Originally published in 1935, this is a lengthy and wonderful anthology of pieces of writing about fish, fishing, fisherman and the whole joyful, painful experience of the angling life. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Hesperides Press are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork. Contents Include: Fishermen's Birds Fishermen's Flowers Fishermen's Flies Fishermen's Weeds The Fishermen's Inn Cooking Useful Knowledge The Law Hints and Recipes Thoughts Boat and Coracle Management An Angler's Anthology Terms Employed in Game Fishing A Glossary of Coarse Fishing Terms A Sea Fishing Glossary Some Names of Fresh Water Fish Angling Writers and Their Works Fishermen's Noms De Plume A Short "Who's Who" of Anglers and Fly-Dressers British Angling Periodicals A Dictionary of Angling Terms.
