An amusing and light-hearted book about fishing. "A Bull. It sometimes happens that you come upon a bull suddenly and without a moment for thought or plan. Then you must depend on the moral dignity of man, on a haughty brow, a flashing eye. Do not, however, presume on your manifest superiority. Behave as one gentleman to another. If the bull is right-minded he will move slowly away. If not, if he shows a disposition to contest your passage, you must advance upon him, shouting in a great and terrible voice. If this has no effect, you are obviously in a tight place, and there is but one thing to do. Lie down at once and pretend to be dead." Quotation from a letter by the author - "Some (underlined) of it is still amusing - Mr Takingsilk and the Nox Ambrosiana, for instance. With other parts I am not so pleased as I was. "Nos et mutamur", alas! But Studdy's corn is immense - worth the price the publishers ask for the whole book."
