The moods range from the rollicking humour of Rudyard Kipling's "On Dry-Cow Fishing as a Fine Art" and the rural gothic of Annie Proulx's "The Wer-Trout" to the haunting elegy of Norman Maclean's "A River Runs Through It." Many of these tales celebrate human bonds forged over a rod, including Guy de Maupass...

ENGLISH ALLSORTS

Hardback
by PETER ASHLEY
"Open this book with reverence. It is a hymn to England - the old England, the England of beach huts and Constable skies." (Clive Aslet).
