Ultimate Fishing Adventures

I received my copy a couple of weeks ago and have spent many an evening since reading through the pages and looking at the lively action photos. This book really catches the imagination of any angler be it from sea to freshwater from fly fishing to lure or bait fishing the book has something for everyone.

As you flick through the pages and read about far off destinations you can imagine yourself standing in that fishery hooking into the fish that are described. My only problem is getting the time and money to go and fish these marvelous destinations.  We can all dream though can’t we.

As the title states the book is divided into 100 destinations with two pages for each one which are arranged with text and photos. On the left page there is a small map and some information on the best times to go, fishing methods, getting there and tips and tricks.
