The Eel Angler is a true-to-life account of the fanatical eeling adventures of Barry McConnell and friends, as he relates these riveting, and often hilarious stories of his eel-angling experiences. He is joined by Graham Howes, and later, by Peter Drabble, as they embark on a learning curve, and develop their eel-angling skills through hands-on experience and the capture of many big eels.

Different waters throughout the UK are explored, and also in New Zealand and Australia, where a succession of double figure eels are caught to over 20 lbs. The habits and wariness of the eel as a species becomes apparent as the book progresses, and Barry’s search for the perfect bite indicator for resistance-shy fish results in his invention of ‘The Rollover Indicator’.

However, this is not just a book about eels; there is also a theme of natural history and the great outdoors throughout the book as the many birds, insects and creatures of the night are encountered; there is also much bankside banter and even the occasional eccentric social gathering with other eel-angling fanatics as they pursue their enigmatic and fascinating quarry.
