About the book

When it comes to fishing in Canada and beyond, nobody knows more than the writers and editors at Field & Stream magazine--unless it's the local guides, lifelong ice-fishermen, and other regional experts they interviewed to create this book. With a focus on the fish and fishing techniques Canadians love best, this special edition of the top-selling manual covers everything from flyfishing for tiger trout, splake, and cutbow to special techniques when fishing the Arctic circle, and much, much more. Detailed items break down how to build the ultimate tackle box and the best bait and lures for the wealth of species you’ll find in Canada’s waters, as well as techniques to catch all of the most popular gamefish, and tactics for fishing ponds, rivers, lakes, and oceans in every season and every province. Whether you're a weekend angler looking to hook your kid on fishing or a serious sport fisher looking for the best fishing season ever, this book has the information you need, presented with tons of color photos and handy illustrations.

My Thoughts

As I was at a local grocery store with one of my sons, I saw this book while going back to our vehicle.   I flipped through the pages and saw that my husband will find it very interesting.   So as I walked with my son I decided to try to get the book to review on my blog.   During the summer time, we love to go fishing and my husband loves to learn new tips and tricks.  I have given him other fishing books in the past but this one is the first one that I see the words Canadian Edition on it.   I knew that the book has been adapted for Canadian fishing.

As soon as I got the book, I started flipping through it and let me tell you that ANYONE can learn quite a few tricks from this book – whether you are the fisherman in the family, the wife who enjoys spending time on the boat and fish a bit or the child who is learning alongside dad and mom.   Already I have learned a couple of tricks on catching worms or becoming a worm farmer.   These ideas are inspiring and I think worth trying out.     Every once in a while throughout the book you will be able to find some Know Your sections which present information on specific fish that can be caught in Canada.    

The book is packed with over 333 skills that you can develop while fishing.  Each one of them has a stunning picture and sometimes illustration to show you how to execute the skill.   This book will highlight tools, techniques and tactics to develop while fishing.   From lures to reel as well as how to catch trout and catfish, the book will definitively help you become a better fisherman or fisherwoman in the future.  The tips and tricks found in this book will help you catch numerous kind of fish from bass to walleye as well as trout.    

The more I peruse the book the more I realize that this book is a jewel in itself.   It is packed with wonderful information on fishing in Canada based on the tools used, the techniques to develop and the tactics to take in order to catch amazing fish.   I am quite excited about the book and think it’s a great book to have along with you when you go fishing.   It is perfect for the well-seasoned fisherman or the beginner one.   I know that my husband as well as my boys will devour it with their eyes in order to learn new things about fishing.

The Total Fishing Manual Canadian Edition is available at your favourite bookstore, even amazon.ca and amazon.com.
