    DescriptionThis is a concise guide to catching fish from a beach, pier or boat, with advice on rods, reels, lines and tackle, and more than 200 practical photographs and illustrations. It includes a visual guide to the major species, including garfish, cod, bass, whiting, ling, flounder, plaice, blue shark, common skate, mackerel, turbot, and many more. It features detailed practical sections on the use of natural baits such as peeler crabs, lugorms, sandeels and squid, and artificial baits such as spinners, spoons, plugs and pirks. This book is a concise and comprehensive introduction to the world of sea angling. It covers the two main aspects of the sport: fishing from shore and boat fishing. A visual gallery provides information about the major species that the salt-water angler is likely to encounter, from the common cod and bass to the more challenging blue shark and thornback ray. Helpful advice is given on recognition, size potential and feeding habits, as well as top tips for catching fish. Separate sections deal with the use of natural and artificial baits, and the different types available. The book is an essential guide for both the beginner and the more experienced salt-water angler.
