Excerpt from A Book of Fishing Stories

Game fish, though holding first place with the angler of catholic affections, are not the only quarry to be considered. One, at least, of the coarse fish, to the smaller and more homely members of which Mr. Sheringham does justice with his usual charm, enjoys a reputation second to none in the esteem of those who have sought it in its Himalayan haunts and of this giant barbel, the Indian mahseer, Colonel Bairnsfather gives a most attractive account, coloured with the regret of bygone days so characteristic of retired anglo-indians. He makes no pretence to have killed record mahseer. Indeed, as will be seen, one of the fish caught and photographed by Sir Benjamin Simpson, are superior in size to any of his but he succeeds in demonstrating that mahseer of even moderate weight give splendid sport amid surroundings so attractive as to enhance the pleasure of catching them. Scenery em bodies much of the charm of most inland fishing, and brings balm to many a disappointed sportsman during the course of a blank day.
