The Oldest Fishing Book?

The Oldest Fishing Book?

oldest-fishing-bookI find this video very intriguing. How the contents of this very old manuscript was discovered is kind of like the DaVinci Code of fishing. Thanks to Tony Wee for sharing the link.

Handwritten in ancient scripts by a monk about fishing around the year 1450. What was the monk actually up to? Why write down the different methods of catching fish? Who is the monk sharing the information with? Is it for more than just food, for sport? Fish must be aplenty then. What more will the translations reveal?

Watch the video and see if you agree that it is intriguing. Watch the part where they estimate the value of this rare find.
