"Falkus and Buller's Freshwater Fishing is a classic: a book which no one with an intelligent interest in angling can afford to be without ... A book of tackle and techniques, with some notes on various fishes; fish recipes; fishing safety and other sundry matters." An encyclopaedic work encompassing all aspects of British freshwater fishing. The authors' passion for research, their love of angling, even their avowed interest in the culinary qualities of their catch, seem to me a healthier approach to the subject than that of many writers of today, whose over-emphasis on technical and conservation aspects seem to take much of the excitement and spontaneity of fishing. Part I covers fishes, Part II rigs, tackles and methods of capture, with some reference to American ideas. A truly superb book and one that most definitely warrants a place on every angler's bookshelf. "If there was one book worthy of the term 'the angler's bible', this is it." (David Profumo). "One of the greatest fishing books of all time." (In-Fisherman).
