A Good Day's Fishing

by James Prosek

Published by Simon & Schuster, 2004
40 pages
ISBN: 0-689-85327-0

Ages 5-12

A child rummages through the contents of his tackle box, certain that what he needs for a good day’s fishing is somewhere inside. Beautiful watercolor paintings show each lure and tool described in the simple text. Additional paintings depict the kind of fish each is designed to catch, making this a picture book and field guide in one. Some of the more curious things in his tackle box include an old peanut butter sandwich and an eel—neither is what he is looking for. Finally the boy finds just the thing for a good day’s fishing: his hat. James Prosek is a noted fishing expert and has written extensively on the topic for adults. The glossary in the back explains in much more technical detail how each kind of lure and fly works to move and reflect light and how each is designed to attract certain types of fish in a variety of conditions.
