"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
