The Book of Lures
by Ron Calcutt and Tim Simpson

Hardback, 2004, 321pages, very good condition

Until now, selecting the best lure from the vast array available has been bewildering, Two of the most experienced and respected anglers in the field have compiled this definitive guide, distilling the many thousands of lures available into 12 fundamental lure styles and their unique features. This practical information will save you a fortune in 'dud' lures and wasted fishing trips. Ron Calcutt and Tim Simpson cut through the many myths about fishing and lures to present the facts about how fish feel, see, hear and hunt underwater and what triggers them to attack. This means less time spent waiting and hoping for the fish to bite.

Learn about size, colour, speed, sound and design, as well as knots, leaders, new super lines, fish-finding techniques and the critical strike zone.

With hundreds of colour photographs and illustrations, and a comprehensive glossary, The Book of Lures is the essential companion for all anglers.
