This comprehensive guide, for both beginners and intermediates, incorporates the main three types of fishing - coarse fishing, saltwater fishing and game fishing. It aims to provide a strong foundation course in what to fish for, how to fish and different styles of fishing, and the best locations to practise the sport. There is an extensive visual guide to the major species which the angler is likely to encounter, including freshwater carp, saltwater bass, skate, and mackerel, and the main game fish - trout and salmon, with advice on recognition, size potential, behaviour and feeding habits. All types of natural and artificial baits and lures available to the modern angler are discussed as well as the best methods of using them, with step-by-step guidance to making baits and classic fly-tying patterns. The various techniques of freshwater, saltwater and fly fishing are covered in detail, including float fishing, freelining, surface and pole fishing, beach-casting, night fishing, shore fishing and boat fishing, with diagrams of rigs and explanations of when and where to use the most appropriate technique.
