What I need for a good day's fishing is in here somewhere....
What's the secret to a good day's fishing?
Bright sun.
Cool breeze.
Favorite rod and reel.
Tackle box with bobbers,
hooks, and sinkers.
But we haven't gotten
to the secret...yet.
James Prosek, best-selling author of Trout and Fly-Fishing the 41st,tells the story of a good day's fishing in this beautiful picture book, illustrated with the author's own gentle watercolors. For those who want to learn more about how to fish, there's a comprehensive glossary of lures and flies in the back of the book. A Good Day's Fishing will make a fisherman or fisherwoman out of anyone -- even a first-timer.
