Booklist Review

Gr. 5-8. Bailey, author of the adult title Ultimate Freshwater Fishing (1998), offers an excellent beginning guide sure to excite young people interested in sport fishing. In DK's typical easy-to-follow format, Bailey packs information onto each spread, covering the anatomy, growth, and feeding habits of fish; equipment and tips for first usage (including basic casting, with a helpful clock face showing proper positioning); and types of fishing, such as lure, bobber, bottom, surf, and night fishing. Beginners may be surprised by Bailey's instructions to kids who've caught fish--let them go. Throughout, he encourages readers to maintain a careful, low-impact approach to natural environments and fish themselves. A respectful introduction is filled with encouraging words for kids just starting out. A glossary and further resources conclude. --Gillian Engberg
