Additional Information


"Negley Farson was a great journalist and foreign correspondent for the Chicago Daily News in the Twenties and Thirties. And wherever he went, he would always take his fishing rod with him. His latter years, after a fantastic globe-trotting life, were spent in Devon. Going Fishing was first published in 1942 and is indeed a classic. In addition to the complete text of Going Fishing, this edition includes most of chapter IX of Farson's Last Chance in Africa (1949) on his experiences of trout fishing during the Mau Mau troubles in Kenya. The book also contains 26 black and white illustrations by C. F. Tunnicliffe."
