Overview


From the most trusted brand in outdoor sports, Field & Stream, this book fills a market gap in the same way the strong-selling Total Outdoorsman (200,000 copies in print) has done. Easy-to-use advice from the world’s top fishermen and fishing guides will enlighten and delight everyone from experienced fly-fishermen to deep-sea anglers to parents looking to catch that first fish with their kid.

While the market has a number of successful fishing books, there’s nothing out there like this. Much as the Total Outdoorsman revolutionized outdoor recreation titles, this book brings a whole new level of design and content expertise to one of America’s most popular pastimes.

Packed with insider tips and tricks from the world’s top fishermen, and lavishly illustrated with handy step-by-step how-tos and beautiful photographs, The Total Fishing Manual covers fishing in ponds, lakes, rivers, and streams, as well as the wide and yet underserved world of saltwater fishing. Hints cover everything from how to properly put a worm on your hook (it’s harder than you think to do it right!) to how to nab the best spot on a big-bucks party fishing boat, and land the fish of your dreams.

Fish stories? This book has them! And soon, the reader will be able to regale friends with his or her own takes . . . not of the one that got away, but the one that didn’t.

    When it comes to fishing, anglers typically want to get the info

    When it comes to fishing, anglers typically want to get the information they need quickly -- knot tying or the common rig for bottom fishing bluegill. This book does provide the information you need quickly without the filler found in many other books of its kind. Covers a lot of areas and educates you as you read. Good investment of your time and money.

    This book explained in clear terms and pictures rigging and techniques that are useful and practical to the everyday fisherman. Have fished for trout but was not as familiar with bass and pan fish. Found this text very helpful. The illustrations are great and plan on keeping it around for my kids and grandkids.

    The chapters on where to fish and how to read structure are very helpful. The chapters on different fish and what lures they bite are also very helpful. Using the information on how to read the water and what lure to use, I selected a fishing spot and landed a bass within 5 minutes.

    This book would make a great addition to others you may have. This book lives up to the book description and delivers an entertaining read that is refreshingly new. I highly recommend it to all who are interested in fishing.
