Sticker ghost and slight rubbing to dust-wrapper otherwise a near fine copy of the first printing. This is "a memoir of angling, of great fish caught and lost, but it is also a story of friendship, honour and coming of age. .As a child in the 1960's, Luke Jennings was fascinated by the rivers and lakes around his Sussex home. .With library books as his guide, he applied himself to the task of learning to fish. .As an adult, Luke Jennings has sought out lost and secretive waterways, probing waters .at dead of night in search of giant pike. The quest, as always, is for more than the living quarry. For only by searching beneath the surface, Jennings suggests, .can we connect with our own deep histories." The author is very widely read in the literature of angling and this is reflected in the text. Bookseller Inventory # 37064

Well, Chilly, Reg and I moved onto Wraysbury in 1997 and one weekend we arranged to meet Dave there, for Reg's birthday I seem to recall. Anyway, boats were not allowed at the time, but that rule seemed to have passed us by. The short story is, we got caught and got banned. There's even a swim named after us, where the 'captures' took place - The Banned." (Keith Jenkins - publisher and editor).
