First edition. This book is an interesting little study on 'where to fish', from which we can draw the sad inference that well known angling haunts were no longer proving bountiful due to a combination of overfishing and pollution. Alas, the book deviates often into well-trodden territory on how to catch a fish, but occasionally comes out with gems such as "Fishing in a Rubber Dinghy."
