By asking those who know it the best and love it the most, those who foster the law and lore surrounding it, those who keep the old wisdom alive and guard the myths. By this measure, John Tate is an expert, with nearly sixty years of angling behind him and a few good years ahead yet.One of the few willing to shoulder responsibility for himself and his sport, John shows us how angling can make ones world better, more civilised, and how the world of angling could be improved. He also presents a more spiritual view: angling is a way in which to participate in the universe.John began his waterways apprenticeship as a young lad, at the feet of his grandfather, an old-fashioned pike angler. Pike initially drew John in, but in subsequent years hes fished for almost anything you can entice onto a hook in British water, from barbel to zander. Here he tells us about the thrills, spills and companions that have kept him angling for so many years.
