This is a guide to better fishing no matter your present skill level. It is for the serious fishermen who are not happy with their fishing success, as well as the fisherman who is frustrated and seeking answers to the many nagging questions the sport presents. "The Master Angler" is unique in that it addresses questions that must be answered before you even whet a line. It takes the guess work out of lure selection. The book starts first with understanding the physiology of fish and why they behave the way they do. It examines a lure's attributes and guides you in the selection of the right lure. Trial and error fishing is eliminated, and the book teaches you how to select the right lure before the fist cast. The author has captured much of the science of fishing and condensed it to a practical level for the angler. All technical references are footnoted and supported by personal anecdotal experiences. Finally a book that teaches you what is needed to be a master angler.
