This book presents an encyclopaedia to the inexperienced man who seeks a deatailed and complete guide in the practice of sea fishing. This volume includes contributions on Antipodean and foreign fish by W. Senior, Tarpon by A. C. Harmsworth and Whaling by H. W. Gore-Booth. Originally published in 1895, it is still of great value to anyone interested in the sport or history of the sport. 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.
