James Negley Farson never failed to take his fishing rod wherever he went. As much an autobiography as it is a book on fishing, Going Fishing describes Farson’s vast exepriences river fishing while travelling the world. This wonderfully illustrated volume includes varied chapters on Pacific salmon, the Shetland Islands, Uxbridge, the Hebrides, Ireland, the Caucasus, Moscow, the Danube, erupting volcanoes in Chile, and both rural and urban life in England, France, and Norway. Considered one of the classics of fishing literature, it details a lifetime of grand adventures and fishing tales.
Combining lively writing of the countryside with beautiful illustrations, Going Fishing will delight any lovers of fishing, traveling, or the great outdoors.
