Item description for ROD & LINE IN AND AROUND GLOUCESTERSHIRE - HOW, WHEN AND WHERE TO FISH (HISTORY OF FISHING AND ANGLING SERIES) (History of Fishing and Angling) by "Tight Lines"...
An interesting and scarce fishing title first published in the 1930's. The book deals mainly with coarse fish angling methods on waters in, and local to, Gloucestershire, including the Avon, Severn, Wye, Leadon, and the Sharpness Canal. The author's expert advice would, however, also be applicable to similar waters throughout Britain.
READ COUNTRY BOOKS has now republished this fascinating book, using the original text and black and white illustrations, as part of their HISTORY OF FISHING series.
The book's 48 pages offer many tips on catching coarse fish, including eels and flounders, in its 13 chapters. Special mention is also given to dry fly techniques for trout. It can be recommended for a place on all keen fishermen's bookshelves.
Many of the earliest sporting books, particularly those dating back to the 1800s, are now extremely scarce and very expensive. READ COUNTRY BOOKS are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
