The Greatest Fishing Tips in the World
Whether you fish for gudgeon or grayling, minnows or marlin, trout or tench, this book is bursting with tips and advice to help you catch more fish and enjoy your angling more - wherever and however you fish. Written by angling correspondent of "The Independent", Keith Elliott, it covers many types of fishing: coarse, carp, competition, sea and fly. Keith's fishing tips & advice will show you...how to catch more of those crafty carp on a heavily fished water; how much to tip a ghillie, especially in remote areas of India or Mongolia; that Sugar Puffs, mini-marshmallows & peparami can make great bait if the tackle shop's closed; just how easy it is to catch prawns for bait and keep them alive; and, what to do if you're drawn next to five-times world champion Alan Scotthorne in a competition! It is a book especially for those who want to see a little more action: those who are not content just to stare at a motionless float or rod tip all day.
