A new edition of Charles Rangeley-Wilson's fishing book, Chalkstreams - Fishing the Perfect River, now in hardback and full colour.

For centuries chalkstreams have inspired anglers. All the qualities of a spring-fed river – constant, equable, cool, fertile – are magnified in a chalkstream. A sickle-shape of chalk downland that runs from Normandy to Yorkshire, gives birth to over a hundred of the most perfect rivers for large and fussy trout. Chalkstream is an anthology of inspirational writing that celebrates these rivers, their geology, their history, their trout and their fly fishing. From Ruskin and Coleridge to Plunket Greene and Charles Ritz; from the stately Test, to the dapperling Piddle; streams that flow through unspoilt countryside, streams that flow through pipes, watermeadows to snuff mills: chalkstreams, the ultimate trout rivers, are unique to England and northern France, and this book praises them all. It's a book that will appeal as much to passionate trout fishermen as to armchair anglers with a love of beautiful rivers.

The book is divided by region - Wessex, Thames, East Anglia, Eastern Wolds, and France - and includes colour maps of the English chalkstream catchments and beautiful colour photographs taken by the author.
