A bounty of fishing adventures from the best writers of the twentieth century.
“Fishing seems to be the sport of choice for good writers… These stories are the pick of the catch.”
“Guaranteed to give the ardent fly fisherman many hours of reading.”
“The finest stories about fishing ever written.”
There is the solitary sportsman casting in a trout river, the adventurer looking for sport on the ocean and a group of young boys with bamboo poles and hopes of landing the big one. The scenery is as varied as the catch and the stories capture an angler’s passion for the sport, as well as its humour, romance and friendship.
It is not only stories of the one that got away that make for great fishing tales, and you will find the best fishing stories in this collection.
