The Anglers Encyclopaedia - Colin Willock

Odhams, 1961, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good - in Good+ DJ. DJ slightly ruffled at the edges. Gently bruised at head & tail of spine and corners. Edges of the textblock lightly tanned.

Illustrated with B&W photographs and diagrams. From the author’s preface: “In a long, long history of angling books this is the first A-Z encyclopaedia that embraces coarse, sea, game, and big-game fishing. In compiling it I have had two thoughts uppermost. (1) To keep it simple. (2) To remember that anglers do not want merely to know about fish; they want to know how to catch them. Now about the encyclopaedia’s use in helping the angler to catch fish. Wherever a species occurs which can be said to demand a special angling technique or techniques, it receives double treatment. Barbel, for example, is followed by Barbel-Fishing, Bass by Bass-Fishing, and so on.”
