The perfect gift for the angler in your life
Anglers can be odd types. Lawyers, bricklayers, bankers, and double-glazing salespeople during the week, come the weekend they're up to their wrists in worms, waiting, hoping, waiting some more, hoping again, losing hope, more waiting. But why? The Daredevil Book for Anglers has the answer. This is a surreal and funny expose of one of the nation's most popular sports. Sections include The Art of Waiting (sitting around on a riverbank for hours and hours, watching a float bobbing about a bit, without going stark raving mad); How to Lie (Caught anything? It's the question every angler dreads), and Yeah, Course Your Son's Desperate to Go Fishing with You (Why forcing the boy to learn to fish makes you a bit of a git).
