Hook line & sinker by Ray Doogue

Hook Line and Sinker begins, for Australian and New Zealand enthusiasts with a primitive handline dangled from over the end of a wharf. It generally develops into a passion for the more sophisticated forms of the sportsurf- casting, or the pursuit of the great samefish from specially equipped launches.

The author of this book has been a dedicated sea-angler all his life and has regularly practised every form of sea- fishing. To this practical dedication he has also brought an intensive study of th fish themselves,,of their behaviour in varying conditions of weather, moon, tI wind, temperature, and marine ecology and of the tackle and tactics best adapted to outwit their natural defences.

A particularly fascinating elemenof the book is the discussion of Maori beliefs relative to the optimum moon-periods for catching fish, and the scientific basis for their success. Th "Maori Calendar" deserves careful study by all anglers intent on improving their results.

The range of information offered on relative efficiency of fishing methods on the types of rods, reels, lines, hooks, baits, sinkers and ancillary equipment, is encyclopedic. It is expanded and further clarified by the wealth of accurate illustration.

The book covers, in fact, the whole fIeld of catching sea-fish for sport, and_ answers every query likely to be raised not only by anglers in Australia and New Zealand waters, but by those on every coastline in the world.
