Publisher Comments:

For a generation, the Basic Illustrated series has been as much a part of the outdoors experience as backpacks and hiking boots. Information-packed tools for the novice or handy references for the veteran, these volumes distill years of knowledge into affordable and portable books. Whether youre planning a trip or thumbing for facts in the field, Basic Illustrated books tell you what you need to know.

Before you hook yet another clump of weeds, take heart with Basic Illustrated Freshwater Fishing, a quick-reading, picture-driven guide to fishing for all ages. This reference guides you to becoming a capable and knowledgeable angler, beginning with the basics. It presents all the essentials of fishing, using various kinds of tackle, for a variety of freshwater species. Step-by-step full-color photo sequences and information-packed, clearly worded instructions are the hallmarks of this definitive resource.

This book features need-to-know skills, including:

* How to cast

* Choosing bait

* Lures, lines, and tackle

* Identifying fish and learning their feeding habits

* Choosing a boat
