GOING FISHING by Negley Farson


Email this review


The perfect book for the man (or woman) fisherman to whom even reading about it is good escape. It is not a book of fishing adventures in the Zane Grey school, but a book of quiet delight that is the singular province of addicts of Isaac Walton. From surf casting on the Jersey coast as a boy to fishing experiences in four continents, -- flyfishing the headwaters of the Kuban in the upper Caucasus, casting for Rainbow trout in South Chile, fishing for striped bass, for small mouth and large mouth bass, fishing for necessary food in British Columbia, in Vancouver, salmon fishing in Scotland and in the Shetlands, fishing with the Serbs on the Danube, stream fishing in the West Coast country of England, joining forces with village fishing clubs in rural France, adventures in Norway, in Yugoslavia, in Ireland -- a far flung sport, with every opportunity of a varied background made the most of.
