The Golden Years Of Fishing in New Zealand Philip Holden
Hard Back 294 pages
Very good condition
Through fishermen's stories extracted from old books and popular magazines, such as the Auckland Weekly News and The New Zealand Fishing and Shooting Gazette, Philip Holden has gathered a selection of tales, anecdotes and boasts, to bring to life `the golden years of fishing' from the beginning of European settlement until the 1930s. They convey the zeal and often fanaticism that anglers have for their sport, but they also show something of the camaraderie and gentlemanly ethics that are so important among fishermen.

The storytellers include New Zealand's foremost early fishing writers-Montague Craddock, Lady Barker, G.M. Thomson, T.E. Donne, F. Rollet, Malcolm Ross-and the exploits of such celebrated overseas visitors as Sir Rider Haggard, Duke of Gloucester, Duke and Duchess of York, Lord Jellicoe, Lord Baden-Powell, Sir Harry Lauder, Lord Bledisloe, Sir Charles Fergusson, Viscount Galway, Sir William Marshall, Zane Grey, H. White-Wickham and Lord Grimthorpe make fascinating reading.

This collection, interspersed with over 150 splendid photographs, will have a far-reaching appeal as it offers glimpses of sporting life in the old days-the highly organised camps, the fishing lodges and the guides.
