La pêche à pied

Fishing from the shore

History and techniques


G. Deschamps

Edition 2016

Fishing from the shore has always been part of maritime culture but the history of its practices and the evolution of its various techniques have not been widely disseminated. This book aims to remedy that deficit. The author explains how man, down through the ages, has engaged in what used to be a subsistence activity and today is a leisure sport. This journey through time shows the creative genius of man and the countless methods he has devised to exploit available resources.

Which Rivers for Tomorrow?

Thoughts on the Ecology and Restoration of Water Courses


C. Lévêque

Edition 2016

This book explores all aspects of man’s relations with rivers, from the legal status of water courses to the notion of “good ecological state”, via their animal population, the exploitation of their resources, the aquatic landscapes, the policies of large river cities and the imaginary world of running water. Of the view that the environment serves humanity, not the reverse, the author also wonders about the relevance of the concept of ecological “restoration”.
