This is a special boxed leather edition, limited to just 12 copies, and published by E, Z and D Verlag, Switzerland. Each copy is numbered 1 to 12 and signed by the author.
Angles on Fishing is a book of inspiration for the thinking fisherman. It explores many of the topical issues at the heart of sport angling today, but in a light, intelligible and often humorous way.
What is the threat to angling posed by animal rights arguments; what have ethics to do with angling; is there a distinction between recreational and subsistence fishing, and does it matter? – all these subjects and many more are raised in a book which is full of beautiful and surprising illustrations, apposite poetry and quirky humour.
A far cry from the practical ‘how to’ angling books, this is both a wake-up call for those who complacently believe that fishing is safe and a celebration of all that is colourful and rich in the world of sport fishing.
