From the Dingle to Costa Rica, from Orkney to Bermuda to Far East Russia, Clive Gammon's stories of angling off the beaten track never fail to enthral and amuse. This collection from one of the best angling writers of the last half century is beautifully illustrated by John Richardson. A perfect gift . . . 'Those phrase books you buy when you go abroad do not include the things that really matter . . . What I needed was the Angler's Universal Dictionary and Phrase Book . . . with such essentials as : 'Oh, Mustapha / Olav / Miguel, why have you wrenched the handle from my 4/0 reel?' And, 'No, I do not wish to pay 45 extra for the shark bait.' And, 'Why are the naval police preparing to arrest me?' All three would have saved a lot of trouble . . . Especially the last one, when a small, round sailor, owner of one of the most malicious faces I have ever seen, danced up and down in a paroxysm of rage, right there on the hotel jetty, inviting me by unmistakable gesture to accompany him to his jeep . . .' Reviews: '. . . fresh, unpretentious and captivating . . . I enjoyed every line . . . 'The Great Big Snook with the Faraway Look' [is] simply one of the best, chuckle-rich fishing stories I have ever read . . . A brilliant book from one of our best angling story-tellers, beautifully published in hardback . . . unreservedly recommended.' - Charles Rangeley-Wilson, The Field

Also available by Clive Gammon: Hook, Line and Spinner.
