The New Complete Angler explains the habits and strategies of each freshwater fish and the ingenious methods required to lure them to you. The author discusses the lives of the sporting chub, the weed-loving reclusive tench, the voracious pike, the repulsive wels, the biting trout, the leaping salmon, and shoals more.

He describes, with numerous fascinating asides and enchanting diversions, the etymology of their names and their evolutionary descent. The author's knowledgeable yet humorous text is complemented by the outstanding illustrations created especially for this book.

The New Complete Angler is an excellent addition to your vintage fishing collection or home library.


The New Complete Angler is in good shape for its age, with no rips or tears.
