The Fisherman's Oceanby David A. Ross
Synopses & Reviews
Tides, currents, fish senses and behavior Reading Dave Ross's work will give you in-depth knowledge of the ocean, its processes, and marine fish, which can only make you a better saltwater angler.
--Joe Healy editor, Saltwater Fly Fishing
Here at last, in layman's terms, is a fisherman's guide to the habitat and behavior of saltwater fish. The author, an oceanographer and avid fly fisherman, explains the marine environment and the factors that affect where game fish congregate, how they move with tides and currents, what they see, smell, taste, and hear. The copiously illustrated text covers inshore and offshore habitat and will prove invaluable to anyone who fishes in saltwater, whether in the surf, on the flats, or out at sea. The ocean is vast. It pays to be educated.
Marine science for fishermen. A veteran oceanographer explains tides, currents, fish senses and behavior, how to fish in estuaries, the surf, offshore.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 286-288) and index.
