Putting Ransome on the Map

Fishing

Background to Fishing

This booklet is one of eight guides in the National Book League’s Reader’s Guides (Second Series).

Synopsis

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.

First publication

Published by Cambridge University Press in August, 1955.

Ransome's drawing of a cormorant eating a fish, our fishing literature logo, used for Fishing

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