I said to my wife "If you're going to the Library, see if you can find me a new book on sea angling".
She came back with this one - 'The River Cottage Sea Fishing Handbook', by the appropriately named Nick Fisher. I flicked through it and immediately knew I had to own a copy.
It's a classic - an absolute gem. Nick writes in a clear and engaging conversational manner, and he knows what he's talking about.
It's the sort of book that you'll pick up and read, not just for the knowledge contained with its pages (although there's loads of that, as you can see from the list of contents below), but for the sheer pleasure to be gained from a well written and nicely illustrated book.
It's a book that will appeal not just to the avid saltwater fisherman, but doubly so to those who like to eat what they catch.
As Nick readily confesses "It's the end game - the cooking and eating of fish - that interests me just as much as the hooking, playing and netting part".
