This volume is no more ``complete'' than any other similarly titled, but it is a pleasantly informative work by two veteran fishing writers. The species-by-species arrangement compactly details the authors' accumulated experience in angling for upwards of 17 kinds of freshwater fish commonly sought across North America. Basic skill is assumed throughout, and this volume is of less value to the novice than to the practicing angler traveling to unfamiliar waters. Happily absent are recipes and other items often used to flesh out such comprehensive volumes. A nice supplement to angling collections.-- David J. Panciera, Westerly P.L., R.I.
