About This Item

(London: Aurum Press, 2002) 1854108700. 8vo; original dark green boards, lettered in gilt on spine; laminated pictorial dustwrapper; pp. vi + 185; colour plates. Dustwrapper a bit rubbed and edgeworn, with a little loss to bottom edge of upper panel; trace of spotting to edges, occasional faint fox spot elsewhere. Very good condition. "Jon Beer writes regular columns for both the Daily Telegraph Weekend section and for Trout and Salmon, Britain's leading game fishing magazine. 'There are,' he writes, 'two sorts of book about trout fishing. One sort has a title like "How to Catch Very Big Trout". This is the other sort of trout fishing book.' In other words, it's a book about fly-fishing that doesn't take itself too seriously and will be rapturously welcomed by all those who fish for pleasure rather than for trophies. ... The great joy of Jon Beer's writing is that he can convey the full flavour of a day's fishing in a way that enables readers to share his relish for the experience and his pleasure in the people he meets and the places he visits - while also passing on some very useful tips in the process, despite his claim that this is not a 'how to' book. This collection will quickly find a permanent place on the bedside table of anglers everywhere." .
