Originally published in 1851 this early work on Fish and Fishing...is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. This is a fascinating read for any Angling enthusiast or historian, but also contains much information that is still useful and practical today, Chapters include; The Salmon family, The Pike family, The Carp family and many more. It will prove of much interest to the Angler. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original artwork and text.
