." Dr. Mark Everard has spent a lifetime not only pursuing big fish, but also studying them and their environments across five continents. Dace are Mark's next-favourite species after roach, and his well-known successes include long-standing river Records from both the Hampshire Avon and the Bristol Avon." This book "carries forward Mark's reputation as a well-respected scientist, specimen angler and author." This book "is written with Mark's characteristic wit and enthusiasm for the 'game coarse fish': the often-neglected dace." The book is divided into three sections; The ecology of the dace - the inner world of the dace, what is a dace?, dace ecology, the senses of dace, reproduction and growth, feeding, predators, diseases and parasites, ecology; Angling for dace - location, bait, presenting the bait to dace, free-line, float, ledger, dace on the fly and lure, fish care, management of a dace fishery, giant bags and whopping great dace, reflections on dace angling; Dace and people - art, literature, fiction, dace on the menu.
