    The Complete Guide to Freshwater Fishing fits my bill very nicely. The book is divided into neat chapters on gear, rigging, and the common types of freshwater fish found in North American lakes and streams.

    Each of the “fish chapters” (trout, bass, pike, etc.) has an impressive discourse on the fish itself, its habits, habitation, and how and where to best catch them.

    The gear and tackle chapters teach all one needs to know about the different types of bait, lures, flies, knot-tying and other mechanics of the sport which are necessary if one is going to do more than catch sunnies with bread-balls.

    Well written in short, clear prose, the book is fabulously illustrated with color pictures, charts, graphs, maps and other visuals which really explain both fish and fishing.

    This is an excellent guide for both new and experienced fresh water fishers.

    Although it says it’s a Complete Guide, I didn’t find it so. There is a level of assumed knowledge. So if you’re a beginner, like me, skip this book and find something more basic.
    Specifically, it doesn’t show how to thread a rod/reel; it doesn’t show how to connect up sinkers, spinners, hooks, etc in the combinations you need for each type of fishing; and it doesn’t describe how to do certain types of fishing — it just names them and moves on.
    It’s also not specific enough for the region you live in. It’s a wide overview of the types of Freshwater fish found in the US, but it doesn’t break it down by region. Try to find a local guidebook for the types of fish in your specific area instead.

    This review is from: The Complete Guide to Freshwater Fishing (The Freshwater Angler) (Hardcover)

    I was looking for a book that covered all freshwater fish species. I am mostly a bass & panfish fisherman, but I do get occasional opportunities to angle for something else. I wanted a book that would allow me to read a chapter on a specific type of fish and know some good lure types and tactics to try if such an opportunity arose. Overall, this book does a good job at meeting those requirements. On a few of the species the lure information seemed a little sparse and some of the information on tactics was information that was already talked about earlier in the same chapter. Some of the tactics also specified the use of a boat/fish finder, which may not work the best if you are fishing from shore or a canoe/kayak. The book covers most freshwater gamefish species found in the US(bass, walleye, trout, etc), but I would also have liked to have seen a chapter on non-gamefish (carp, gar, etc). Overall a recommended book.

    This review is from: Fabulous Fake Rubber Fish (Misc.)

    It’s life sized with vibrant colors, but no one’s going to mistake it for being real. But for my 8 yr old son who loves fish, it was perfect. He pretends it’s real. I wish the company made different varieties and made a fake fishing pole so that he could play fish. Excellent for the price and shipping was quick.

    I am a photographer in Melbourne, Florida. I needed a fish for my son’s photoshoot. Go to the link below to see pictures of the fish and how I used it as a prop at Space Coast Image, LLC

    For a bigger view of the fish go to this link……

    This fish is not hard plastic. It’s made of rubber with some sort of stuffing on the inside. I would say the fish is about 12 inches.

    I used this rubber fish for a gag and it worked out great. If you put it in lake water however it floats it will not sink on it’s own. For our gag however it was perfect. Very good replica and detail.
