Overview

Ken Schultz's Fishing Encyclopedia "Ours is the grandest sport. It is an intriguing battle of wits…and in addition to appreciating the tradition and grace of the game, we play in the magnificent out-of-doors." —Ernest G. Schwiebert, Jr. For author Ken Schultz, this book is the culmination of a lifetime of fishing. Schultz, an editor at Field & Stream for 26 years, has written the seminal guide to angling around the world. Working with over 100 expert contributors and two renowned natural artists, Schultz has compiled the only comprehensive and up-to-date body of fishing information available today. With more than 2,000 entries and 1,400 illustrations, Ken Schultz's Fishing Encyclopedia is the most complete book on sportfishing—both freshwater and saltwater. Entries cover fishing equipment and tackle, techniques,species, and a broad number of related topics including boating and conservation. No other book on fishing today rivals the scope of Ken Schultz's Fishing Encyclopedia. More than 500 fish species are described in detail and hundreds of entries discuss tackle and fishing equipment along with specific techniques for a myriad of angling conditions. More than 170 countries and regions are reported on by experts who live and fish there every day. Technological and conservation advances over the last 30 years have led to tremendous changes in angling as a sport and a recreation, but many of its most time-honored traditions have been maintained. This book is the sum of all that change—and all that tradition. From modern catch-and-release techniques to classic fly-casting, this book is the new Bible for anglers the world over.
