Instantly acquire all the knowledge you need to pass as an expert in the world of ?shing, with The Bluffer’s Guide to Fishing. Know what to say, what not to say, what to do on the water, what to do in the water, and what excuses to make if you can’t put a lugworm on a hook or take a 12lb rainbow off one. Never again confuse a bone?sh with a kipper, a PVA bag with a popper, or a gozzer with a Hairy Mary. Bask in the admiration of your fellow ?shermen as you pronounce con?dently on the comparative literary merits of Izaak Walton, Ernest Hemingway, Paul Torday, and JR Hartley. Above all, know exactly how to hold your own against the sort of ?shing fantasist who claims that he once wrestled a 200lb Giant Trevally into submission on a river bank in outer Mongolia. (Hint: look him in the eye and say: Really? I thought the GT” was more likely to be engaged in combat on a remote Tahitian atoll.’) And never wear a hat saying Wanna see my tackle?’.

This is one of the better Bluffer’s Guides out there. It is riveting, funny, and extremely educational. Even three chapters in, I wanted to head out to a fishing shop, buy everything, and head up to Scotland to go salmon fishing. I remember going fishing with my dad at the local pond but I never knew much beyond shoving the piece of chicken on the hook and flinging the string as far out into the water as possible (as an eight year old, the most I could hope for was a few meters). This book is basically a beginners guide to fishing. It tells you about the poles, the bait, the location. It even lets you know about the different societies you should join depending on the kind of fishing you want to do. Not only is it full of great information, Beattie has a wonderfully dry sense of humor that makes reading about bait shops an absolute riot. I would recommend this book to anyone, not just to new fishers but the experts and even those who have never thought they had an interest in the sport.

Pleasure fishing

A great read. Funny, entertaining and informative. As well as being incredibly​ knowledgeable on the subject, Rob Beattie has a skill at throwing out pithy one-liners. I particularly enjoyed his assertion that “tackle shop owners tend towards the chronically miserable.”

Another GREAT Bluffer’s guide!
