TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 24 May 2010
As a novice sea angler I have been looking for a book that provides a wealth of information but is laid out so that I can find the information easily. I have bought one or two other books but they seem to assume a level of knowledge (that I don't have).

This book - leading on from Hugh F-W's recent fishing TV series, is written by one of his chums - the amusingly named "Nick Fisher". I assume that is his real name?

The book carefully goes through the information you need:
When to go - by season, by tide, or by weather
Where to go - the shore, a boat, a pier, a harbour or off rocks
What to catch - a list of the main fish you are likely to come across (Mackerel, Cod, Mullet etc.)
What to use - rods, reels, lines, baits and lures
How to fish - tying knots, casting
What to do next - killing and cooking
And finally ('cos it's a Hugh F-W book) some recipes.

All the sections are clearly laid out, with useful quick look up tables and excellent photographs of the various fish.

To be fair I haven't put this into practice yet - so I can't prove that their information is correct - but having read through the book, I feel that I already have a better understanding of the subject.
