Curising In Isolated Parts Of The World? Don't Forget It,
This review is from: The Cruiser's Handbook of Fishing (Hardcover)
I have done quite a bit of crusing, fishing and diving but I always wanted to learn how to clean and prepare the fish myself. The book gave some very good insight into this but I didn't think it was detailed enough. The books starts out with the basics of fishing while crusing and then on to every theme possible: 1.) Fishing under power or sail 2.) Gear and Tackle (excellent drawings for knot tying) 3.)Offshore Trolling 4.)Adrift or Anchored 5.)Dingy Techniques 6.) Walking, Wading and Diving 7.) Tools and Nets 8.) Arranging your vessel for fishing 9.) Processing your catch 10.) Medical Considerations for the Crusing Fisher 11.) Getting the most from your new crusing skill 12.) A guide to Edible Fish and Invertebrates ( would be much better in color as I have not seen many fish come up black and white) 13.) Seafood recepies
If you are planning any type of crusing for a longer period of time. This is an absolute must have. A transatlantic or gulf stream crossing can sometimes get boring and knowing these skills take out a lot of the intimidation a lot of us have about fishing and cleaing our own catch.
