BEER, JON
The Daily Telegraph Gone Fishing. Adventures in Pursuit of Wild Trout
(London: Aurum Press, 2002) 1854108700. . 8vo; original dark green boards, lettered in gilt on spine; laminated pictorial dustwrapper; pp. vi + 185; colour plates. Dustwrapper a bit rubbed and edgeworn, with a little loss to bottom edge of upper panel; trace of spotting to edges, occasional faint fox spot elsewhere. Very good condition. "Jon Beer writes regular columns for both the Daily Telegraph Weekend section and for Trout and Salmon, Britain's leading game fishing magazine. 'There are,' he writes, 'two sorts of book about trout fishing. One sort has a title like "How to Catch Very Big Trout". This is the other sort of trout fishing book.' In other words, it's a book about fly-fishing that doesn't take itself too seriously and will be rapturously welcomed by all those who fish for pleasure rather than for trophies... The great joy of Jon Beer's writing is that he can convey the full flavour of a day's fishing in a way that enables readers to share his relish for the experience and his pleasure in the people he meets and the places he visits - while also passing on some very useful tips in the process, despite his claim that this is not a 'how to' book. This collection will quickly find a permanent place on the bedside table of anglers everywhere.".

VAN DEN BERG, ANDRÉ
Angling in False Bay
(Cape Town: Timmins, 1984). . 8vo; laminated pictorial boards; pp. 123, incl. index; colour plates; maps; line drawings in text. Boards slightly rubbed; some foxing to endpapers, and a little spotting elsewhere. Very good. 'Every year thousands of keen anglers try their luck in False Bay. And many of them never catch anything at all. "Why need they go to all this trouble for so little reward", thought André van den Berg, "when I always succeed?" With this thought in mind he came to Irvin and Johnson's Cape Town office with his idea - a simple, handy and clear record of his own expertise to take the frustration and disappointment out of angling... this manual on False Bay is the result.'.

VAN DEN BERG, ANDRÉ
Kom Hengel in Valsbaai
(Cape Town: Human & Rousseau, 1984). . 8vo; laminated pictorial boards; pp. 122, incl. index; colour plates; line drawings; locality maps. Sunned on spine; some light foxing to endpapers and edges. Very good condition. Afrikaans text. 'Menige ywerige hengelaar het al sy moses teëgekom in die waters van Valsbaai, en telkens word daar sonder sukses weer huiswaarts gekeer. Dit het André van den Berg laat dink: "Hoekom moet ander so baie moeite doen met so min welslae, terwyl ek altyd sukses behaal?" Angevuur deur hierdie idee het hy nou 'n helder, eenvoudige en nuttige uiteensetting van die hengelkuns geskryf om talle hengelaars van frustrasie te verlos. … Vir diegene wat weet waar, hoe en wanneer om te hengel, is Valsbaai 'n hengelaarsparadys, maar soos enige ander stryd verg dit voorbereiding, kennis en ondervinding as jy nie bedroë daarvan wil afkom nie. Met Kom hengel in Valsbaai as basis, is sukses binne die bereik van elke hengelaar. Daarna is dit pure pret.'.

BICKERDYKE, JOHN, AND OTHERS
The Badminton Library of Sports and Pastimes. Sea Fishing
(London, Longmans, Green, and Co, 1907). . 8vo; original pictorial cloth; pp. xviii + 513 (+ adverts.); plates; line drawings in text. Ex-library copy with label on front pastedown and code on spine; light wear to cloth; some hand-stamps and codes inside; scattered moderate foxing. Good condition. "People who are only acquainted with the comparatively rough methods of professional fishermen may be disposed to declare that there is no sport to be obtained in the sea. But those who do me the honour of perusing the following pages can hardly fail to be convinced that salt water is as sport-yielding as fresh, and that there are many kinds of sea fish so wary and such powerful swimmers that in their capture the knowledge and skill of the sportsman are all important.".

BRANDON-KIRBY, ROBERT (TEXT), AND PETER & BEVERLEY PICKFORD (PHOTOGRAPHY)
Fly-Fishing in Southern Africa
(Cape Town: Struik Winchester, 1993) 0947430415. . 4to; original blue cloth, lettered in gilt on spine; laminated pictorial dustwrapper; marbled endpapers; pp. 180; profusely illustrated with the Pickfords' golden images; illustrations of flies by Elsa Pooley. Dustwrapper very slightly rubbed, and partially sunned on lower panel; very small bump to top edge of upper board. Very good condition. (Curtis, 55) "This is the most lavish book so far undertaken or produced in South African fly fishing literature. In fact, very little has been published worldwide that comes even close to matching it. The photographs in the book, by husband and wife team Peter and Beverley Pickford, are breathtaking and must rank as some of the finest ever taken of our sport and of the countryside in which we pursue it. The text, written by well-known playwright, columnist and flyfisherman, Robert Brandon-Kirby, is on a par with the photographs: always interesting, often insightful and sometimes quite beautiful in its lyricism." - Paul Curtis, Fishing the Margins. A History and Complete Bibliography of Fly Fishing in South Africa.

