Description


This antiquarian text contains a detailed discourse on fish and fishing, with information on catching carp, bream, salmon, dace, and many other common fish. Complete with a wealth of useful, practical information, interesting and informative anecdotes, and a plethora of detailed illustrations, this volume will be of significant utility to the modern angler, and would make for a worthy addition to collections of allied literature. The chapters of this book include: 'The Conference Betwixt an Angler, a Falconer, and a Hunter, Each Commending his Recreation'; 'On the Otter and the Chub'; 'How to Fish for, and to Dress, The Chavender or Chub'; 'On the Nature and Breeding of the Trout, and How to Fish for Him'; 'On the Trout', et cetera. We are republishing this volume now complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on the history of fishing.
