Promotional Information

A lifetime's fishing experiences written by one of the UK's leading fly fishermen. Brian Clarke is one of Britain's best-known fly-fishermen -- and one of the world's most widely-read angling authors. His monthly column for 'The Times' has become an institution. His widely-ranging, penetrating and often provocative articles for that newspaper and for 'The Sunday Times' have been required reading for serious fishermen for over 30 years. This collection of 71 articles and new essays distils the author's lifetime experience. The ground he covers is immense: fish and how they behave, tackle and how to choose and use it, flyfishing tactics and strategies, angling history and literature, issues and personalities, environmental threats and the future. The whole book carries the authority of Brian's pioneering work in the sport -- and of his groundbreaking studies of trout behaviour, especially. It is informative, thought-provoking, entertaining and beautifully written. 'On Fishing' will help anyone who fishes for anything to understand more, to think more and to catch more. It will draw even non-anglers down into the world under water -- and to the fascinations that fishermen find there. / Brian Clarke is the leading fly fishing writer in the UK / Fly fishing is one of the UK's major growth sports / Book will be promoted through the The Times sports pages
