Hi Martin,
Maurice Wiggin is/was a critic for The Sunday Times,his most celebrated book was The Passionate Angler.This was published by The Country Book Club. Dedicated to Bernard Venables, this was not available to the general public but only through subscription to the Country Book Club which was organised by The Field. Their note at the time says 'Concerned with the enduring pleasures....the words flow smoothly as a broad-backed stream'.Also wrote The Anglers Bedside Book.
