For the young Isaac Walton who wants to know how to catch fish -- whatever the kind of fish or the sort of lure. A how-to-do book minus the personal anecdotes, which will offer a refresher course when it isn't fishing time. There are several unusual features, a whole chapter of knots, on tackle work -- upkeep and care and repair rather than making your own -- and one of the best glossaries to date, called Tackle Terminology. And if you can't afford a license, there are sections on learning to cast so that you'll be ready when the great day comes. An excellent handbook.
