Complete with hook, line, and sinker, The Kids' Book of Fishing is an initiation into the oldest unofficial club in the world.

Written with an emphasis on freshwater catch-and-release fishing, this fact-filled, illustrated book points out the best fishing holes and what to use for bait. Kids meet bluegills, crappies, perch, bass, and trout; learn about their habits and habitats; and discover if they feel pain (they don't). Then it's time to catch them. Beginning with the simplest hand-line method for jigging, The Kids' Book of Fishing establishes the basics: tying knots, judging water depth, choosing the right tackle and bait, attaching a bobber, and-most important of all-how to tell when a bite comes and what to do about it.

Packaged with each book are 30 feet of monofilament line, 3 sinkers, 3 hooks, 1 plummet weight, 1 snap-swivel, 1 red-and-white bobber, and a custom-made plastic tacklebox.

With its environmental tips, neat facts, projects and activities, The Kids' Book of Fishing is The Compleat Angler for kids.

Selection of the Book-of-the-Month Club and the Rodale Book Club. 190,000 copies in print.

CLINCH KNOTS TO BASS BUGS

Here is the introductory book to the oldest unofficial club in the world. Learn how to tie knots, judge water depth, choose the right tackle, attach a bobber-and most important-know when you've got a bite and what to do about it. Complete with hook, line, and sinker, THE KIDS' BOOK OF FISHING passes down such lore as the habits and habitats of freshwater fish; when to use live bait and when to try lures; how to be environmentally responsible-even how to skip stones when the fish are just not biting.

THE KIDS' TACKLEBOX

The Bobber: It not only keeps your bait off the bottom, but tells you when you have a bite.

The Line: This fluorescent monofilament is light, sturdy, and easy to spot-for you, not the fish.

The Hooks: Use one of the #6 hooks when you're going after sunfish or perch; save the #1/0 for the big ones; add a lure using the swivel.

The Sinkers: Attach one or more, depending on the current. Use the plummet to find the water's depth.
