'This is the complete book about saltwater gamefishing and sportfishing in the Pacific.  It tells:

  • Where the big fish are - around Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii, Tahiti, Fiji, Samoa, New Caledonia, Tonga, the Cook Islands, the Marshalls and Marianas, Papua and New Guinea
  • What the big fish are - 41 species of gamefish, from the black marlin to the thresher shark, are described and illustrated.
  • How to catch them - the baiting and fishing techniques, the gear that is required and its maintenance.
The book is lavishly illustrated with 23 plates in colour and over 250 in black and white.  Filled at all times with the tang and sparkle of blue water so that you are fishing while you are learning, it is the most comprehensive and authoritative account of Pacific gamefishing ever published.'
