How to Tempt a Fish: A Complete Guide to Fishing (Popular Mechanics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Filled with more fishing lore than one angler could amass in a lifetime, here is a classic volume that could come only from the editors of Popular Mechanics. Originally published in 1950, How to Tempt a Fish draws its knowledge from expert fishermen of all stripes—fly, lake, surf, deep-sea, and even ice fishing enthusiasts.

Unique in that it covers so many aspects of one of Americas favorite individual sports (there are at least 44 million people who fish in the United States alone), it offers insider advice that has stood the test of time. Among the topics covered in wonderful classic black-and-white line illustrations are: fly casting, bait casting, and salt-water fishing; gathering and using live bait; caring for your rods; tying knots and splices; and retrieving lost lures and lines. Theres also guidance on when and where to fish; how to fish through the ice; how to mount your own prize

catches; how to stock a fish pond; how to cook in camp, and so much more.

Plus, there are the many tips that beginner and expert alike will find ingenious: how to make an inflatable life preserver for your tackle box so it wont get lost if it falls out of the boat, or fashion a tangle-proof case for fishing flies from an old piece of garden hose. All the information remains valid for todays fishing hobbyists.

Redesigned and repackaged using the terrific original illustrations, this is the perfect gift for every fishing fan.
