“Here is a really comprehensive fishing book, covering all types of fishing in Australia, whether freshwater or saltwater, and based on wide practical experience, a knowledge of conditions and available equipment at the present time, and a deep appreciation of the art of angling.  After discussing the gear required for the different forms of fishing – boat, pier, rock, surf river, fly, and spinner – the author takes each species of fish individually, describing its habits and the best methods of catching it.  He does not confine himself to a few of the best-known kinds, as many experts do; his aim has been to present a full and complete survey of Australian fish from the angler’s point of view.  The trout heads the list, followed by the other freshwater fish, including the carp, the redfin, the Australian bass, barramundi, and eels.   Then come the many varieties of saltwater fish, with their wide range of size and habits, from the delicate whiting to the big-game fighters.  Detailed tackle and bait guides are given for both freshwater and saltwater groups.”
