Overview

Clouds of mist rising from a deserted river in the early morning... sparkling water and a distant angler casting in the afternoon sunlight... the excitement of the day's first bite... fresh-water fishing provides the opportunity for both contemplation and excitement, the angler pitting his wits against his quarry in the midst of a beautiful natural landscape.

Tales from the River Bank examines the art of fishing from a fresh perspective. In this book, and the BBC TV series which it accompanies, John Bailey shows how, with a greater understanding of the behaviour and biological make-up of different types of fish, it is possible to become a more intuitive and successful angler. Concentrating on Britain's major freshwater fish: barbel, chub, trout, carp, salmon, eel, pike, tench, rudd, roach and grayling... each chapter focuses on the habits of a particular species and provides practical advice and tricks of the trade based directly on the author's own experience. There is also a selection of information boxes which offer guidance on all aspects of angling, from choosing the correct tackle and baits to proven techniques for catching elusive fish.

Tales from the River Bank will inspire both the would-be and practising angler, Fully illustrated with over 80 glorious color photographs taken by the author, this book provides a valuable insight into one of the most traditional and yet mysterious of British pastimes.
