Sitting on a riverbank, with rod and line, must count as one of the most relaxing and enjoyable - yet occasionally frustrating - experiences known to man.
Chris Yates discovered the joys of fishing early in life and was quickly hooked by its pleasures. Many years later, he is still content to sit, day after day, observing the quirks of different fish and losing track of time. For him, fishing is much more than just a question of technique; sometimes it's about listening to nothing but your instincts, and at other times it's about enjoying the perfect cup of tea. And it's always about not knowing how the day is going to unfold . . .
There's no better guide for the uninitiated - and no better companion for those already familiar with the satisfactions of fishing - than Chris Yates. And immersing yourself in How To Fish is almost as delightful an activity as fishing itself.
