Where to Catch Salmon and Trout in England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland

£12.99

Product description

Published by Country Life Ltd, London (1937). Hardback. First edition. Scarce in this condition with all photos and maps present.

FROM THE INTRODUCTION: "This is not intended to be a guide-book except as to particular localities where fishing is to be had with minimum expense and a reasonable hope of success. Salmon fishing is regarded as a rich man's hobby, but there are salmon to be caught by the man of moderate means, if he knows where to find them. It was from this point of view that these notes have been collected and no place has been mentioned of which the author has not some personal knowledge. Many years were spent in trying to discover if there was any real fishing without paying an exorbitant price for it. There is! At the same time, there is no free fishing of any value. If there were, the poacher would attend to it without loss of time, and it would soon be worthless; but there are many waters in the British Isles where fishing, good fishing, may be got, and Wales, in particular, abounds in them. There are so many rivers and so few people to fish them."

CONDITION: Used, very good. Covers very good. Dust jacket is complete and in very good condition. Minor nicks to top edge and with spine. Small stain at top of DJ spine and slightly dirty on rear. Not clipped. Has been covered in clear plastic cover to protect it which can be removed without harm to the book. Text is clean although pages are tanned and have many brown spots to page edges.
