Fish and Men: Tales of a Scottish Fisher
This is a heart-warming and often amusing collection of anecdotes
and personal observations from over forty years of fishing,
linked by a commentary on the author's life and times. The book
is about much more than fishing; it is about characters and
countryside, and about fitting a cherished pastime around the
demands of career and family. The reader is taken into the author's
middle years and a perceptive commentary on the stresses and
strains of midlife. For anyone who admits to human frailty,
this new edition will be a comfort, as the author writes just
as freely of his failures and frustrations, as of his successes.
The book promises a rewarding and entertaining read for anglers,
country lovers, and anyone with Scottish roots or leanings.
The expanded version will be a delight to all who enjoyed the
original book. It will also strike a chord with any reader struggling
to come to terms with the particular frustrations of the midlife
crisis, or just reaching that time when they begin to question
what it's all about. Of Fish and Men, Tales of a Scottish Fisher.