"Are Trout South African? will be of interest to anyone who is engaged with notions of how people belong or claim to belong, how people interact with landscapes, animals, plants or fish species, how our histories and family relationships may form around shared pursuits such as fishing, and, of course, what pleasures, complexities and contradictions there are in the activity of flyfishing for trout in South Africa.".

BURGESS, J. T.
Angling and How to Angle. A Practical Guide to Bait-Fishing, Trolling, Spinning and Fly-Fishing
(London, Frederick Warne, 1895). . Revised and brought up to date by R. B. Marston, editor of "The Fishing Gazette." With a special article on pike-fishing by A. J. Jardine. 8vo; pictorial brown cloth, with gilt titles; pp. x + 212 + adverts.; tissue-guarded frontis. portrait; line drawings. Cover rather fishmothed; spine worn at head and tail; sporadic foxing (quite pronounced in places); some soiling. Fair condition. (J. Fitzgerald Hampton, Modern Angling Bibliography, p. 20) "Though these things have been described ostensibly for the guidance and instruction of the young and inexperienced angler, I am not without hope that it will be found sufficiently valuable, and full of suggestive practical hints, as to commend itself to many an old angler as a necessary part of his outfit.".

CHOLMONDELEY-PENNELL, H., AND OTHERS
The Badminton Library of Sports and Pastimes. Fishing. Pike and Other Coarse Fish
(London, Longmans, Green, and Co, 1909). . 8vo; original pictorial cloth; pp. xx + 448, incl. index; plates (incl. some by Whymper); line drawings in text. Ex-library copy with label on front pastedown and code on spine; light wear to cloth; some hand-stamps and codes inside; scattered moderate foxing. Good condition. "I feel some apology is due to what are, after all, perhaps, the great body of fishermen, for the second part of the title of the present volume. The term 'coarse fish' has been adopted because it seems to be that most generally used and understood, and, therefore, best calculated to convey readily a correct idea of the contents of this essay. Even whilst employing the expression, however, I must record my protest against it. What is there coarse, for example, about the perch of gorgeous scaling, armed cap-à-pie like a paladin of old, and glowing with half the colours of the rainbow? Or the 'arrowy dace,' almost as mettlesome, and perhaps even more graceful and glittering than the aristocratic trout? . Again, when the term 'coarse fishing' is used, have those who employ it ever watched, with a sympathetic eye, the consummate skill and dexterity which a 'cockney' roach-fisher will display in pursuit of his game, and the gossamer fineness of every bit of the tackle he uses?".

CROUS, HENNIE
Saltwater Fishing in South Africa
(Cape Town: Struik, 2000) 1868723070. . 209 x 147 mm; laminated pictorial wrappers; pp. 230, incl. index; colour photographs; locality maps; diagrams. Spine very slightly sunned; trace of curl to bottom fore-corner of wrappers. Very good conditon. "Saltwater Fishing in South Africa - a practical guide to the how, when and where of angling along the South African coastline - has been fully revised and updated to offer the most recent information regarding saltwater fishing in the region. With the inexperienced angler in mind, the initial chapters offer expert advice on understanding the influence of nature on the sea and its fish, buying and maintaining tackle, knot-tying, rig-assembling and bait collecting. Thereafter, drawing on over 30 years of experience, the author discusses rock and surf, estuarine, inshore and deep-sea angling, provides details of 20 popular fish species, and gives careful instruction on the tackle and techniques required to catch them. Thirteen area guides supply commentary on prime fishing spots around the South African coast as well as the type of fishing available at each. Written in an easy, friendly style, and generously illustrated, Saltwater Fishing in South Africa contains all the know-how necessary for the novice to cast for target species with confidence and for the more seasoned angler to improve his fishing skills and catch rate. Saltwater Fishing in South Africa makes the ideal fishing companion.".

HANSFORD-STEELE, BILL
African Fly-Fishing Handbook. A Guide to Freshwater and Saltwater Fly-Fishing in Africa
(Johannesburg: Southern, 1997) 1868128105. . 243 x 170 mm; laminated pictorial wrappers; pp. xvi + 304, incl. index; liberally illustrated with diagrams, line drawings, tables, photographs, plus full-colour photographs of flies. Corners very slightly curled; short crease to top fore-corner. Very good condition. (Curtis 61) "This is very much a 'how to' book and its 13 chapters cover every aspect of fly fishing you're likely to do and is full of good advice, especially for the beginner. It is almost a text book on what to do, where to do it and when. There's a well-researched section on the insects trout eat, a description of - and tactics for - every freshwater fish you're likely to encounter and even a section on what flies to use and how to tie them to catch the various species of fish covered... If you are going to rely on one 'how to' book only, this could serve well as it covers in detail virtually everything you need to know about the mechanics of our sport." - Paul Curtis: Fishing the Margins.
