In this inspirational and informative book, Don MacLean guides anglers to where they will find the best of Nova Scotia's sportfishing opportunities in any season of the year. The book will appeal to both residents and tourists as it outlines the sportfish species that are found in the province, how to fish them and where to find them through the seasons.
There are tales of Nova Scotia's glorious fishing past, including celebrated 'fly tyers' and guides, tales of the rich and famous who have also fished our waters and tips on tackle and technique for fishing in lake, river, and sea. And as a fisheries biologist, MacLean also provides detailed information on the ecology and life history of the major fish species of the province.
