“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 II brings the story of the evolution of pike fishing right up to date, detailing all the developments, famous pike angler’s, famous waters, and the big pike that are now so familiar to us. A History of Pike Fishing will undoubtedly warrant a place on every thinking angler’s bookshelf.”
“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
