From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6-- Similar to Freshwater Fish and Fishing, (Four Winds, 1982) and Flies in the Water, Fish in the Air (Lothrop, 1986), this book provides a compatible mixture of fishing instruction and personal angling experiences. Here Arnosky looks at the various methods, equipment, and tackle needed to be successful in this popular sport. He also stresses, without preaching, the importance of properly releasing fish that won't be consumed and the need to protect the natural environment. Instruction in boating and fishing safety are provided. High-quality drawings appear on amost every page. He reproduces a variety of fish that he'd actually caught, adding their natural colorings with a watercolor wash followed by a layer of colored pencil. The majority of the illustrations are soft, charcoal drawings depicting the various lures, equipment, flora, and fauna described. The illustrations, along with the author's fishing recollections and practical spin-fishing advice, come together to create a worthy addition to most collections. --Tom S.

From Kirkus Reviews:

In joyful text and expressive drawings, an artist-naturalist makes vivid the bliss of a favorite sport. Arnosky is a strong advocate of keeping both land and water pure and of throwing back what won't be eaten (pointers on how not to hurt the fish are included). His instructions on using rods, reels, and all sorts of lures (``spinners, spoons, floating-diving and deep running...flashing, wobbling, jerking, twitching or wriggling'') are careful and thorough. His spirited descriptions should lure anyone to try--and feel confident of success. Arnosky's own fishing adventures are chronicled in prose as colorful as his illustrations. Soft, detailed drawings identify those that got away and the beauty of the waters where they swim; there are also clear illustrations of technique and equipment. All that's missing is how to kill a fish--one suspects that what this gentle artist likes best is to admire his fish and then set them free.
