Extraordinary but true stories from over two hundred years for angling history.
Fishing's Strangest Tales gathers together two choice stories and bizarre fishing tales from all over the world. Consider the Oxford scientists who in 1910 discovered the marvellous life-giving properties of brandy to fish who had otherwise gasped their last. Or how about the nine-year-old boy fishing for trout who caught a large mussel - containing no less than forty pearls - and managed to earn more in one day than his father, a farm worker, had in the last five years? Fishing's Strangest Tales is full of fascinating tales that may sound fishy and unbelievable but will have you caught hook, line and sinker.
