mm). Pp525. Colour plates, b/w photographs and illustrations. Blue cloth, spine titled in book which no one with an intelligent interest in angling can afford to be without. A book of tackle and techniques, with some notes on various fishes; fish recipes; fishing safety and other sundry matters". An encyclopaedic work encompassing all aspects of British freshwater fishing. The authors' passion for research, their love of angling, even their avowed interest in the culinary qualities of their catch, seem to me a healthier approach to the subject than that of many writers of today, whose over-emphasis on technical and conservation aspects seem to take much of the excitement and spontaneity of fishing. Part I covers fishes, Part II rigs, tackles and methods of capture, with some reference to American ideas.
