A Shooting Fishing Book

**Please note this book is only available in ebook format**

What chaps really like to do in bed is to think about shooting and fishing. the pastel shades and heady fragrances of the boudoir are a far cry from their natural habitat of coverts, moors and marshes, lochs, lakes ponds and meres and, if they are honest, all a bit unnerving. There may be stuff that they get up to in bed from time to time, recreationally or otherwise which they will undertake with zeal and gusto deriving from a natural sense of inquisitiveness and a proper understanding of their obligations - but in the end they will always return to fishing and shooting.

In this collection of essays by Roderick Emery and Giles Catchpole from The Shooting Gazette and Trout & Salmon, the authors drift agreeably here and there through the world of shooting and fishing and relate tales of high drama, low rivers, successes and failures, occasional triumphs and periodic disasters, some very funny, a few very sad; each graphically illustrated by Olly Copplestone.

If you are a chap, or if you share a bed with a chap, this is your book.

It will not make you a finer Shot or a better angler and it will not improve your technique, but left beside the bed it will always be there when you want it which is, as any chap knows, the whole point.

About the Author:

Giles Catchpole has written the Last Cast column in Trout & Salmon magazine since 1996, about his triumphs and mishaps ranging from our native rivers and lochs to Alaska, Tierra del Fuego and the Caribbean. He has been consistently out-fished by a variety of friends and relatives, outraged by the activities of politicians and antis and outwitted by almost every species of fish known to man.

His column is populated by a variety of characters from the brotherhood of the angle whose piscatorial efforts, and occasional successes, are related with considerable wit, great charm and a deal of scepticism.
