'I do not complain at being able to sit in a quiet green place with so much beauty around me, with never a dull moment the whole day through; birds to watch, dragon-flies, insects of all kinds; the change of sky, and sun, and shadow; the delightful riverside smells, the grasses and the flowers. Why should I complain It gives me the keenest delight to observe this world in which I find myself.' "BB" is without doubt, one of the finest writers and illustrators of angling literature. Here he recalls some inspirational fishing expeditions, from night fishing for carp to salmon fishing in the Scottish borders, and fishing with his 'fellow carp addict of the magic hat' Richard Walker. Along the way he discusses the relative merits of float and fly fishing, and of canal and river fishing, the tackle used, his memories of boyhood, including holidays in Pembrokeshire, and muses on the reasons why we fish at all. Originally published in 1949 under the name of Michael Traherne, this beautifully written and illustrated book is thought by many to be "BB"s finest work.
