Editorial Reviews

Wisconsin Natural Resources - Kathryn A Kahler
FISH OF WISCONSIN FIELD GUIDE by Dave Bosanko, Adventure Publications, Cambridge, MN, 170 pages, $12.95.

Anglers will love this waterproof guide to 76 Wisconsin fish. The book fits easily in a jacket pocket or tacklebox. To identify a catch, start by matching it to one of the family silhouettes in the table of contents. From the family entries, pick the species from a series of two-page spreads that include color illustrations, keys to distinguish your fish from similar species, other common names and natural history information like habitat, range, food, reproduction, average 'size and state records. There's a nice glossary and the index is cross-referenced so if you know your fish by another name, you can easily find its scientific name. The author prefaces the book with illustrations of fish anatomy, photos of fish diseases, frequently asked questions and interesting fish facts like how to estimate your fish's weight if you know its length and girth. Looking for a unique Valentine gift for your favorite angler? This is it!

    I bought this for both my Husband and my Brother. It is very informative and the pictures are great! My brother especially liked it because he works for the DNR as fish specialist and it gives both the scientific and Common name. It's also waterproof! A must have for all fishermen!
