Adventure FishingBook - 2003
Henry Gilbey's passion for fishing has taken him all over the world. In Adventure Fishing, he invites us to share his most exciting angling experiences -- from hooking river salmon in Canada, to casting for shark in the surf of Namibia, and wreck fishing off the coast of the United Kingdom. Vivid descriptions of each trip are accompanied by full-color photographs that convey all the action and drama of the chase. In addition, Gilbey presents a liberating approach to fishing techniques, adapting traditional methods in favor of what works for catching a variety of species, from trout to tarpon, sea bass to salmon. Gilbey's quest is for fishing that exhilarates. He pits skill, intuition, and luck against the powers of nature, inspiring the reader to stretch the boundaries of the sport. Book jacket.
