This antiquarian volume contains Henry Cholmondeley-Pennell’s 1885 fishing handbook, “Fishing”. Profusely illustrated and full of handy tips and simple instructions, this timeless book constitutes the perfect guide for inexperienced and novice fishermen, and would make for a great addition to collections of vintage sporting literature. Contents include: “Pike and Pike-Tackle”, “Baits, Bait-Catching, etc.”, “Pike Fishing”, “Coarse Fish and Float-Fishing Generally”, “Baits”, “The Perch”, “Carp and Tench”, “Dace and Chub”, “Gudgeon and Bleak”, “Roach Fishing as a Fine Art”, “Norfolk Broad and River Fishing”, etcetera. Many vintage texts such as this, especially those dating back to the 1900s and before, are increasingly hard to come by and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
