This ends of the fishing records book full. The book 19 cm x 11 cm red leather binding. The contents clean and tight all the photos captioned identifying people places the catch etc. The records comments and descriptions all written in ink in a clear legible hand. The whole put together neatly. Although most of the people are identified by their first names or initials, I have been unable to name the owner but I would imagine with more research this can be found. The fishing is mainly trout with occasional sea Trout and Salmon with summary of the catch and weights recorded.
