Naughty or nice--you'll fall in the water if you're not careful!

Think before you buy a fishing book

October 14th 2012 02:48
When it's too cold to go to your favorite fishing hole, getting down with a good book about fishing can be the next best thing. Sadly, books on fishing usually range in quality from those with plenty of pretty pictures but little useable information to invaluable guides on catching a specific kind of fish that some people use as a bible while others' eyes glaze over.

Some fishing books cover a pretty big variety of species and often then cover a lot of territory. There's nothing wrong with these books if you new to angling! In fact, books of this nature probably provide the good basic info you need.

Nobody can determine if Shakespeare fished. What about Henry David Thoreau?

William Shakespeare
So, did Shakespeare fish? Most people have never thought about it but certain scholars have pondered the question for some time.

It has been noted that Shakespeare mentions fish or fishing 200 times in his works. Pike is alluded to in The Merry Wives of Windsor, tickling trout pops up in Twelfth Night, and carp are noted in Hamlet.

I finally read Jaws

It's a few decades too late but I finally read the novel JAWS.

The book
If you enjoy reading, books on which movies are based are often better than the movie or, at the very least, help illuminate minor characters or plot points. Sad to say, that's not the case here.

Make your own trailers

April 28th 2011 01:03
A while back, a touring professional angler told me he never used a spinner bait without a trailer.

In case you don't know what a trailer is, when it comes to fishing, it's an additional enticement you can put on a spinner bait hook to draw in fish.

More fishing books

September 30th 2008 00:12
I usually don't buy fishing books because people often give them to me as gifts. Here are a few I've received lately.

Field & Stream Tackle Care and Repair Handbook
The first book I want to highlight is the FIELD & STREAM TACKLE CARE and REPAIR HANDBOOK. This book is pretty handy and can be a real life saver! Rather than reading from cover to cover, you may want to look upon this book as a reference guide. The care of rods, reels, AND accessories such as waders and nets is covered.
