“From the earliest times anglers have insisted that angling is an art and not a science.  IN the present age science encroaches further into the realms of angling than ever before, for precision engineering, chemical research, and the study of biology combine to improve tackle and our knowledge of fish behaviour to a degree unthought of twenty years ago.  Yet angling remains an art, for the fish themselves are as unpredictable in their actions as they ever were.  It is for that reason that these volumes appear under the simple title, The Art of Angling, a title used by half a score of anglers who lived and died before the opening of the twentieth century.”
