THE FISH OF PENNSYLVANIA
FIELD GUIDE
DAVE BOSANKO
Ever caught a fish and not known what to call it? This field guide by fisherman and biologist Bosanko could help. It's one of a series that includes a book for each of eight states so far. Targeted to anglers and anyone who's curious, each guide includes color illustrations and descriptions for more than 75 species. Minnow, pike, salmon, and sunfish make appearances in the pocket-sized, waterproof guides. For each For each species, the guides also discuss habitat, range, reproductive behavior, and other, similar-looking fish. The New York entry on the grass pickerel, for example, notes that while this species has a bar under its eye, the northern pike does not. Each book also includes record-setting catches for each fish, so anglers can compare their catches to the best. The largest rainbow trout caught so far in North America weighed 42 pounds. If you pull in a whopper like that, you can brag and have the numbers to prove it! Adventure Publications, 2008, 192 color illus:paperback, $13.95.
