Anglers feel instinctively that their sport is not cruel. This book explains why their instincts are right - and exposes the confused philosophy of their accusers.'

The anti-fieldsports lobby has led the debate on hunting, fishing and shooting for the last decade. Hook, Line and Thinker is a book which turns the tables on the 'antis' and takes a fresh look at the assumptions which many now accept as facts.

  • What is mean't by cruelty?
  • How do you measure pain?
  • Who says man is an animal, and that all animals are equal?
  • Is man a fish without scales, or is he something different?
  • If catching and releasing a fish is cruel, then how cruel is eating one?
  • When fieldsports have been banned, will we be asked to become vegetarians too?
  • Where does religion fit in with fieldsports?
  • How can one justify keeping a pet cat, which tortures before it kills?

Here is a book which tackles these issues from the philosophical viewpoint. It examines the ethics of the anti-fieldsports lobby and takes their arguments back to their roots.

The conclusions expose the precarious philosophical ground of the anti-fieldsports lobby. It is they who should be on the run.
