From the 2.4-million-copy bestselling series that defines pastimes from sailing to gardening to computers, Fishing is a comprehensive compilation of angling words and phrases-from hook (an irritating but highly reliable device used to quickly locate one's thumb at the bottom of the tackle box) to line (length of filament stretched between two fishing rods and joined approximately at its midpoint by a pair of linked hooks) to sinker (a lead weight attached to the end of a fishing line to facilitate the safe disposal in deep water of unwanted lures). Plus, learn why chicken is the tuna of the sea, and the true meaning of terms such as rod and reel, fly-tying, trolling, and dribble. Every member of the pier group will bite. Over 522,000 copies in print.

From the Back Cover:

Hook, line, sinker & the rules for reporting lost fish.

INCLUDING:
boot: a shallow puddle worn on the foot
zzzzzz: 1. Sound made by a patient angler waiting for a bite. 2. Sound made by an insect about to deliver one.

About the Author:
