This is a First Edition copy of ‘What I Have Seen While Fishing and How I Have Caught My Fish‘.

In 1905 Philip Geen had been the President of the London Angler’s Association for 27 years. He took the opportunity to commemorate this term of office by writing a memoir of his fishing exploits and experiences, which he dedicated to the members of that association. The book was privately printed, with the author paying for it himself.

The text is split into three parts and relates the joys of fishing in a time when rivers were clean, fish were plentiful and fishermen were gentlemen first and sportsmen second.
