1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fisherman only become bores when they are bragging about their big fish. But this collection of essays shows their other side. When fishermen talk about their losses, they show a much more interesting side, and here a collection of famous or important writers all contribute an essay which in many cases becomes more than an account of a lost fish which has haunted them all their lives; it sheds light on the nature of loss itself, and how the human spirit endures it

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 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
