The little book of fishing. An anthology.


DKK 125,00

The finest fishing often takes place not on water, but in print. And so it does as this little book will show you. The fourteen selections tell what happended to the author and they tell what it all means, at least to them. They crfeate meorable scens that will engage nonfishermen along with the initiate, and they explore often with pungent wit the absurdities that sometimes gather around any sport with passionate participants. Among the men and women in this fine company of anglers you’ll find a poet, some novelists, a variety of essayists and a major sportswriter.
