Product Description

Review

'best described as a classic....the finest book ever written on bass fishing' Angler's Mail 'one of the finest books about the species....rarely fails to provide answers to all those tricky questions that bass require anglers to solve' Sea Angler 'It had me spellbound from the first chapter, with its chunks of tale-telling followed by snippets of useful information. If you have any interest at all in bass, this book is the most modern reference available.' The Angling Times 'Anglers new to bass angling and those who are already experienced will find this a very useful book to add to their collection.' Sea Fishing

Format: Hardcover
This book succeeds where others fail is it concentrates on a single subject, Shore fishing for Sea Bass as opposed to attempting to cover the wider and more general area of Sea Fishing. Well written and illustrated with the authority earned by their qualifications and immense experience of this subject.
Concise detail of all aspects relating to habitat, best conditions, venues and methods employed to catch this King of our shore. Their love of and dedication to the sport shines through in every paragraph.
Fishermens tales, without exageration, that hold you to the pages. Logical thinking and years of experience imparted in a manner that cannot fail to leave you more learned and understanding of this great Fish.
One book I'll be reluctant to lend out because of its value.

For beginner and old hand this book covers a wide aspect of Bass fishing around the UK. Helpful advise and tips about rigs, baits and where and when to catch, injected with some humour and fisherman tales. If you get nothing else from this book, which i am sure will not be the case, you may have a chuckle to yourself. Informative with some very good pictures as well. Potentially this will become the Bass fishers bible.

Bass are very exciting fish to hunt and these two chaps have spent a longtime doing just that. Their wide and keen experience has been collatedinto a book that is enjoyable to read, written in frank terms, angler toangler. This is definately the type of specialised book that the dedicatedshore fisherman must have on the shelf. A wealth of knowledge. Tales arewell written.

Returning to bass fishing after twenty years or more I found this a very valuable source to update my knowledge. Well and sensibly written without an excess of the hype that clutters most current fishing books.

Provides excellent well presented information that I have been able to put into practice.

Well worth the money for anyone who fishes for bass but is not yet an expert (or will admit it!)

I bought this book because I had read some good reviews. I wasn't disappointed. The book has lots of practical advice on catching bass as well as information on their life cycle and feeding habits (which inform the methods/tactics employed when trying to catch them). The two authors, between them, have a lifetime's experience of fishing for bass in particular and they convey their adventures colourfully. This is another great plus for the book - it is well written, in a way that inspires the imagination as well as the urge to go out and try to catch one!

Format: Hardcover
I have recently turned to fishing for bass from the shore with some success. This book was an enjoyable read and will help me to find new hot spots and hopefully catch a lot more. It was especially helpfull in its description of bass holding areas on shallow rocky shores, how they behave and different methods of catching them. This will all be so usefull as the area I fish is not known as a bass area so very little fishing is done for them and there are few if any known hot spots.

The book arrived with a crumpled cover due to forced packing,
I was disappointed to see some photographs in black and white and thought that the book was out of date by 20 years and needed a severe rewrite.
I haven't gained much from the book.... sorry !
