Books educate, entertain and also inspire. Here, we have put together a collection of what we believe are some of the best books on various aspects and topics of fishing. Many of these are books that we have read while others are books recommended by our readers and others who know their fishing.
No one is born with a rod and reel in hand – though some may disagree. It is through our passion for the sport and the desire to learn that we become better anglers. Books are one of the best tools for learning anything. Our recommendations feature some of the best fishing books available today, ones that will appeal to both beginners and experienced anglers alike. You’ll find best-selling fishing books written by award-winning authors and experts in the field such as Kirk Deeter, Mark Kurlansky and Tom Rosenbauer as well as legendary pro anglers Roland Martin, Kevin VanDam and others.
Want to learn what bait, lures or tackle work best for your particular fish species or type of fishing? Maybe you want to improve your game as a bass or trout angler? Or perhaps you’re a fly fisherman who wants to learn how to tie your own flies? Regardless of what you want to learn or improve, you will most likely find something worthy on the topic in our fishing book recommendations.
