    Wow! This Book Has It All!

    Many books call themselves "complete" or "ultimate", but have troulbe living up to the name. Not so with THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO FRESHWATER FISHING. This book covers it all from equipment to species identification to fishing strategies to live bait to artificial lures, including fly fishing lures. What I appreciated the most in this book is the incredible color photography that is prevalent throughout the book. This book is as beautiful as it is practical. Other books may provide more in-depth information on a specific topic - such as fly-fishing - but I have not seen another book on the market that covers freshwater fishing in North America as completely as this book does. For anyone who likes to fish or wants to start, this is the first book that should be in every fisherman's library.
