My First Day Fishing

14th April 2024

Soon to be published by Magic Cat, Will Millard’s My First Day Fishing lays out everything a young angler needs to know as they set out in pursuit of their first fish — from tackle to ties, rods to rigs, and from knots to hooks to baits, lures and flies. It also includes a fish-identification guide, together with advice on how to care for your catch. 

Will’s words are accompanied by beautiful illustrations from Joanna Lisowiec. Get a sneak preview inside the book below.


‘My First Day Fishing: An Angler’s Almanac’ is published on 9th May. Pre-order a copy here (£14.24).
