Reader's note

Angling is an ancient pastime which has never lost its appeal. In many countries it is significant as being the most popular participant sport of them all - a fact particularly apparent here in Britain, as well as in other parts of Europe, which literally millions of individuals escape the daily grind of modern life by devoting leisure hours to hunt fish. Coarse fishing is a subdivision of the sport which boasts a particularly large following, and in this book Peter Wheat, a self-confessed fanatic, offers the right kind of down-to-earth advice which will be found invaluable not only to the complete newcomer but also to the angler with a little experience seeking now to improve his stability to catch more and larger fish.
