The Daredevil Book for Anglers
Cunning Strategies That Fish Don't Know About

Anglers can be odd types. Lawyers, bricklayers, bankers and double-glazing salespeople during the week, come the weekend they're up to their wrists in worms, waiting, hoping, waiting some more, hoping again, losing hope, more waiting... But why? The Daredevil Book for Anglers has the answer.
• How to Lie (Caught anything? It's the question every angler dreads)
• The Art of Waiting (Sitting around on a riverbank for hours and hours, watching a float bobbing about a bit, without going stark raving bonkers)
• Yeah, Course Your Son's Desperate to Go Fishing with You (Why forcing the boy to learn to fish makes you a bit of a git).
This is a surreal and funny expose of one of the nation's most popular sports. This wonderful clothbound hardback includes hilarious cartoon illustrations by David Mostyn and makes the perfect gift for angling addicts. They will be instantly hooked!
