From the cover: No matter what he is fishing for, every angler needs a bait. He may substitute a pole for a rod or a bent pin for a hook, but if he has no bait on the hook he might as well pack up and go home.
Baits, therefore, are perhaps the most vital part of the anglers armoury, and consequently any book on the subject naturally becomes a valuable contribution to angling literature. Bill Howes, a fisherman and writer of no little experience, discusses a comprehensive range of baits both common and uncommon, together with methods of obtaining, using, colouring and preserving them. Illustrated throughout, Freshwater Fishing Baits is a book which no angler should be without.
