Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper.
Illustrated with line drawings. From the cover: “Unlike most books on the subject, this one does not set out to tell the reader how to catch more or bigger fish, although there is unlikely to be anyone who won’t benefit in that direction. What it does is look at what goes to make that special type of human covered by the word ‘angler’. It may also help those unfortunate enough not to fish to understand a little of what the devotees find so fascinating; and, perhaps, even give those who do fish a better understanding of one another. For angling means many things to many followers of the Gentle Art. As a man who has crossed some of the barriers which divide fishermen, the author aims to let those who spend their time with rod in hand look at one another in a different light. Above all, the book spells out the value of the sport in our modern world, the benefits for the participants and the doors it can open. It also sounds a warning note for the future, and suggests ways in which the joys abounding in the pastime could be made more readily available to everyone. Here is a book about angling and anglers by one of those privileged to enjoy the sport and the company of those who share his love of it.”
