Recreational fishing is an important activity for about 3.36 million Australians, and many of those keen anglers are children. Scholastic has something special to offer those youngsters, with How to Catch a Fish, a snappy little offering full of tips, hints and sensible information for any child who wants to take up fishing.
Covering subjects from choosing a fishing spot, to selecting and assembling gear and on to cooking your catch, this is an easily accessible guide written in kid-friendly language and using plenty of diagrams, including a four page full colour guide to identifying the most common Australian fish species.
This is the first instalment in Scholastic’s new 99.9% Guaranteed Guide series, and would be a handy Christmas gift, with the summer holidays coming up.
