Tales from the Riverbank by John Bailey
Offering an insight into the natural history of fishing, this book concentrates on the behaviour and body language of Britain's most popular freshwater species and shows how an understanding of fish behaviour can make a fisherman more successful. Each chapter focuses on the natural history of one species and provides advice for anglers, such as explanations of how and why particular baits work. Information boxes highlight points in the text and feature significant facets of fish behaviour. The book also explores the relationship between the fisherman and his quarry in some of Britain's most beautiful fishing locations.
