The Essential Fishing Books

Salt Water Fishing Tactics

The difference between a fishermen who has occasionally successful fishing trips and an angler who routinely reels in big fish is more than a matter of luck. What seperates the two is knowledge and skill. While honing your skills on the water is by far the best method to improve, not everyone has the patience and time to spend years developing their fishing techniques. A far quicker and more effective method to dramatically increase the quantity, size, and frequency of you catches is to gain the required knowledge is through books on fishing tactics and techniques. We've assembled some of the most respected and authoritative fishing books ever published below. Each fishing book contains lifetimes of knowledge that can really make an immediate improvement on your next fishing trip. Understanding what you know, accepting what you don't know, and a willingness to actively pursue more knowledge is the real secret in every successful angler's tacklebox.
