For this selective bibliography he has chosen 230 of what he considers the most interesting titles and arranged them by country and publication date. All titles are illustrated. 248 pgs.

Description

What makes the book a real pleasure is the knowledge he brings to bear not only as a bookman, but also as a reader and a fisherman. He knows the rivers; in many cases he knows the people who fished them and wrote the books. And he knows what qualifies as quality, whether it is an elusive and fugitive mimeographed account of an excursion to a Norwegian river or a deluxe full leather quarto containing an original salmon fly. So this is no dry, pedantic list of famous books, but rather a fascinating and illuminating journey into a world of piscatorial lore, adventure, and description.
