The loch fisher's bible

£25.00

Product description

Scotland is a country amply endowed with water. Most of this water takes the form of lochs and, until comparatively recently, almost every one of these lochs contained wild brown trout. Where the "toff" had his salmon, the fishing of wild brown trout has been the heritage of the common man for generations. Out of this legacy has come the art form which we call traditional or simply "loch style" fly fishing. In The Loch Fisher's Bible, Stan Headley has succeeded in bringing this ancient and venerable practice up to date and, in doing so, has debunked and demystified loch fishing in particular and fly fishing in general. He has replaced myth, fable and fairy story with science, technology and understanding. The author has always maintained that a thinking angler is a successful angler and the purpose of these pages is not simply to inform but, more importantly, to encourage enlightened thought on a fascinating subject - wild trout and how to catch them. Now, armed with this unique book, both novice and experienced fly fisher alike will have a far greater understanding of fish behaviour and successful fishing technique. Published 2005.

Most of the second-hand items you see online have been donated, by supporters like you, to our high street stores. Each item is then priced, photographed and listed on this site by our amazing team of volunteers from across the country.

After you have bought your item, our team of volunteers package and dispatch it from the Shop straight to you or your chosen recipient.

All profits from the sales of our goods go towards funding Oxfam's work around the world. We rely on your donations to sell online so please keep the cycle of goodness going!

Oxfam Bookshop Hertford

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller, but it doesn't stop there. We sell a great range of donated music as well. Whether it's vintage LPs or the latest modern fiction you want, we're well worth a look! We also offer a range of greetings cards for birthday and other occasions. Call us to find out more.

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
