Reading the Water: A Life Spent Fishing

Darryl Grimason vividly and lyrically conveys in this book the all-consuming passion for fishing that has inspired him since boyhood. Whether describing a nostalgic attachment to his first special fishing rod, the pleasures of angling for wild brown trout on Lough Corrib or the capture of a Giant Bluefin Tuna off the Donegal coast, his enthusiasm for the subject is infectious. Set against the elemental power of the ocean, and the ever-changing moods of Ireland's lakes and waterways, Reading the Water gives a mesmerising account of the author's lifelong love affair with fishing that is both deeply personal and universally appealing.
