The Golden Years of Fishing in New Zealand

AU$56.00
By: HOLDEN, P.
ID No.: 2390
Hodder and Stoughton  Auckland, 1984.  4to, Illust, 291pp. D/J. An anthology of early writing on New Zealand fishing; for trout, salmon and big-game fish. "For novelist Zane Grey, and countless other enthusiasts who visited this country in the 1920s and 1930s, New Zealand was 'the angler's Ed Dorado'. The famous trout fishing waters of Lake Taupo and the Tongariro River, the salmon rivers of the South Island, and the deep-sea fishing grounds of the Bay of Islands were renowned for the exhilarating sporting experiences and prolific catches they afforded. Through fishermen's stories extracted from old books and popular magazines, such as the Auckland Weekly News and The New Zealand Fishing and Shooting Gazette, Philip Holden has gathered a selection of tales, anecdotes and boasts, to bring to life 'the golden years of fishing' from the beginning of European settlement until the 1930s. The storytellers include New Zealand's foremost early fishing writers - Montague Craddock, Lady Barker, G.M. Thomson, T.E. Donne, F. Rollett, Malcolm Ross - and the exploits of such celebrated overseas visitors as Sir Rider Haggard, Duke of Gloucester, Duke and Duchess of York, Lord Jellicoe, Lord Baden-Powell, Sir Harry Lauder, Lord Bledisloe, Sir Charles Fergusson, Viscount Galwey,  William Marshall, Zane Grey, and Lord Grimthorp make fascinating reading".  Supported by 150 photographs. -Very Fine.
