Every fisherman has his favourite fishing spot and choice of angling fishes. Champion angler Hennie Crous is no exception and, drawing on a lifetime’s experience, has compiled a list of his own top 60 species. Evocative, full-colour photographs of fishermen and their catches, coupled with the author’s passion and enthusiasm, bring the sport vividly to life for anglers of all ages and levels of skill.
For each fish there is a detailed description and labelled illustration, a distribution map, information about size, habits and feeding, detailed fishing techniques required to land a specimen successfully and information about each species’ eating qualities and essential statistics, along with SASSI-coding to promote responsible angling.
