"This is a selection of the best essays from the celebrated classic fishing anthology, first compiled in 1945 by 'BB', one of Britain's best-loved naturalists. There are tales of salmon and trout with sections on coarse fishing: carp, tench, barbel, perch, roach, bream, pike and chub. The 'Bishop Browne' story of the giant salmon that was hooked in 1896 where the Earn flows into the Tay and fought for ten hours before the line went slack, cannot fail to arouse a thrill in all fishermen, and there are other classics and less famous fishing incidents in Britain and abroad.The fine and distinctive scraperboard illustrations by Denys Watkins-Pitchford ('BB') all appeared in the original edition of The Fisherman's Bedside Book.Ian Niall in his introduction describes how BB's artistic vision and naturalist's observation enabled him to look at the reeds and rushes, the ancient pollarded willow by the pool and the duck shedding water droplets from frantically beating wings as it springs into the air, and to capture them in illustration and word.The Fisherman's Bedside Book brings together this rare combination of Denys Watkins-Pitchford's skills with some of the best writing from fishing people for fishing people."

When in October 1990 at the age of 85, BB (Denys Watkins-Pitchford) died he was generally recognised as the grand old man of English countryside writing. He wrote about travel, fishing and about wildlife both from a shooting man's point of view and increasingly as a dedicated conservationist. BB the writer and professional artist is well known but less well known is BB the man. The book is not in any sense a biography. Instead it is an attempt to recall BB's own memories of his life as well as the memories of some of those who knew him. It is an impressionistic portrait of a man who left a body or work - books, paintings and illustrations - that is unique.
