A complete reprint of the 1893 (first) edition, long since out of print - including all of the original advertisements. It first appeared in 1892 as a series of articles in "The Fishing Gazette" and was then published separately.
A first edition copy of this book was left to me by my father, Ray Watson - on his death in 2008. A keen angler for many years, he used the book on his extensive fishing trips around the county of his birth despite it being more than half a century since its publication. Rather tatty and well thumbed with its binding falling apart it seemed an ideal opportunity to scan its contents for re-printing prior to having to original rebound.
I have designed a new cover as the original was too badly damaged and I trust that you feel that it is in keeping with the period.
I hope you enjoy its contents to the same degree as my father did...
If ordering directly from blurb.com the map is not included please send your postal address to me by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will mail one out to you. It's folded and pasted into the back cover.
