Compiled by Bob Buteux

Gathered within this book you will find a varied collection of tales written by some of our most prominent and successful anglers. Some of big fish captures, many of amusing and disastrous days And even the odd weird and frightening event.

Their ages are all on the wrong side of fifty, and a few whose 50th birthday is in the dim distant past. All this gives the reader a wealth of interesting tales that reach back even to the war years These stories aren't intended to teach the reader how to catch fish, but more of how they were caught at a time when there was still much to discover about our sport. Nevertheless, as I did, you will find that the antics that each of them got up to will not only interest and amuse you, but also give you ideas to try or enlarge on when next you go fishing.

I am sure that when each of the contributors wrote his piece for this book, that he relived a memorable day from his early angling career, when he was probably at his earliest or most resolute stage. A time when some become quite fanatical, and suffered untold discomforts in pursuit of their quarry. But we all did it, I know I did, and shudder when I think back at the hardships endured, sometimes going home cold, wet and tired, but all soon forgotten, and then I went back a week later, to do it all again. Such is the fascination of fishing.
