From the Publisher:

You want to catch fish? You must learn to think like one. No one has spent more time pondering the wily ways of underseas creatures than Scott and Wendy Bannerot. They impart a boatload of hard-earned knowledge and practical advice gleaned from an unparalleled background in commercial fishing, the fiercely competitive Islamorada, Florida Keys sportfishing fleet, and extensive long-distance cruising. From the backwaters and shallows to the deep blue sea, if there are fish to be had, the Bannerots get them. You want to catch fish? Read this book. --Herb McCormick, Editor, Cruising World Magazine "Cruiser's Handbook of Fishing is jam-packed with solid advice on tackle and techniques proven to catch fish almost anywhere in the world's oceans. It's clear that Scott and Wendy Bannerot have gone out there and actually done it." --Barry Gibson, Editor, Salt Water Sportsman "Cruising sailors are legendary for their inability to catch fish, and it isn't for lack of trying. With the publication of Scott and Wendy Bannerot's definitive book there is no excuse not to catch breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Having fished with Scott and Wendy many a day, I've witnessed their uncanny abilities firsthand. This future classic is destined to be on every sailboat and motor cruiser." --Peter Jenkins, best-selling author of Along the Edge of America and A Walk across America "It's hard to imagine anyone else in the world writing this book this well. The Bannerots combine their remarkable sailing and cruising experience with a tremendous knowledge of fish and love of catching them, offering both novices and seasoned veterans a definitive work replete with fascinating anecdotes and specific information." --Doug Olander, Editor in Chief, Sport Fishing Magazine "On top of all their other fishing advice, Scott and Wendy Bannerot include here a fine introduction to fly-fishing for the experienced cruiser. In a nutshell: keep it simple and don't be intimidated. All over the world, cruisers will find themselves in places where they'll want to leave the heavy gear in the racks and grab the fly rod. The Bannerots will help them get into fish." --Jim Butler, Editor in Chief, Fly Rod & Reel Magazine "This is the ultimate guide to harvesting the sea. It should be aboard every cruising boat." --Steve Dashew "This is one of the most comprehensive, easy to read, 'how-to-fish' books I've come across. It covers the whole gamut of fishing techniques from how to catch your bait and rig your gear to processing your catch, all from the perspective of a cruising yacht. A great informative reference and a good read." --Wade Whitelaw, Fisheries Research Scientist, Secretariat of the Pacific Community "This is more than a first-class instruction manual on fishing for ocean cruisers. It is a wonderful reference work that will make fishing easier and more productive regardless of the equipment you have available or the exotic location you choose to wet a line." --Gary Caputi, The Big Game Fishing Journal "Cruising and fishing coincide in most coastal locales, so why not keep some fishing tackle aboard your boat--and a copy of The Cruiser's Handbook of Fishing with it? Scott and Wendy Bannerot have created a blueprint for sailboaters or power cruisers on the best ways to use their tackle." --Joe Healy, Editor, Saltwater Fly Fishing Magazine "Scott and Wendy Bannerot's writing is wonderful; it's both authoritative and inclusive, as if some grizzled fisherman threw his arm around your shoulders and patiently explained the essentials of fishing as you walked down the dock. Not only will voyagers benefit from the ample technical detail, they'll also be captivated by the stories that bring the subject to life and illuminate our timeless fascination with fishing." --Tim Queeney, Editor, Ocean Navigator
