A new approach for New Zealand anglers
Despite what some anglers think, there are still fish around our coasts. But there harder to find and harder to catch. Modern conditions demand a modern approach: fishing as a quality rather than a quantity experience in a word, sportfishing.
Sportfishing can be enjoyed, says the author, by "everyone fishing off jetties, rocks and beaches, or out of dinghies and runabouts, All that is needed is a little knowledge, and that is where this 1)00k comes in."
It offers comprehensive advice on the techniques new to New Zealand with jigs, lures, the saltwater fly and ultra light tackle. It tells you how to make your own 10(15 to save money and suit your needs, and how ((1 find and then catch your fish. There are chapters too on groundbaiting, bait gathering, neglected fish Species, boats and trolling, and some of the problems which arise at sea.
Sam Mossman has been fishing for twenty five years and writing about it for ten. He has much to say, and says it authoritatively yet readably and with great good humour. All anglers will find this the most important book on their sport to have emerged for years.
