Ultralight spin-fishing provides much the same challenge and excitement as fly-fishing--with a mere fraction of the investment in equipment. More accurate casts, more strikes, and a better feel for what's happening at the end of the line are just some of the benefits of this popular angling method. Despite its name, ultralight equipment is robust enough for pursuing trophy-sized freshwater fish as well as more aggressive saltwater species.In this classic, comprehensive guide to ultralight fishing--voted one of the best 25 fishing books in print by Field and Stream--professional guide Peter Cammann presents the latest information on equipment and clearly explains the key tactics, techniques, and lures you need to be most effective with all kinds of fish. Tips for catching trout, bass, salmon, northern pike, walleye, panfish, and such saltwater species as bluefish, striped bass, and barracuda are all covered in detail. Casting and other techniques are fully illustrated. Includes resource appendix for recommended equipment.
