Sir Hudson Fysh

The co-founder and one time MD of Qantas airline was also an ardent trout fisherman.

“His favourite rivers are those of the Snowy Mountains area in New South Wales, but he has also fished for trout and salmon in New Zealand and Scotland, and for mahseer in India; he has put a fly over famous rivers in England, far rivers in New Guinea and Austria, and waters in North America and Japan. His book is a recapturing of happy days in lovely places in the company of birds, animals, wildflowers, fish and fishermen.”

If you have your own airline and want to follow in his footsteps; or just want to read about fishing then this 1st edition (1968) hardcover could be yours.
