This book is such a help. It has a whole chapter explaining almost every type of fish. It will also tell you lots about different baits and lures and what type of equipment you will need to fish. It is a huge book, 361 pages. It has LOTS of useful information. This is not your book if you are an expert and want a book about a more specific type of fish. It talks about saltwater fishing, but I think it is aimed more towards freshwater fishing. This book is GREAT for beginners and is worth every penny!
