The Determined Angler and the Brook Trout, By Charles Barker Bradford. This delightful book was first published in the U.S.A. in 1900 and is now extremely scarce in its original edition. READ COUNTRY BOOKS have now re-published it using the text and illustrations from the first edition. The author was a well known fisherman and a prolific sporting writer who contributed many articles to the American field sports press of that era. This book is a collection of some of the best of these. Its 72 pages contain chapters on:- Fly Fishing for Trout. – Trout Truths. – Trout and Trouting. – Trouting in Canadensis Valley. – In the Pocono Mountains. – The Trouter's Outfit. – Little Casts. (trouting tips). – Tackle Talks. – Borrowed Thoughts. Etc. All of these are illustrated by full page black and white illustrations and photos and a number of small pen and ink sketches. This early fishing book can be recommended for inclusion in the library of all dedicated anglers. "A little pocket volume containing several descriptions of a fly fisher's paradise, and a few practical suggestions for the young angler." Many of the earliest sporting books, particularly those dating back to the 1800s, are now extremely scarce and very expensive. READ COUNTRY BOOKS are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.

Grace, Truth and Beauty…

 on 20 March 2014
By Ibn Battuta
Five stars for this wonderful work. It is a collection of some of the most thoughtful and romantic thoughts concerning the piscatorial arts. Yes it is dominated by the north American trout scene. But that does not detract in any way from both its usefulness or textual breadth. I wholeheartedly recommend this book for those who like to wallow in nature and classic sentiment. Will it help you to catch more fish? I should jolly well hope not! But it’s full of enough Grace, Truth and Beauty to put all our fishing days (good, bad and indifferent) into perspective!

It ‘s one of those books that you pick up and get lost in ( so long as you are interested in trout fishing)with a nice glass of whisky.
