Book Extract – Angling Escapades – Mike Green

Mike GreenFrom the foreword by Bob Church:

“My good friend Mike Green is a great and true all-round angler, being as happy with a spinning or jerk rod as he is with a trotting rod and centrepin, a beach-caster, double handed salmon fly rod or the 12 and 14-weight fly-rods he uses for some of the foreign monsters you will read about. He is an out and out countryman, enjoying the outdoor life to the full, and usually walking four or five miles every day with his lovely black Labrador Max – sometimes fishing, other times not. It has become his way of life. The thing which impresses me about Mike, apart from his company, is his spirit of adventure. If he reads or hears about some exotic place to fish, he wants to go there – and invariably he does! I have been nagging Mike to write this book for some time, because it will give inspiration for you to try it yourselves.”


Chapters cover fishing in Nova Scotia, Alaska, Bahamas, Egypt, United Kingdom (many species), France, Ireland, Cape Cod, New Brunswick, The Seychelles, Spain, New Zealand, Andaman Islands, Christmas Island, Giant Tarpon, Finland, Baja, Up The Amazon, Cuba, British Columbia and Argentina.
