Actually I am looking for two recommendations
Can anyone recommend a good introductory book on normal rod and reel type fishing the more basic the better as I have zero knowledge of fishing.
Something that tells you how to not fall foul of the law would be a bonus.
Is there a "classic" survival type fishing book?
And just quick disclaimer... I know survival type fishing e.g. handlines, traps and fixed lines would be illegal for the most part and I have no intention of going down to my local river and setting up a trap line or anything else illegal. There seems to be a lot of disparate bits of information in books and websites I was just wondering if the techniques were distilled into one source somewhere.
