Author(s): Kevin Ireland
This fine, funny, beautiful book should be on the shelf of every fisherman - and woman - and their long-suffering friends and family. If you think fishing is a simple matter of casting off from a river bank with rod and reel, or dropping a hook and line over the isde of a dinghy, you're in for a shock. For award-winning writer and poet Kevin Ireland, fishing - especially for the elusive trout - is not an idle pastime. It's a passionate love affair with the natural world.
Since getting hooked as a boy, Kevin Ireland has punted on wild Irish lakes, clambered over medieval abbeys, trawled through old texts, and spent several thousand hours actually fishing. This book, he says, is the sum total of all he now knows, or will ever know about catching a fish.
Kevin Ireland has won numerous awards, and is rated by his peers and critics as a top-notch fishing writer.
