Fishing for the Educated Trout
Murray Books Sydney 1978, 8vo Illust 206p D/J. Foreword by Sir Roden Cutler. The reminiscences of 'a legend in his own lifetime', and his days fly-fishing in the Monaro district of NSW, Tasmania and NZ. " The remarkable feature of this man is that despite his vast experience and vivid memory he remains progressive and innovative throughout, and never dwells on the halcyon past.
This is a book light hearted reminiscences, humorous yarns and lore of trout fishing in Australia, New Zealand, India and Great Britain. " It is in no way a book of instruction, but in the course of a series of humourous yarns he has managed to get in an amazing amount of trout lore, the lore of many countries which has been absorbed in more than fifty years indulging in his sport.” Behind the humour there is some good advice on taking more fish in difficult circumstances and concludes with some thoughts for the future. Concludes with some thoughts for the future. – V Fine
