Bruce Pocklington's book is a general introduction to coarse angling, with much good advice as well as anecdotes from the in mind; that ill-defined group of anglers who are neither match men nor specialists of any kind, though they too, may find it of interest... There being so little new under the angler's sun, I'll break no new ground here, shake none of angling's foundations. Yet, there may be a hint, a snippet or two, a notion or concept and value still new to you, for those among you not so arrogant to learn, not too complacent or too hidebound to accept another view. You see, this book stems from my experiences, my conclusions, my theories and, yes, my emotions. Yours, more than likely, author's introduction). Chapters include: Then and now; The way things are; Tackling up for coarse fishing; Groundbait, feed and additives; Bait presentation; Float fishing techniques; A look at legering; The quarry; Rod, pole or perch; The one that got away; Shadows on the lake; The stream of life.
