From the Back Cover

"Highly recommended. . . . Paid for itself in one project."--Washington Times

A bad day fishing is better than a good day working, right? Keith Walters has been fishing for over fifty years, and he knows that even a good day fishing can be made better by simple, do-it-yourself projects that will improve your boat, your tackle, and your temper. His priorities are safety, comfort, and "fishability," and he's gathered more than a hundred tips on everything from handy rod rests and space-saving tackle storage lockers to modifying or making your own lures and rigs.

The Ingenious Angler will help you catch more fish, have more fun, and save money at the same time! You'll learn to

  • optimize your boat for fishing
  • maintain and repair your rods and reels
  • create your own rigs and lures and tie the best angling knots
  • make anchoring, docking, and trailering easier and more comfortable

"Keith has put the best of the tips, projects, and ideas he has developed, found, tried, and used though the years into this book. . . . It will save you money while making fishing more fun."--from the foreword by C. Boyd Pfeiffer

"Full of things to do to get ready to fish or make it easier or more fun."--USA Today

"Good for every angler of every stripe who likes to tinker or fix things up."--Washington Times

By Steven Quigley on August 26, 2005
Format: Paperback
This book covers a large gamut of things of interest to fishermen and contains many useful tips for rigging your boat/gear. As a long-time fisherman but new boat owner, I found this book encourages you to think outside the box in how you use your boat and tackle. I found a lot of value in the author's many years of experience fishing the Chesapeake (my area), and the fishing tips that come across in his descriptions of the projects. I would point out that a few of the projects are homemade versions of things that are now available in your local boating store or tackle shop (ex. pvc rod holders, built-in tackle box storage, tool holders, etc), and a few are perhaps even a little hokey--something you might only do with an older boat or to save a few bucks. However, the gamut of material this book covers from aluminum to fiberglass boats, rigs to rod repairs, etc. should appeal to all kinds of anglers. Some projects are great for those who are looking to make some of their own accessories; other projects feature practical tips that would be helpful to even the experienced angler.

Most of these ideas are pretty outdated and aren't very helpful.
