A good detailed approach to coarse fishing on fast and slow rivers along with lakes, drains and canals. "It is not so much different kinds of fish which require different methods as different kinds of water. So in the following pages I have tried to approach this old subject from a slightly new angle. Instead of following the usual method of explaining how to angle for one or another species of fish, I have endeavoured to suggest how different types of water can best be fished." (From the author's preface).
