Summary

Far from being a conventional 'how to' guide, this book is about the simple fundamental principles of fishing - a mind-set for success. In other words, how to think like a fish.  

After starting to fish in rural England more than 50 years ago and going on to become a captor of large, wily carp in his teens, Jeremy Wade started combining angling with far-flung exploration in 1982 - a trip to northern India via Afghanistan in a plane that just weeks later was hit by a ground-to-air missile. 

Since then Jeremy has caught an unparalleled array of large and outlandish fish from challenging locations all over the world, originally in seat-of-the-pants solo travels and more recently in the company of a TV crew. 

Among the fish caught are a dozen freshwater species over the weight of 100 pounds, some of which were unknown even to anglers until recently. As these catches have come more to the public attention, many people have approached Jeremy about how they can improve their fishing results.  

Fishing is about deception, so it has to engage the brain. It is an exercise in problem solving, where no two sets of circumstances are exactly the same, where success is an artful blend of drawing on experience and keeping an open mind.

Disappointing

I went by the title and good reviews, but struggled to get through it. Just don't understand the point of this book. It's a pile of very random stories, without any logical storyline, mixed up with random very basic tips and strange explanations of say breaking strengths of mono lines, next to results of studies and catfish predicting earthquake and so on. Kept wondering what was I even listening to

Brilliant!

Really enjoyed this book

After watching river monsters it was great to hear Jeremy narrating this himself....

I’m an avid fly angler but was a bait fisher as a boy.....it’s clear that Jeremy has a whole world of experience and this was a really enjoyable listen

An excellent listen from an experienced monster hunter.

If you enjoyed River Monsters and want to learn a thing or two this is the book for you. He gives an insight into the way he fishes and there are plenty of stories coming from the River Monster series. Thoroughly enjoyed and have read twice already!

Loved it!!
