In very good condition for its age with no rips, tears or foxing to the pages.
Few anglers in the Sixties and Seventies were untouched by the splendid Tight Lines! catalogues produced by ABU for the British market. This book gives an insight into the famous company and some of the finest writing published in the Tight Lines catalogues over the years. Angling historians Keith Harwood and David Stanley bring to life this famous Swedish tackle maker. The ten chapters in the book cover: the Abu story; Abu reels; Abu rods; Abu lures; an overview of the Tight Lines catalogues with illustrated covers from 1948 -2007; just short of 100 pages of articles taken from the catalogues, including those by famous anglers, those concerned with travel, specific species and cooking; and finally some fishing tips. The book is illustrated throughout in colour and black and white and there is also an index.
