In the United Kingdom and Ireland, “coarse fishing” is used to refer to angling for coarse fish, which are freshwater fish that are rather than game fish. All Freshwater game fish are salmonids (particularly salmon, trout and char), and therefore coarse fish are freshwater fish that are not salmonids. This vintage book contains a complete guide to angling for these fish, with chapters on everything from equipment and preparation to habit, habitat, and beyond. “Coarse Fishing” will appeal to those with a practical interest in this type of angling, and it would make for a fantastic addition to collections of angling literature. Contents include: “A Matter for the Cook”, “Gear”, “The Fish”, “The Weir-Pool”, “Roach”, “A Morning with the Dace”, “Carp and Tench”, “Bream”, “Chub in Summer and Winter”, “The Golden Fish”, “Shreds and Patches”, “Eels”, “Pike”, “Odds and Ends”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on the history of fishing.
