Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Chris Yates discovered the joys of fishing early in life and was quickly hooked by its pleasure. Many years later, he is still content to sit, day after day, observing the quirks of different fish and losing track of time. For him, fishing is much more than just a question of technique; sometimes it's about listening to nothing but your instincts, and at other times it's about enjoying yourself in the moment. And it's always about not knowing how the day is going to unfold.

There's no better guide for the uninitiated--and no better companion for those already familiar with the satisfactions of fishing--than Chris Yates. From casting and reeling to whiling away the hours, How to fish is a gem of a book that gets to the heart of the passion for angling: there's more to fishing than catching fish.

About the Author

CHRIS YATES is a photographer, an author, the founder of Waterlog magazine, and first and foremost a fisherman. For years he was the angling correspondent for the financial Times. He was first inspired to write about fishing by the discovery of a monster carp in his village pond when he was five.
