One of the many joys of fishing is being able to enjoy the sweet tranquillity of sitting on a quiet lake shore, watching the occasional ripple from the swing and drop of your fishing line and sinker. This enjoyment quickly sours after hours of biting mosquitoes and no fish on the hook. So what do you do to get those fish interested? You'll find plenty of sage advice in this compendium of freshwater fishing wisdom. Seasoned fisherman Harold Blaisdell shares the secrets he's discovered over years of catching trout, bass, salmon, pickerel, pike...you name it, he's caught it. Here you'll find tips for catching trout with worms or minnows and fooling them with dry flies; making the most of each cast by minimizing drag time; scoring bigger trout with spinning techniques; attracting lake salmon with wet flies; making home-made decoys for ice fishing; and much more!
