More Information
From dead-sheep bait to whopper-sized catches ("It was this big!"), intoxicated trout, & flying pike, this collection presents the choicest gems of bizarre fishing facts. Consider the Oxford scientist who in 1910 discovered the marvelous life-giving properties of brandy to fish who had otherwise gasped their last. Or how about the nine-year-old boy fishing for trout who caught a large mussel?containing no less than 40 pearls?& managed to earn more in one day than his father, a farm worker, had earned in the last five years. Then there?s the case of the two Americans who had an argument about whether it would be possible to cast a fly from the roof of the Savoy hotel into the Thames. The dispute was finally settled when one of them secured himself to a chimney, &, with the help of a policeman who stopped traffic on the Embankment, finally achieved the feat. Fishing's Strangest Days is like a tin of sardines?packed with fishy, bite size tales guaranteed to have you hooked!
