Halcyon days are recalled for anglers and all lovers of watery ways in this absorbing personal memoir which will appeal to all lovers of the countryside. Jack Bevan shares the joys of his angling successes and humorously relives the disappointments, at the same time as he relishes the diverse natural backdrop of his angling excursions: the peaceful Yorkshire Dales, the magnificent Italian Alps, a sleepy brook in Shropshire or a clear stream in picturesque Dorset. Rather than being a 'how-to-do-it' manual, this is more a lesson in how to make the most of your fishing trips. There is abundant expertise both to help the beginner and satisfy the experienced angler. All of the delights of angling are here, from visiting tackle shops and indulging in flights of fancy about success in the following season to enjoying a river idyll on a wonderful May morning. Jack Bevan, who lives in the West Midlands, is a published poet and translator. His digressions, humorous anecdotes and tributes to the prevailing presence of nature enable the reader to experience to the full the delights of the author's angling past.
