From cod to rods, halibut to turbot, this fascinating and unique book takes a whole new angle on angling. Whether you're a stickleback-chaser or a marlin-hunter, you'll soon be hooked on this fascinating catch of fishy notes, quotes, facts and stats. Don't let this one get away. 'The Fishing Companion' doesn't just contain fascinating snippels of information on fish; it also offers extracts from some of the finest writing from the human world. Alan Sillitoe casts a line with Thoreau, while Hemingway wades in with Aristotle. And like all other books in the Companion series, there's a great piece of statistical trivia to match each page number.
