From the cover: Celebrated foreign correspondent Negley Parson had more opportunity than most to enjoy his favourite sport to the full. Travelling the world with his two most prized possessions a fishing rod and a typewriter he found adventure at every turn. And wherever there was water, he fished rainbow trout in the Andes, sea trout in the Shetlands, sturgeon on the Black Sea, trout from the mountain rivers of former Yugoslavia, tales from the Catskills to the Caucasus, from the Baltic to the Kalahari, here are some of the best fishing stories ever written.
Parson conjures up vivid images of distant places and people, and relates some of his most dangerous and exciting fishing exploits.
First published in 1942, Going Fishing is now republished in this handsome edition with its original illustrations. Negley Parsons tales of fishing between the two World Wars continue to fascinate and enthral a new generation, and revive happy memories for those who regard him as one of the greatest fishing writers of all time.
