Fishing, A Thread
Paperback | English
Thoughts on what led a young lad to begin freshwater fishing, and reflections on a 1950s boyhood in Christchurch, the wildlife in that city’s rural areas, and the way urbanisation drove it away.
Fishing, a Thread charts progress from basic trout fishing skills, through the stages – catch a fish, catch a big fish, a limit bag, then fly fishing. It reflects fishing as a constant in life, how it helps well-being and gives a positive focus. Attention is drawn to changes observed in our waterways across the years, while angling mentors are highlighted, as the thread continues to the wonderful West Coast, to answer the question, “How on earth did you end up in Greymouth?”
