Description

Sir Ian Botham, best known as one of cricket's true greats, is also a fisherman of knowledge & passion. In this book he shares his love of the sea & the riverbank—from the hours of concentration casting for salmon or trout in quiet pools with only his Jack Russell for company, to the adrenalin surging moments when the arm-wrenching force of a 1,000-lb. Blue Marlin hits the line. As a cricket commentator he travels the world & at each stop he is able to slip away & try his hand at whatever local fishing delights are to be found. The result is a wide experience of fish & fishing from every corner of the globe. Packed with anecdotes & stories, this book also includes instructions & diagrams, compendia of equipment & bait, sections on Botham's favorite rivers & how to fish them, & guides to everything from the life cycle of a game fish to the particular intricacies of Spey casting. Threaded throughout are the author's own experiences, both in Britain & around the world, & the book is illustrated with many of his own personal photographs.
