Pulling Against Fish

Pulling Against Fish

by Leighton McDonnell

Leighton McDonnell is a well known contributor to the angling press and a highly respected angler. I am delighted to announce that The Little Egret Press will be shortly publishing his latest book entitled Pulling Against Fish.

The Dust Jacket features a wonderful painting of a large Perch chasing a lure by the hugely talented Robin Armstrong who generously granted me permission to use what is one of my favourite paintings ever.

Without a doubt he is one of the most successful Winter chub anglers on the Buckinghamshire Ouse in recent years for seven pounders and with fish over 8 pounds, he has developed a unique fishing style and in particular an exploration of baits that will probably replace the age old arguments of protein attraction. With recent discoveries in taste and stomach receptors linked with proven knowledge of protein reactions that can be used for some very effective and instant baits, there can be very few anglers currently balancing the best combinations of glutamate, inosinate and guanylate for that fifth taste kick.This book explains it all.

Leighton readily admits this might not be a book that will show you how to tie a knot, but if you want to know how to locate and then proceed to catch a 5 pound river perch using an old rusty dowsing rod, hear stories of poltergeists draining your digital camera battery at dawn next to an isolated mullet pool in rural Hampshire and beaches harbouring secret (and still amazingly very productive) bass hotspots described by long dead but famous anglers, as well as enjoy, like the author, creeping quietly about at dusk, dawn and night and then tying some very fancy trout flies for the day, this might just be your book.

Limited to only 300 numbered hardback copies and only 5 Quarter leather and 5 Luxury Full Leather editions (both sold with signed bookplate and handmade slipcase)

This new book features a host of full colour images of some of the stupendous fish that Leighton has captured including huge Perch, Chub, Barbel and Pike.........
