WAYS OF FISHING: TROUT, SEATROUT AND SALMON. By Sidney Spencer.

1972 1st edition. 8vo (140 x 222mm). Pp224. Colour photographs, b/w illustrations, introduction by Eric Linklater. Red boards, spine titled in gilt.

In this book Spencer takes a more instructional approach to salmon, sea-trout and trout fishing. "His book - and this I emphasize - is most enjoyable, truly good, and so widely instructive that it leaves me with a deep sense of guilt: why, for example, in my long life, have I failed to acquire the delicate art of up-stream worming? The answer is, of course, that Mr. Spencer didn't write his book in time. If he had written it fifty years ago, I would be a better fisherman - even, perhaps, a better man - than I am today." (From the introduction by Eric Linklater). Chapters include: Tackle and where to use it; Seatrout and the Loch Ordie; Rocks and moonlight; March day; Judging, handling, packing and storage of fish; Rain; The Donegal Blue; After the storm; At random from a fishing diary; Covering the water; 'There was a kind of rage on thim'; The finest moment in salmon fishing; Fishing river mouths; According to Michael; Upstream worming in perspective; Rods and tackle; Hooks; Baits and baiting; When and where to fish; How to fish; Bites and their interpretation; Approaching the water - wading - concealment; On being a fisherman.
