A must for all perch fishermen. Fully illustrated w/ 120 B&W photos & explanatory diagrams; 8-pg. color section; 7x9 inches, 160 pgs.
Devastated by disease in the early 1970s, perch are becoming more widespread ? recolonising their former domains ? and an interest in perch fishing has re-kindled.
Inspired by this new enthusiasm, John Bailey and Roger Miller had produced this, the first major study of the species.
The bulk of the book comprises tales of successful perch fishing trips of the 1980s, but there is also a brief history of Perch Disease, advice on choice of rigs and tackles and information on the use of fish-recorders in perch fishing.
