Catch & Release

WAS £9.99 £4.99

Product description

Published 2004.

Slight wear and marks to cover. Some creasing to corner of a few pages.

The family joke was that Mark Kingswell would skip 'The Weekend' - two days of fishing with his father and two brothers. Fishing is stupid, Kingswell believed, scarred by his earlier, dismal experiences with the sport. Over the course of a weekend, he comes to understand fly-fishing's appeal, learning it's not just about the fish. A celebration of male companionship and the one that got away, 'Catch & Release' is a wonderful slice of life filled with touching, amusing anecdotes from an unlikely angler.
