Background to Fishing
This booklet is one of eight guides in the National Book League’s Reader’s Guides (Second Series).
Fishing is a bibliography of some 90 works; Ransome’s personal selection of the best angling literature. Ransome’s own Rod and Line (1929) fully deserves inclusion on its own merits, not only the fact that it included Aksakov’s work.
Published by Cambridge University Press in August, 1955.

I do not like putting my own book in this list, but, unless I do, I should have to omit Aksakov.
