History, Biology, Locations, Tackle, Techniques
Saltwater fishing in Australia is a recreation that one in every two Australians indulges in at least once in their lifetime. Millions of those then move on to fish more regularly, and along the way experience the fun and excitement of fishing, the thrill of catching and fighting a fish and, of course, on occasions the delights of having some to eat.
This book is the culmination of many expert anglers - all of whom write for the popular AFN Magazine Groupincluding 'Freshwater Fishing Australia', 'Sport Fishing', 'Yak Fisher', 'Flyfisher' and 'SportFish DVD' magazine. Virtually everyone who fishes knows Gary Brown, Geoff Wilson, Bill Classon, Nigel Webster, Leeann Payne, Andrew McGovern, Warren Keelan and Brenton Hodges either through their informative magazine articles or the books and DVDs that they have been involved in.
It is designed to get anglers out on the water catching fish. It does so by covering our most popular species and detailing the tackle, techniques and skills required to catch them. Precise descriptions, diagrams and colour photos make understanding the technical aspects easy. With the explosion in the popularity and success of using hard-bodied lures and soft plastics to catch these species there has been considerable space devoted to those skills.
However, this has not been at the expense of the ever-successful bait fishing techniques and the basics of understanding where and how to find fish.
The book provides both the technical information required to turn an individual into a competent angler and the inspiration for that person to get out on the'water and catch a fish or two.
