    Abstract

    Using a performative approach this chapter focuses on how game-anglers, as a distinct cooperative of rural actors, have produced and continue to reproduce rural Britain in ways that are consistent with the scripts, social relations and embodied practices that have underpinned their sport since Victorian times. In doing so it considers how a seemingly innocuous activity that is game-angling brings to bear extremely powerful social and natural forces that work together to produce a negotiated sense and innate sensing of the rural. This rurality, when interrogated, reveals much about the way humans perform nature through assembling particular social constructions along with visceral cues and responses.
