An anthology of new work by established writers and talented newcomers, all drawn together by an enthusiasm for fishing. Edited by Dexter Petley and with a Foreword by Chris Yates.
The diversity of styles and imaginations reflects the breadth of the subject – from criminal gangs dealing stolen carp in East London to the aesthetics of the perfect rough-stream trout fly. These are the writings of novelists, poets, craftsmen of two worlds – their skills with hook and line matched by their ability to land the perfect word. They are: John Andrews, John Galligan, Andrew Greig, Colin Higgins, David Knowles, Chris McCully, Dexter Petley, David Profumo, William Wyatt.
