SKU: 74 Categories: ,
  • Fans bearing images of fishing and fishermen are surprisingly rare. Hélène Alexander Adda, director of the London-based Fan Museum, takes a look at social history reflected in fans and at some early European fans bearing fishing images.
  • This elderly woman isn’t just posing for a picture: she’s playing an 850lb marlin. Not bad for a great-grandmother of 85, out on her very first big-game fishing trip…
  • This rod, which sold for a mighty $6100 a Lang’s last auction, was made by Pinky Gillum, who refused to sell to people he considered unsportsmanlike.
  • Detective work by David Solomon uncovers the very spot on the Avon that Roderick Haig-Brown wrote about spotting a big pike in A River Never Sleeps.
  • This huge Nile perch is one of the biggest ever caught from the river that gave the fish its name. All Our Yesterdays tells the story.
  • John Bailey reveals details about the television series he is about to do, based on the book of Mr Crabtree Goes Fishing.
  • This handsome reel is a one-off. It’s the only titanium reel ever made by Steve Abel, and it came up for sale on eBay.
