This vintage book contains a collection of short stories and anecdotes related to fishing, originally published in the Birmingham Mail and the Fishing Gazette. These easy-to-read and often amusing anecdotes will appeal to all with a love for angling, and they are not to be missed by collectors of vintage fishing literature. Contents include: "Angler Integrity", "Futility of Faked Baits", "Depressing Story of Rural Cunning", "Intelligence of Cats", "Delightful December", "Intolerable Size Limit Laws", "A New Form of Indoor Sport", "Edible Qualities of Fire", "A False Alarm of Fire", "A Day of Variegated Luck", "An Instance of Thrift", "Advice which Failed to Find Acceptance", and "Ideal Holiday Home for Fishermen". Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with its original artwork and text. "Few and Short - Some Fishing Stories" was first published in 1930.
