LRF before it was fashionable. A good introduction to rock and shore-fishing, and light-tackle boat-fishing. "Fishing with light tackle is unlike most other forms of angling, not least for the amount of variety it offers to what might otherwise be considered limited fishing areas. ...Lindsey Green ably demonstrates that the angler who is prepared to try out lighter tackle will experience new fishing to the envy of his conventional contemporaries. ...In this practical and informative guide the author fully conveys his enthusiasm for this unusual form of fishing, covering all types from single-headed baitcasters to carp rods. Outfits used, types of fish, current strength, tackle weights, reels, legering, beachcasters and much more practical information is included together with diagrams of lines, tackle and hooks and clear photographs of the practice and rewards of light-tackle fishing. Specific advice and tuition is offered for young anglers, the particular techniques and equipment needed for headland, beach and natural harbour fishing, pier fishing by night as well as taking to the inshore waters and using light tackle afloat. Above all the author reminds the reader that the tackle needed for this immensely rewarding form of fishing is frequently the cheapest available, adding yet another incentive to read and enjoy this book and then experiment and experience light-tackle fishing". Chapters include:- A sporting chance; Some tackle to start; A fun way to begin; Fishing rocky headlands; Fishing from the beach; Estuaries and natural harbours; Pier fishing at night; Getting afloat; Drifting over sandy marks. The foreword is by Ted Tuckerman.
