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 i other parts of Europe, where 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 the complete newcomer but also to the angular with a little experience seeking now to improve his ability to catch more and larger fish.
