Dales appears to be from the Walthamstowe area and the Walthamstowe angling club appears regularly in his notes, he fished in East Anglia and the South East including Lea, Thames, Stour, Ouse etc., The diary uses both sides of the open page giving columns for date, day, place, numbers of fish, sizeable fish, total.

As the notebook developed the remarks became longer and more detailed especially relating to his match fishing, 5 pages summarise the competitions entered, won, prize money, place etc., The diary ends at the bottom of the page Sunday 8 march 1964, the following pages are ruled and titled but unused. Dale wrote 2 articles for the Fishing Gazette in 1934 under the name "Contray" Bream Fishing in Norfolk's shallow broads followed by another article in 1935 and letters and comments to the angling press. Cuttings of the articles are tipped onto pages. There are also 7 pages on sea fishing in a similar vein.

The book is internally clean, the original 1/2 red leather is rubbed on corners and edges, the spine has split down one side and is loose but holding, the biding is tight.
