Survival expert Tyler White is back with a new guide on fishing in the wild.
This 50-page how-to manual is, in Tyler’s own words, intended for “someone who has never been fishing before, doesn’t know the difference between a fly fishing hook or a lake fishing hook, or for someone who just wants to get better at something that they’ve been doing their entire life.”
Just as in his bug out manual, Fishing The Wild puts you in the role of Tyler’s student and companion on a friendly and enlightening wilderness adventure. Only this time, your destination is a western river, high up in the mountains, where you’ll learn the A to Z of fishing in the backcountry.
Tyler begins by talking you through equipment — everything from boots, bibs, bags and nets, to poles, line, hooks and “gink” — while sharing his own preference for minimalism and imparting the wisdom, “pack the kit for the trip that you’re going to go on.” Then, at the bottom of page 8, he transitions to the “how-tos” of fishing itself, and goes into detail about tying hooks, selecting locations, finding fish, casting your line (traditional and fly), managing your line, changing lures, baiting fish and processing them.
Those new to fishing will find that by the end of single reading they’ll have the confidence to begin shopping and making plans for their first wilderness fishing trip. Although, they’ll want to take this guide with them on the trip, and make frequent reference to it as they try and put the principles and techniques Tyler teaches to work for themselves. Experienced fishermen, too, will find the guide helpful, if for nothing else than as a means of comparing notes with an accomplished expert.
Whether you’re interested in fishing as an enjoyable pastime, a means of survival, or both, we think you’ll find Fishing The Wild to be a valuable resource that’s well worth the small investment you’ll make to acquire it.
