Details

"Mr. Richards has asked me to write for him a hand book of the latest practical methods of sea-angling for sport, and without any of the usual prefatory apology, praise of this particular branch of fishing, description of the scenery, the birds, the fisherfolk, such as come in so handy to make a book "pan out" over a given number of pages. [This] relieves me of the necessity of drawing on a literary style of doubtful quality, and enables me to plunge forthwith into the purely practical aspect of my subject." A forthright and well-informed read, as ever with Aflalo. Chapters include; The fish; The tackle; The baits; How to fish; When to fish; Where to fish.
