The Weekend Angler's Guide to Good Fishing provides recreational anglers with the knowledge and instruction they need to enjoy a greater level of fishing success. This book was written for those who have some experience and know much of the terminology used to describe equipment, conditions, and other intricacies of fishing. It may not be the best resource for people who have never fished. If you don't know the difference between a spinning and baitcasting rod and reel, or the difference between monofilament and braided lines, you may struggle with some of the information provided in this book. But most of what you will read is basic information and useful knowledge for recreational anglers of all skill levels. The author provides guidance on finding productive places to fish, and choosing the best times to fish, for many of North America's most popular gamefish. Readers will also learn to select tackle, lures, and other equipment with an eye on expense, quality and performance. Advice is provided on how to find good fishing where the outdoor experience is less affected by competition from other anglers or poor conditions. And for those who have family members they would like to introduce to the sport, there are tips on how to teach a child or loved one to fish. For the advanced angler, a chapter on trophy fishing is included. References to the lighter side of fishing emphasize key points, make readers feel they are sharing in the experience described, and include enough humor to entertain those who enjoy reading about fishing as much as they enjoy doing it. The author provides guidance and information, but also entertains so the learning experience is enjoyable. All chapters are written in easy-to-understand language that includes pictures, charts, or diagrams to heighten interest and simplify understanding. Fishing is not a sport limited to highly trained athletes, to the rich, or to the experienced. Few sports offer an equal opportunity for success to men, women, and children of all ages and backgrounds. Whether you fish a few times a year, or whenever you can slip away, The Weekend Angler's Guide to Good Fishing will provide you the guidance and information needed to help you enjoy a greater level of angling success.

PREFACE. THE Author of this very practical treatise on Scotch Loch - Fishing desires clearly that it may be of use to all who had it. He does not pretend to have written anything new, but to have attempted to put what he has to say in as readable a form as possible. Everything in the way of the history and habits of fish has been studiously avoided, and technicalities have been used as sparingly as possible. The writing of this book has afforded him pleasure in his leisure moments, and that pleasure would be much increased if he knew that the perusal of it would create any bond of sympathy between himself and the angling community in general. This section is interleaved with blank shects for the readers notes. The Author need hardly say that any suggestions addressed to the case of the publishers, will meet with consideration in a future edition. We do not pretend to write or enlarge upon a new subject. Much has been said and written-and well said and written too on the art of fishing but loch-fishing has been rather looked upon as a second-rate performance, and to dispel this idea is one of the objects for which this present treatise has been written. Far be it from us to say anything against fishing, lawfully practised in any form but many pent up in our large towns will bear us out when me say that, on the whole, a days loch-fishing is the most convenient. One great matter is, that the loch-fisher is depend- ent on nothing but enough wind to curl the water, -and on a large loch it is very seldom that a dead calm prevails all day, -and can make his arrangements for a day, weeks beforehand whereas the stream- fisher is dependent for a good take on the state of the water and however pleasant and easy it may be for one living near the banks of a good trout stream or river, it is quite another matter to arrange for a days river-fishing, if one is looking forward to a holiday at a date some weeks ahead. Providence may favour the expectant angler with a good day, and the water in order but experience has taught most of us that the good days are in the minority, and that, as is the case with our rapid running streams, -such as many of our northern streams are, -the water is either too large or too small, unless, as previously remarked, you live near at hand, and can catch it at its best. A common belief in regard to loch-fishing is, that the tyro and the experienced angler have nearly the same chance in fishing, -the one from the stern and the other from the bow of the same boat. Of all the absurd beliefs as to loch-fishing, this is one of the most absurd. Try it. Give the tyro either end of the boat he likes give him a cast of ally flies he may fancy, or even a cast similar to those which a crack may be using and if he catches one for every three the other has, he may consider himself very lucky. Of course there are lochs where the fish are not abundant, and a beginner may come across as many as an older fisher but we speak of lochs where there are fish to be caught, and where each has a fair chance. Again, it is said that the boatman has as much to do with catching trout in a loch as the angler. Well, we dont deny that. In an untried loch it is necessary to have the guidance of a good boatman but the same argument holds good as to stream-fishing...
