“There are many books on pike-fishing, but until now none of them had provided the reader with a comprehensive history of the sport. A History of Pike Fishing is both intensely detailed and wide-ranging, and portrays its subject accurately and informatively. The sport’s story is a spellbinding tale and Graham Booth has mined an original rich seam of knowledge to form a superb narrative of great authority and power. Biographies are presented of many key figures, including an astounding wealth of newly-discovered facts concerning key anglers of the period.
VOLUME I deals with the period up to 1950; charting the earliest origins of the sport, examines its growth, development and popularity, and identifies a ‘Golden Age’ of pike-fishing and how the past laid the foundations for piking today.
“Graham Booth’s passion for pike fishing has led him to write a fascinating history of the sport. A History of Pike Fishing is a joy indeed, and beautifully presented by Norfolk publisher, Stephen Harper” CHRIS BISHOP – Eastern Daily Press
