Fishing: A Very Peculiar History

    By

    Fishing, A Very Peculiar History explores one of the most ancient and popular pastimes in the world in the unique Cherished Library style, packed full of fascinating facts, quirky trivia and mind-boggling statistics. Rob Beattie tackles everything from the history of fish and chips to fish that look like celebrities and from what the well-dressed angler is wearing this season to brave fishing adventures and different fishing techniques from around the world. Fact boxes, a full glossary and index make the book both fun and informative to use. The text is enlivened with black-and-white line drawings and full-colour endpapers. Whether you read a page, a chapter or a whole book, you won't be able to help but be intrigued, and amazed at how much information is packed into a Cherished Library title.
