  1. As an American fisherman and writer, last year I asked users of this website for help finding truly weird ways of catching fish for a book I was working on. This is to thank those who replied and to let anyone interested know that 100 Weird Ways to Catch Fish has been published in paperback by Stackpole Books. As a long-time angler, I became interested in the many interesting, innovative, and oftentimes downright weird ways of outwitting fish.

Rope lure for billfish is a new one. Sounds like American "hookless fly" technique for our garfish. Gar get their considerable teeth snagged in nylon threads. Have to comb the nylon to re-use it. Vingling may seem like hard work to you vinglers
  5. Greetings, I am an American fish biologist and writer, and an honorary member of your BASS Society, who is seeking help from your membership. I am 2/3 finished with a new book on the world's strangest and most clever fishing techniques from earliest history through the present, recreational, commercial, or otherwise.
