More Information
Harry, an incorrigible, engaging and dapper biscuit salesman in his forties becomes the unlikely angling companion of young Tony, the love-struck, shy 19-year-old Jewish accountant who is courting his step-daughter. Throughout the 1960s, this unique fishing friendship is cemented via a series of fishing jaunts across London, Essex then further afield, to ponds, gravel pits and rivers. At times touching, at times bawdy, always amusing - this is a book not just for anglers but for anyone who enjoys a finely-told story.

REVIEW:
'A lovely story, very entertaining and well written - a fishing tale to touch the heart and make us laugh at the same time.' Rachel Lichtenstein, author of Rodinsky's Room (Granta Books).
