Mike Thrussell is one of the most recognisable names and faces in UK angling. Addicted To Angling is a detailed account of his lifetime’s obsession with fish and fishing, following an ever-expanding road of adventure, travel and personal growth.
Taken in to the heart and mind of the author, readers will recognise and relate to the moment he crosses the line from being a fisherman to becoming an obsessive angler – one of a rare breed who have forged an entire career from the sport they love. It is a view of an often hidden world, but one that will open up opportunities for others that feel they too may, or must, follow a similar path.
But Addicted to Angling is more than a personal journey: there is much to learn, too, and the detailed description of the capture of some incredible and unusual fish leaves readers with a wealth of tactics used to target not just the big fish, but also a wide number of individual species in the UK and across the globe.
“This book is exactly what I hoped it would be; full of fishing anecdotes as well as Mike’s angling story. What’s more it’s written in such a way that I can actually hear Mike telling the tales as I read the words. Unless you are an angler it is difficult sometimes to appreciate what we have and how lucky we are to have it. Mike’s seminal work will without doubt be able to bring the definition of why we fish to everyone, whether they have ever held a fishing rod or not.”
Keith Arthur, Sky Sports’ Tight Lines
“Mike Thrussell’s Addicted to Angling gets to the heart of the sport – a personal contest between man and fish, a pursuit with remarkable highs and its fair share of lows.
As a leading angling journalist, Mike has woven an engaging tale of his pursuit of a multitude of species at home and abroad. But it’s more than a personal journey, being packed with all those must-have nuggets of advice that have made Mike such a highly regarded angling writer.”
Cliff Brown, Editor, Sea Angler Magazine
“Mike Thrussell is a rare bird: an angler’s angler and a writer’s writer, and in Addicted To Angling he has shown us the best of both. Addicted To Angling is a book of stories, of rigs, and of fish catching tips, delivered in Mike’s deceptively easy style. In more ways than one, this is, the angling book of a lifetime.”
