The most valuable piece of information for anglers is knowing where and when they can practise their art. To this end, internationally renowned author, photographer and fisherman John Bailey has drawn on his considerable experience to present 80 of the best places in Britain and Ireland to catch freshwater fish by float, lure and ledger. County by county, John Bailey describes in detail each fishing site - offering useful tips on equipment and techniques so coarse fishermen and women will turn potential bites into actual catches. The guide also includes vital practical information on fishing sites' addresses, contact details, peak seasons, regulations and ticket prices. Fully updated for 2006 and illustrated with superb, full-colour photographs and two-colour maps, "Where to Coarse Fish in Britain and Ireland" ensures that travelling anglers will get the most out of each and every fishing expedition.
