The Little Book of Fishing brings quotes, thoughts and theories on this captivating pastime together in an collection of witticisms and observations.

The duel between fish and man and their unspoken bond...

Approximately 71% of Earth is covered by water, and since time immemorial, man has been using a rod and line to fish in rivers, lakes and the ocean.

Perhaps it is the mystery of what might happen on each fishing trip that captivates so many and, whether successful or not, ensures they return again and again to test their skills and try to outwit the fish. But there is tremendous respect from those who sit on riverbanks, lakesides or on the ocean. Catching the fish is the actual sport, but it is the challenge and skill that keeps anglers coming back for more.

There are also numerous benefits for mind and body, outlined by some of the greatest thinkers in history, not to mention the peace, tranquillity and connection with nature that are arguably as important as the act of catching a fish itself.

The Little Book of Fishing will, for the first time, bring quotes, thoughts and theories on this captivating pastime together in an unforgettable collection of witticisms and observations.
