Book Description

12 April 2007
From course fishing to wreck fishing and from carp to conger, the New Complete Guide to Fishing Skills is crammed full of practical information on all things fishing. Sections on coarse, trout and sea fishing (both from the shore and by boat) explain the tackle, rigs and baits you will need, as well as describing specific techniques such as legering, fly fishing or trolling. From pike to shark there is also information on the fish themselves and the best methods to use in pursuit of each species. Tony Whieldon s uniquely clear and detailed drawings are combined with explanatory captions that ensure quick and easy access to a wealth of information, whether read at home or at the water's edge.

Product Description

Book Description

The Complete Guide to Fishing Skills is the UK's bestselling fishing book. The new, revised edition includes an extended section on carp, appealing to youngsters and newcomers. Clear, explanatory illustrations and text on every page.

About the Author

Tony Whieldon has been fishing since boyhood. He grew up in an area of trout streams and country estate lakes, so it is hardly surprising that he was bitten by the fishing bug so early. His favourite pursuits include fly fishing for trout, float fishing for roach and tench and trying to outwit grey mullet. Over the years, he has produced a wealth of illustrations for fishing magazines and books as well as privately commissioned paintings.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book for a beginner and expert 17 Sep 2010
I read this book as a child and remember how fascinating it was. Now as an adult I find it equally interesting and informative.
The book tells you just what you need to know and the majority of information is put across in wonderful diagrams accompanied with short descriptions, so it's really easy to read and use as a reference.
It really is a great book for anyone who's new to fishing, and I think experts will also pick up the occasional useful tip.

3.0 out of 5 stars definitely not for beginners 24 April 2014
By gille liath TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Seems that few of these reviewers, if any, have tried to learn to fish from this book - they either bought it for others or have already started angling. I found it incredibly irritating to be faced in the first couple of pages with terms like coarse, float, and leger fishing, with absolutely no explanation of what they mean. There's almost nothing about how to get started. Whieldon suggests we learn to fish from a club, and learn about tackle from a shop. In that case, what do we need you for mate?

In short, it's not for absolute beginners. The non-information is beautifully presented, though.

5.0 out of 5 stars hooked! 31 Jan 2010
I purchased this book two days ago to use with a group of 14yrs-17yrs to learn fishing. It is well presented and a brilliant book to inspire and inform young people who do not want to read. The text is pleasantly styled as a handwriiten journal and the illustrations in b&w are of a high standard, clear and user-friendly. Well done to Tony Whieldon, author. All my group need now are the rods....
