The Complete Guide to Saltwater Fishing is the most authoritative handbook compiled on North America's most popular saltwater game fish. Over 125 species are included. Details on each fish include its range, average weight, current IGFA record information, and other pertinent identification data. Ristori covers all types of ultra-light rods and reels; medium, heavy spinning, and baitcasting gear; and equipment for fly fishing enthusiasts, too. He also talks about terminal tackle, including monofilament, fly lines, leadcore, wire, hooks, and lures. An entire chapter is dedicated to helping anglers better understand the ever-changing waters they're fishing and the importance of discovering the variables that dictate where fish may be and when they'll be feeding. He even includes the latest tips on shore fishing.
