I bought this for my great uncle, who in his younger days was a keen angler and still loves to talk of ‘the ones that got away’. Sadly, he has dementia, and is failing fast. This book has brought him, and others, a lot of pleasure, during visits. Its served as a therapeutic tool “something different to focus on” as well as assisting him to recall, and share, pleasurable memories of his travels, and fishing exploits. Worth every penny. Recommended whole heartedly.

Recommended funny and interesting read for fishermen and non fishermen alike 🙂

Really enjoyed these short stories. If you’re a fisherman you should love this book. If not a fisherman then it may just give you that push to have a go and make stories of your own 🙂

I have glanced through this book and some of the stories are really funny ( although some may be more than just a little bit exaggerated). I bought this as a novelty / joke gift for an up-coming birthday.

A nice collection of varied stories including one about two policemen who went to dig up wasp’s nests to collect larvae for bait and were trapped in a mud slide, with only their heads above the surface, and stung to death by whe wasps. Well worth a read.

Great Buy!

I got this product as a gift for my Granda who is very much into fishing and he totally loved it. It is made up of short stories and he said it was very interesting and made for easy reading. He has recommended it to other fishermen friends and has not stopped bragging about it. He could not put it down but he said it was great that you didn’t need to get to the end of a chapter before you could put it down.

If you enjoy unusual stories or you are just a plain fishing fanatic you will like this book. Many of the stories have an amusing twist to them whilst others are rather amazing accounts of peoples experiences of wherever they happened to be fishing at the time.

Better than expected

Always hard to buy books for fisherman. These short stories provide a variety of strange tales that most anglers would find interesting.
