4th edition. [First Edition: 1940] Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “CARTER PLATTS’ fishing books are notable no less for their humour than for their sound instruction — a perfect combination of qualities in the writing of a book for beginners in angling. Here he tells the young angler everything he needs to know about the gentle craft, writing so attractively that the book is likely to make many new anglers. His work is in three sections, dealing with the three groups of British angling — game fishing (which includes salmon, trout, sea trout, and grayling), coarse fishing (which covers the rest of the fresh-water fish), and sea fishing. In each section he has chapters on equipment, technique, bait, and the methods of approach to the different fish. This new edition has been extensively revised by David Jacques.”
