"John Bailey's Complete Guide to Fishing" brings to the fore a deep appreciation of the behaviour of fish. Demonstrating a genuine concern for the environment, as well as a broad knowledge of fishing and a real sense of fun, John Bailey guides the expert and novice alike through all aspects of angling. "John Bailey's Complete Guide to Fishing" covers the philosophy of fishing and the role of the fisherman-naturalist, before considering more practical issues of fishing such as clothing, tackle, permits, bait, flies and much more. The author looks at fly fishing, bait fishing, lure fishing, carp fishing and sea fishing in all its possible variants, giving the kind of detail and encouragement to ensure that all those who participate in this increasingly popular hobby will get the very best out of their fishing. For the keener fisherman, he gives details of clubs and societies throughout the world and further information on planning local, national and international fishing trips. Beautifully illustrated with 300 full-colour photographs (many specially commissioned), this book is guaranteed to give much pleasure and insight to anglers at all levels.
