    A wealth of fishing knowledge

    I've learned a wealth of fishing knowledge and information from this book. I believe any anglers from beginners to experts can learn something about where fish live, what they eat, their location, what type of baits to use in certain situations etc etc. I am an angler who fishes any time whatsoever I have during spring, summer, and fall. I learned where fish are during these times and tactics in which to use well fishing for them. I believe reading this in the offseason (I live in Pennsylvania where the lakes freeze in winter) will greatly improve my fish catching abilty when the lakes unfreeze. Anyone, a weekend angler pro or like me should read this book.
