A Fisherman's Reflections
A Fisherman's Reflections
  • Description

Born in rural Berkshire in the 1920s, Peter Harvey has been a fisherman all his life. He writes with acute perception about country life and practices during the twentieth century, spurred on by the realization that many of the scenes and events have disappeared for ever and those remaining may well succumb to significant change. Apart from the odd day as a guest on the Tay, Spey and Tweed, most of his salmon fishing has been done on smaller rivers whose intimacy he finds more appealing the Taw, the Usk and the Wye particularly and he writes of the places and practices he has most enjoyed.

However, this is decidedly not an instructional book. As Peter Harvey says : despite having fished for over three quarters of a century I do not flatter myself that what I have to say will be three times more interesting. Because fishing has been an enduring and satisfying pastime my hope is that my experiences will give as much enjoyment to my fellow anglers as I have obtained from reading the angling literature.
