What Fish Don't Want You to Know: An Insider's Guide to Freshwater Fishing?

If you want to catch fish and fish like I do then you may like the book What Fish Don't Want You to Know: An Insider's Guide to Freshwater Fishing. If you are like me you will randomly throw on a hook and some Powerbait or a night crawler and then throw it out in the water and hope to get a bite.

I look like I know what I am doing when I go fishing but I struggle at times like a city boy from New York City. Sometimes I catch stuff and sometimes I don't. Usually it is the latter. When I get real desperate to catch a fish I will go and ask the guys who are catching fish what they are using and what kind of jig or set-up they are using. Yes it can hurt the male pride to ask other men how to catch a fish but it is better than going home empty handed. These guys seemingly always know tricks to use to catch fish. Now we can learn many of these tricks with the book What Fish Don't Want You to Know: An Insider's Guide to Freshwater Fishing.

What Fish Don't Want You to Know: An Insider's Guide to Freshwater Fishing is a fun book to read and will truly help you to increase your fishing skills when you are freshwater fishing. This book on fishing can be very informative to even expert fishermen, but is best suited for those who like to fish but suck at it. By reading this book you can be the person that the other guys come to and ask advice on how to catch fish.

There are many books written by great fishermen but rarely do you come across a book such as this one that is not only written by a great fisherman, but the book is written well.

Fishing for Dummies

Most fishing books you can leave lying around your house but for men Fishing for Dummies is one book you do not want any of your friends to see, unless all your friends are metrosexuals. Even then I would not want my friends to see this book at my house. This book is invaluable for new fishermen and fishermen who want to pick up some new tips or techniques. Like all of the Dummies books the book is easy to read, fun, and very informative.

Getting you pole geared up properly is often the hardest part for inexperienced fishermen. Heck even experienced fishermen struggle with setting their fishing poles up properly. If you have ever struggled to rig your rod then you will find this book helpful. If you spend more time adding a hook a worm to your pole then you actually do with the hook and work in the water then you definitely need to at least check this book out from your local library. I am sure they will have it in stock because men are too embarrassed to be seen checking it out so it rarely gets checked out. On the other hand this book will get a lot of use so you might as well go and buy a copy of it so you can take it with you on your weekend fishing adventures. Having the Fishing for Dummies book in your tackle box is an invaluable tool. Just paste on a fake cover so it looks like you are reading about old cars or something manly like that.
