By the very nature of what they do, anglers are scientists. Many scientific principles are used when they fish for their species of interest. In How Fish Work, Dr. Tom Sholseth shares these principles in an entertaining and easy-to-follow way that is sure to increase the angler's fishing success. In this book, Sholseth discusses: "scientific angling;" angler characteristics; the aquatic environment in which they fish; equipment; effect of different kinds of light on fish; the senses and behaviors of fish; the predator/prey relationship; strike responses; handling fish; creating a field guide; how the placement of your lure or fly looks to fish; how to design more effective fly patterns; everything you need to understand and appreciate the species for which you fish. The more an angler understands their quarry, the better he or she will do. This is a truly unique, one-of-a-kind book for anglers, biologists, and anyone else with an interest in the biology of fish. Thanks to Tom Sholseth's scientific approach to understanding fish and their habits and behaviors, you will bring more fish to your line.
