The Bluffer’s Guide to Fishing: A Crash Course in Becoming an Instant Angling Expert
The skills passed down over generations of anglers is what keeps the pass-time evolving, but for a novice to pick up a rod for the first time, the experience can be quite intimidating.
Fishing is often overlooked as the most popular participatory sport in the UK, but author Rob Beattie has been dedicated for a number of years in turning fishing charlatan’s across the country into angling virtuosos. His new book, The Bluffer’s Guide to Fishing, is a complete guide to how to talk the talk and walk the walk of an expert fisherman, but also how to snag the catch of a lifetime.
Rob Beattie recalls in his writing laying eyes on a fish for the first time as a child, when he fell into a stream near Laurencekirk in Scotland. Although momentarily traumatised by the experience, he recalls resurfacing with fish in his pockets as the moment he became an angler. Since that day, Beattie has written several renowned books on the sport including 101 Golden Rules of Fishing and Fishing: A Very Peculiar History.
So whether you’re a seasoned veteran, an angler in waiting or looking to inspire a new fishing buddy, The Bluffer’s Guide to Fishing will be sure to teach you a thing or two.
