Fishing - The Best Excuse for Loafing in the Countryside is Keith Arthur's first book.
Through the mysteries of early captures through to battles with giant sharks this book follows Keith Arthur through some glorious and, occasionally, hilarious times. If you are an angler you will recognise yourself somewhere in these pages. If you are not, then maybe you will want to be after reading them.
Every angler that ever cast a line has an idyll. Whether that is casting for wild trout in a pristine Irish stream or waiting for the attack of a giant blue marlin in the Indian Ocean, they will be lost in the moment. In this book Keith Arthur describes how he has loafed through better than half-a-century since growing up in North London and being adopted as a television and radio presenter.
Keith Arthur is Sky Sports' Tight Lines presenter on Sky Sports 1, and also of Fisherman's Blues on talkSPORT.
