“A Handbook of Angling” contains a detailed, illustrated guide to fishing, covering fly-fishing, trolling, bottom-fishing, salmon-fishing, and more. Accessible and beginner-friendly, it is essentially a guide to the natural history of river fish and the best ways to catch them, and sure to be of utility to anglers new and old. Contents include: “Angling Defined”, “Divided into Three Branches”, “Into Fly-fishing, Trolling, and Bottom-Fishing”, “Each Briefly Described”, The Superiority and Merits of Fly-fishing”, “Throwing the Line and Flies”, “Humouring Them”, “Fishing a Stream”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with that in mind that we are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on the history of fishing.
