50 Fish to Catch Before You Die by John Bailey

This is a stunning illustrated guide to the 50 greatest catches in world angling.It offers a fresh and unique approach to a popular pastime, written by celebrated and bestselling author John Bailey. It is written in a very accessible style with a global perspective to appeal to anglers throughout the world. It is complete with a foreword by fishing fanatic and Who Wants to be a Millionaire presenter Chris Tarrant.Aimed at the practical and armchair angler alike, this stunning illustrated title lists and explores 50 of the world's most amazing and challenging fish, offering an insight into each variety and revealing the skills and techniques required to catch them.Multi-layered in its scope and as much an aspirational travelogue as a source of helpful advice, this global exploration covers the world's best fishing in all forms of the sport - including still and running freshwater, estuaries, coastlines and open sea.Written by John Bailey, a celebrated and highly respected angling author, who has fished in over 60 countries and for thousands of species, the true hook with this title is its fresh and unique approach to a popular pastime which will appeal as much to the experienced fishermen, who may have already netted a number of the fish, as it will to those new to the sport who have dreams of catching them all.
