Whether you're fly-fishing, trolling, spinning, or surfcasting, your knots must hold well, be easy to remember, and help the lure to wriggle. The Complete Book of Fishing Knots, Leaders, and Lines teaches anglers the best way to tie reliable, workable knots. Knots you already know and unusual special-purpose knots are depicted in color photographs tied with thick monofilament, so you don't have to guess what each knot is really supposed to look like. There are descriptions of fifty knots, and tips to improve your tackle and simplify life for yourself—because the fish make fishing hard enough! The Complete Book of Fishing Knots, Leaders, and Lines also offers clear instructions for tying winning leaders, tips for selecting lines, and up-to-date information from the field that will bring you the quickest, slickest, and best catch ever.
