Fishing for Dummies by Peter Kaminsky

About this product

Product Information
No one can promise that you will catch fish all the time. Fish, after all, would just as soon never taste a hook or feel the sizzle of a frying pan. For as long as we have been catching fish, fish have also been outsmarting us. “That’s why they call it fishing and not catching,” goes the old saying. This book will help you fish, and it will help you catch, too. No matter how much you know, there are still a couple of tricks that even the oldest angler can pick up. For those of you who have never fished, you will find enough in this book to get you started. You don’t have to learn everything all at once. If you are already an angler, there are plenty of tips and techniques that you can turn to right away without going through the basics all over again. And you master anglers will also find this book a handy reference for all kinds of fishing questions. Once you have a few basic pointers, fishing is as easy as falling off a log (which is something you want to avoid, as the splash will scare the fish). Fishing For Dummies will show you how to orchestrate all of your equipment into a fine-tuned fish-catching machine. You’ll soon know all about Your fishing equipment, from the rod in your hand to the hook on the very end of the line The fish that people fish for, what they look like, and where they’re found The basics of bait-casting, spinning, and fly-casting Fighting, landing, and releasing fish Storing, cleaning, and cooking fish Fishing is a great joy and a lifetime sport. You will find that there are successful fishing days and unsuccessful fishing days, but there is no such thing as a bad fishing day. This book can make fishing easier and more rewarding for you every time you pick up your rod and reel.
