Found this in the 1895 John Bickerdyke book, Sea Fishing. I found his comments about his invention the line guard particularly interesting. The book is available for download here -

one of the top anglers of his day Mr bickerdyke and very clever man .He has a excellent pike fishing book and a coarse fishing book .theres lots of good stuff in them theres descriptions of practices that's been forgotten & reinvented as modern techniques .
I try to be funny... but sometimes I merely look it! Steve
