The next five years will see a massive national drive on the part of the Angling Trust and the Environment Agency to get everyone out there fishing, from inner cities to remote villages, from local ponds and upland steams to beaches.
This colourful, lively book is aimed at complete beginners of all ages, and those who have been out fishing a couple of times and want to take it further.
It outlines what you need to know to experience the joy of getting out there, alone or with family and friends, and enjoying a day or an afternoon fishing – and catching, whether it’s mackerel, pike or trout.
The book is endorsed by the Angling Trust and their Get Fishing campaign. It has everything a beginner would need to know about the basics: species, tackle, bait, tactics and watercraft.
