Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In 2004, Yellow Jersey published one of the most highly acclaimed fishing books of recent years, Charles Rangeley-Wilson s Somewhere Else. In 2006, Rangeley-Wilson will be presenting his own BBC2 TV series, The Accidental Angler. Published to accompany the TV series, The Accidental Angler s fifteen new stories take us from London suburbs to Bhutan, the Soviet wilderness to the Seychelles anywhere a fishing rod leads. A fishing rod will break the ice with locals, guides, farmers, shopkeepers, taxi drivers and bar-flies. Whether in the world s most outlandish and awe-inspiring places or just at the end of your road, fishing will introduce you to crabby weather and crabby locals, moon-phases, rip-tides, floods, droughts, remarkable tales, and of course fantastic slippery beasts. In The Accidental Angler you ll battle titanic monsters on a tropical atoll and make-believe sharks on the mushy-peas-and-gravy Wash. You ll chase inscrutable grayling through back gardens in Provence, or phantom sea trout in downtown Southampton. And you ll run away from pill-popping Icelandic farmers and find secret rivers hidden beneath the streets. Fishing can take you to the heart of the landscape in
