A TAUPO SEASON: A BEDSIDE BOOK FOR TROUT FISHERMEN. By John Parsons.

1979 1st edition. 8vo (142 x 219mm). Ppxii,227. Colour photograph plates. Olive-green boards, spine titled in gilt.

Eighty-five well-written pieces on almost as many trout fishing topics - great fishing personalities, the restoration of lakes, tackle catalogues, sublunarism and astrology as debatable factors in success, the improvement of casting techniques, the wickedness of willows, taxidermy, trout psychology, fishermen's lib, local and international fishing literature - the list goes on. Written and set mostly in the Lake Taupo area. "This is a fireside, bedside book for those men and women who love to fish for trout, who love to read of fishing for trout, who love to think and talk of fishing for trout, and who habitually ponder the innumerable facets of fishing for trout. ...Though intended as a book to be dipped into for relaxed reading, much of it gives food for serious thought. Not all fishermen will agree with every one of John Parson's conclusions, but this is one of the charms of his approach: he puts his point of view in terms that set one thinking - and what can be more pleasant than thinking about fishing for trout?"
