Product Description

About the Author

Paul Duffield describes himself as a ‘traditional angler’. Having been born early in the second half of the 20th century and fished for over 40 years, he is attempting to rediscover and recapture the magic and excitement that he experienced when he first began fishing at 10 years old. A vintage fishing tackle enthusiast and restorer, Paul fishes with cane rods, centrepin reels and quill floats and prefers to spend a few hours on a wild stream to modern stocked stillwaters.

I was really looking forward to this book and its counterpart on sea fish. A clear, concise format and layout with a basic guide to the freshwater fish of the UK. Sadly, having read it right through I wish I'd spent the money on a kebab.

So, what's wrong with it>

1. Full of typos. Spellings, repeated words, missing words and spaces... For such a small word count this is a frankly shocking.

2. Incorrect titling; when giving the scientific name of fish the second name should be italicised.

3. While there is a section at the back for invasive species, non-native species which may better be grouped with these are scattered throughout the book and the inclusion of Walleye is strange to say the least; a non-native fish artificially stocked and last recorded in the 1930's while the burbot, thought extinct since the 1970's in the UK but native is not.

4. Pointless text. With such limited text per species, to use any up writing phrases along the lines of "not deliberately targeted by anglers" "rarely fished for except by very small boys" etc is a waste of it. It would be far more useful to describe better the preferred habitats/diets/suitable hook sizes (seeing as it is an angling book after all).

5.Copy and paste errors. Clearly much use has been made of copy and paste, the most obvious error leading from this being the Zander Fishing methods and baits. It's accepted by everyone else that baits such as herring, mackerel and sprat are rarely, if ever, likely to catch a zander; I could waste days by the riverbank with a bag of sea fish on the strength of this information. In fact the fishing method information given is generally of no use at all.

Very handy ebook, lots of useful info for the angler in the UK, general details and pics for each of the common fish found in the UK rivers, streams and lakes (freshwater course fish). Its not a large tome, but its got all the basics covered.
