Fish Fishing and the Meaning of Life


In Fish, Fishing and the Meaning of Life Jeremy Paxman creates the perfect literary catch for fellow angling enthusiasts in this rich and varied anthology. Each chapter is introduced by Paxman's own sharp, humorous observations and features both contemporary and historical writing about fishing in prose and verse, covering everything from tench tickling to piranha attacks.

Some pieces are well known favourites, others are obscure, every one is a delight.

 'A superb compilation because it roams from carp to cod, trout to tarpon and does not regurgitate the same old clippings' Independent on Sunday
