A Specimen Fishing Year

A Specimen Fishing Year

by John Wilson

John Wilson started fishing at the age of six and has been an angling fanatic ever since. After trying several other jobs (ranging from merchant navy to running a chain of hairdressing salons in Barbados) he opened his own fishing tackle shop in Norwich.

Although he has always liked sea angling and Scuba diving, his first love has been subtle art of catching freshwater fish; so much so, that he kept a fishing diary for over fifteen years and this book is one typical year from that diary with all the frustration and triumphs that all anglers will know from their own experience.

John Wilson writes about the technical problems involved in specimen fishing - location, the weather, baits, tackle and techniques - but he also writes about the joys and frustrations: the memorable and triumphant days, and the days when absolutely nothing goes right, the good luck and the bad luck which is a lot of all fisherman.

This book is about a year of specimen fishing on the authorís home ground in Norfolk, but anglers everywhere will understand, identify with and learn from his experiences.

The book is fully illustrated with period photographs and line drawings and is 144 pages long

This a limited edition of just 600 copies and are signed by the publisher, Only 25 in full leather.

Publication date: Sep, 2008
Pages: 144
