MY FISHING DAYS AND FISHING WAYS: BEING A RECORD OF EXPERIENCES GATHERED DURING FORTY-SIX YEARS OF AN ANGLER'S LIFE WHILE FISHING FOR SO-CALLED COARSE FISHES IN THE WATERS AND STREAMS OF SIXTEEN COUNTIES AND TWENTY-FIVE RIVERS. By J.W. Martin.

1906 1st edition. Small 8vo (127 x 196mm). Ppxvi,190. B/w photograph plates, text illustrations, end-paper advertisements for J.W. Martin's fishing tackle and books. Green cloth, spine titled in gilt, upper board titled in black with image of a chub rising to a fly.

"This volume does not pretend to be a guide to fishing, in the ordinary cut-and-dried sense of the term; but in its pages I take you into my confidence, and talk to you as one old fisherman talks to his mates, telling you what I saw on the various waters, the fish I found, how I succeeded and how I failed. This book is a plain statement of fact and personal experiences, the pages of which furnish glimpses of natural history, descriptions of the waters and their characteristics, scenery and surroundings, together with a few historical notes connected therewith, which will perhaps have more than a passing interest for the wandering angler." Chapters include: Introductory remarks; The roach fisherman of the Fens; Bush fishing for perch (on the banks of the Witham); Trouting in a tiny brook (the Nottinghamshire Greet); A winter's day down the Lower Trent; The Lower Trent (piscatorially and historically considered); A Christmas dish (winter chub fishing); A New Year's bag (thoughts and experiences on the Great Ouse); Days among the barbel (on the Trent, Thames, and Kennet); With the chub, and a fly rod; Eddy and stream (cadbaits and wasp-grubs in the early summer); Pikey days and pikey ways; The postman's knock - dibbling with insects, alive and dead; Days and nights with the bream; By lake and mere; Concerning roach; A mixed basket.
