How Fish Work

How Fish Work Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

By the very nature of what they do, fisherman are scientists. Many scientific principles are used when they fish for their species of interest. Dr. Scholseth shares these principles in an entertaining and easy to follow way that is sure to increase the angler's success. He discusses: the effect of different kinds of light on fish; the senses and behavior of fish; the predator/prey relationship; strike responses; handling fish; creating a field guide; how the placement of your lure or fly looks to fish; how to design more effective fly patterns; and more. You'll find everything you need to understand and appreciate the species for which you fish. The more you understand your quarry, the better you will do. This is a truly unique, one-of-a-kind book for anglers, biologists, and anyone else with an interest in the biology of fish.
