Big game angling around Australia. "It is only in recent years that game fishing has begun to take its rightful place among the great pastimes of Australian sportsmen, and books on the subject are few. This is the most comprehensive one yet published in this country. ...Information is given on all aspects of the art of game fishing: gear, baits, tackle, boats, trolling and drifting, playing a fish, taking the trace and gaffing - these preliminaries to landing your fish are discussed in detail. All species of Australian game fish are described, with points and sketches for quick identification. There are chapters on non-game fish and sea-birds that may be encountered by the game fisherman, and other on the fishing grounds of the various States." Included at the end of the book are brief notes on cooking marlin, mako shark and tuna. The foreword is by Max Lawson.
