This is a nice little fishing book. It won't teach you much beyond the basics, but it will give you a good grounding of the fundamentals and will provide a constant pick and flick source of inspiration (due to the simplistic nature and plenty of nice photos). If you're looking for something specialised then look elsewhere, but for an inspirational nibble during the adverts or just to have a good reference on the basics, this is well rounded and easily accessible. If you like DK style and for something more in-depth look for the Encyclopaedia of Fishing by Ian Wood.

An excellent book giving good, basic, information on a wide range of fishing methods on varying waters. Includes coarse, game and sea fishing techniques. The section covering overseas waters shows some mouth-watering possibilities for possible fishing holidays.

Bought this book for my husband as he has just taken up sea fishing - he has a small fishing boat for offshore fishing. Found this book extremely useful with more information than he expected. Would recommend this book for both beginners and experienced fishermen. He loved it.

I brought this book as a returning newbie after fishing many years ago and wanted a book that would give me the basic knowledge on gear and basic ins and outs of the subject. I mainly wanted it for sea fishing but the guide covers all types of fishing and breaks down all the different types of gear you will need from rods to reels and tackle in a fair amount of detail which is very useful and enough to get you going. I imagine there are more concise books covering particular aspects and techniques of the sport in a lot more depth and detail, but for an overall get you started guide this book is well presented and definitely worth getting. I'd also recommend the River cottage sea fishing volume as well.

I found this book very informative and an excellent introduction to fishing. As a beginner to the hobby, I appreciate its simple straightforward approach and it answered the vast majority of my initial questions. The size and stiff jacket of this volume also mean that it is easy to carry in a large pocket or rucsack when you're actually fishing and I've used it at the riverside or on the beach many times for reference to tying fishing knots etc.

This book contains great illustrations and is well written. I was so impressed that I bought a second copy for a friend who began fishing at the same time as myself. I seriously recommend it for beginners.
