Many humorous fishing stories. "Are all fishermen liars or do all liars fish? To counter such mischievous and accusatory questions, Billee Chapman Pincher has gathered together a selection of true and yet highly unusual fishing stories that were told to her by anglers of unquestionable repute. Every tale within these pages has happened to a varied selection of folk, ranging from the famous to the obscure - but all with the common link of rod and line." Chapters include:- Titanic battle; The unfair sex? Nature watch; Lucky fishers; The big ones; Long odds; Total immersion and other embarrassments; Confessions; No rules; Tales of the unexpected; Tales from distant venues; Of nets and other paraphernalia; Ghillies' stories; Unlucky fish; Eccentrics; Fishing dogs; Political aspects; Smoked fish; Swords and the unexpected.
