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.
