Many anglers successfully hook fish only to lose them after the hook pulls free or the line breaks. The fisherman's first concern is often placing the bait or fly where the fish are feeding, with little thought as to how to land a fish in the happy event that "the big one" is hooked. Fish On! outlines the general rules for playing fish, and investigates those variables, often overlooked, that have a direct impact upon your ability to play fish. Such variables include choice of equipment, the conditions under which you fish, and the particular species of fish you hope to catch. Although the book is directed at those who fish with a fly rod, spin fishermen and plug casters will find the same basic fish-playing principles apply.

When he was still a budding fisherman in the 1950s, Franke was taught that as long as he concentrated on""keeping the rod tip up, keeping the pressure on, and never allowing slack in the line,"" there was little more he needed to do to nab all the fish he wanted.
