Have you bought loads of sea angling books in the hope that at least one will contain some simple pictures and explanations of bait preparation and presentation rather than just showing you a picture of a ready baited rig? Not found one yet? Then this book is for you. Excellent purchase.

If you are new to sea fishing then this book will help you through the minefield of technical names and jargon. It will show you how to make simple and effective rigs which do catch fish, believe me i am a serious match fisherman! it then explains the various types of sea baits and their usages how to hook worms etc.....bait presentation is just as important as the rig you are using. This book certainly helped me no end when i started back beach fishing 4 years ago, it will give you the confidence to go into your tackle shop and not look like a complete novice, and also save you money in the long run.

I have been sea fishing all my life,but my next outing will be a far more enjoyable and hopefully more rewarding experience after reading this book. All the directions,diagrams and photographs were clear and easy to understand,this made reading it a real pleasure. A lot of what is covered in this book is of the most up to date ideas or improvments on some tried and tested old ones.

A consise guide to all the bait and tackle guidance given in Sea Angler magazine over the past few years. Well worth the money, a valuable tool for novice and experianced anglers alike. The format is easy reading and text is backed up with good use of diagrams and photos. A good insight into the ways of the bait with good information about finding (digging) your own, and how to keep it fresh.

I have only had this book for a few days and only being a beginner to the world of Sea Angling i have found it very useful. It has show me things that you would never know unless you belong to a club, instead of bying rigs it shows you how to build your own therefore saving money. it also shows how to keep your bait fresh and re-usable for your next fishing trip, that also saves money. All in all a very cheap but valuble book for the beginner to Sea Angling.

Get past Wilson's gurning, mugging puss and you have an excellent reference book. This book will teach you everything you need to know about rigs, hooks and knots. It is clearly set out with good clear photographs and instructions so it is useful for beginners and intermediates alike.

Read this book on the train and practice at home during February & March when the shore fishing in this country is shocking. Just knowing two or three of the knots and rigs in this book will improve your fishing no end. Good knots do not break. You'll keep more fish and have more confidence in your casting.

The second section of the book concerns bait. What to look for and how to hook and present it. Again a couple of tips learned and practiced will enhance your fishing no end. You will learn what to look for in the tackle shop (and on the beach) so you won't look like a novice when you open up your worms in the tackle shop and say "that's great" as the tackle dealer hands you four day old lug that are about to blow.

A quality book from a quality publication house. Look out for more Anger's Mail titles. Please note that I have found some of the fish specific titles a bit dated but there are, none the less, full of great advise.

Without doubt one of the best idiots guides for novices to learn about Sea Fishing. Not only is the text easy to read but there are plenty of step by step visuals to show you how to tie knots and rigs. Still keep revisiting the book on a weekly basis for further tips. An absolute must for the beginner!
