First Edition. An informative and condensed guide to Loch-Fishing, a subdivision of the sport which the author notes in his foreword as victim of many erroneous assumptions. The author attempts to set the record straight over thirteen chapter, with regularly spaced blank pages for the reader to make their own notes and observations.
