This vintage book is a complete guide to fishing at sea, with a special focus on fishing around the British coast. With information on everything from common methods of hook and line fishing to the choice of nets and boat, this book constitutes a must-have for the keen sea-fisherman, and would make for a fantastic addition to collections of related literature. Contents include: "Marks, and how to Take Them", "Methods of Fishing", "the Possible Bag", "Shifting Leads for Sea-side Visitors", "Sea-fishing and Hydrography", "Gear and Tackle Required in Sea-fishing", "The South-West Coast of England, Channel Islands, &c.", "The Whiting", "Ground-fishing Gear", "Lines", "Barking or Tanning Lines", etc. Many old books such as this are becoming increasingly rare and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on sailing. This book was first published in 1884.
