by John Brookes
When David Scholes praised a fly fishing book you should take notice.
'Numerous anglers tried to fish the Shannon, but only the skilled had any success. The extremely clear water made it so demanding, but not for John Brookes. His results were phenomenal." David Scholes.
John Brookes learnt to fly fish at Miena when 13 in 1934: and so began a seventy year association with Tasmania and its trout. Lifelong Pleasure is based on the fishing diary he kept for over seventy years. John also included a biography of John Malcolm Gillies, a great fly fisher and tackle maker. This is a classic in the making and I can't recommend it highly enough. Mike Stevens.
