This should provide good competition in the how-to-fish market. Very clearly and interestingly written, Mr. Zarchy's work is quite a complete, orderly accumulation of fish knowledge from the fresh water stream to the rolling trolling grounds, from fly casting to squidding in the surf. The technique of whaling is about the only perceptible omission. Lure, lore and love of fishing are often woven into the text as the author instructs in proper rod flipping, describes the best lakes, and inlets, records matches in trout and salmon. Already well known for books on camping and handicrafts, his hits the spot again as an inducer and problem solver.
