Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Bonita Herold
Anyone can fish. Add some bait to a hook and choose a likely location—the fish will come. Long ago, people used to turn bones into hooks and vines into lines. Of course, equipment and techniques have become more refined and varied through the years. One of the most challenging techniques involves fly-fishing. The back and forth motion of the cast takes practice, but the initial practice takes guidance. Readers will find this guidance in “Chapter 3: Tips and Techniques.” Like other sports, fly-fishing involves a sensible approach to safety. Common guidelines include wearing sunglasses and sunblock. Waders should fit appropriately because if water enters the boot, the excess weight could prove dangerous. Finally, hooks are potentially harmful so one should avoid hooking anyone other than a fish! Like the other books in the series “Into the Great Outdoors,” this one shines with information and is beautifully presented. Middle grade science teachers would do well to add this series to their bookshelves. Reviewer: Bonita Herold; Ages 8 to 14.
