Fishing by Henry Beard
Book DescriptionOne of the most popular books ever published on the art of angling looks irreverently at the fishing life, from hook - "An irritating but highly reliable device used to quickly and precisely locate the position of one's thumb at the bottom of a tackle box" - to line - "Length of long, thin, strong synthetic material stretched between two fishing rods and joined at its midpoint by a pair of linked hooks" - to sinker - "A lead weight in any of a variety of shapes and sizes attached to lines or terminal tackle to facilitate the speedy disposal of unwanted lures." Now FISHING, with 523,000 copies in print, joins GOLFING and SAILING as the latest instalment in the Bulging Pocket Dictionary series. A lexicon with over 200 dead- on definitions and 50 witty line illustrations, the book offers the same wry outlook that has kept readers laughing for years. Packaged in the small square format that's fresh, portable and compulsively readable, it's perfectly sized for one of those mysterious ballooning pockets on a fishing vest.
