?Lochs & Loch Fishing? is an 1899 guide to angling in Scotland written by Hamish Stuart. Within it, Stuart explores the nuances of fishing in a loch, which is the Scottish Gaelic, Irish, and Scots word meaning lake or sea inlet. More detailed than typical guides of its kind, ?Lochs & Loch Fishing? looks at the particulars of loch fishing with reference to its inhabitants, their evolution, habits, habitats, and much more. This volume will appeal to those with a practical interest in fishing in Scotland, and it would make for a worthy addition to collections of angling literature. Contents include: ?The Duffer's Paradise?, ?Lake-Land and Its Lessons?, ?Loch Trout and Evolution: Why They Vary in Size and Quality?, ?Loch Trout and Evolution: The Effects of Particular Environments?, ?Fishing as the Hand-Maiden of Science?, ?The Lessons of Some Lakes?, ?The Salmonidae in Brackish Waters?, etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on the history of fishing.
