Stephen Cox writes fishy tales for anglers and other human beings.
or direct from Zois on this site:
Anglers love telling stories. Usually these stories are based on personal experience. The stories this book, however, are entirely fictional. They involve all sorts of different characters from the very young to the very old, and beyond. Any resemblance to actual anglers is purely coincidental. One or two of the stories are directly concerned with issues within the world of angling but most address themselves to wider themes. Some are humorous. Some are sad. Some are mysterious. Several of them have been published in an angling magazine but here they are collected together for the first time.
