A classic and comprehensive bibliography of literature on the art of angling.

From the author's Editorial Comment:
"The art of angling, which we in the United States call fishing, had come a long way since the 15th century, when an English angler listed the best baits for pike in order of their importance - 1: a pair of tender kittyens; 2: a Gentleman's hand; 3: a swan's head; 4: a mule's lip; 5: a damsel's foot." With our conquer of the wilderness, industrialization, go-getting, and profit-making came time to fish for pleasure. Books about fish and fishing proliferated and brought with them the need for this bibliography.
