Where the Bright Waters Meet

£29.99

Product description

In the hundreds of books about trout fishing that have been published, only a handful survive for long after their first appearance. For a fishing book to remain in demand over more than a decade is exceptional. Beyond this, a tiny number survive, like trophy salmon, to reach the status of classics. Among these, the most entertaining is "Where the Bright Waters Meet" by Harry Plunket Greene, first published in 1924.
He knew all about holding and delighting an audience; these skills he brings to the magic pages of his book, a wonderful mixture of humour, passion for nature and love of sport which rivals the idyllic descriptions of Izaak Walton himself.
This hardback edition, reprinted from the original which was published in 1924, has a dust jacket which is a little chipped around the edges, closed tears to the spine, the most serious of which is around 3.5 cm long but, apart from minor foxing on the upper edge of the text block it is in delightful condition. All text is clear on clean pages and there are numerous striking b/w photographs throughout.
