Fishing: A Guide to Fresh and Salt-Water Fishing by George S. FichterFishing A Guide to Fresh and Salt Water Fishing

Here is another practical pick…
The “Golden Guide” series from St. Martin’s Press has been around since the late 40’s and is known for its comprehensive coverage on a wide range of nature topics. The fishing guide is no exception. This somewhat updated version (2001) is widely regarded as one of the best all-around guidebooks for the beginner angler. It is compact, easy-to-use and features plenty of nice illustrations. We highly recommend this for newbies or young anglers just learning the craft. It covers the true basics of fishing like: how to identify all kinds of fish, how to select bait and tackle, and even something as basic as how to catch and land a fish. But that’s not all. This book made our list because even experienced anglers can appreciate it. It’s a really useful little book, which makes an excellent quick reference guide for identifying fish species. It’s also useful to anglers fishing waters they may not be familiar with.
