“‘Get Fishing’ is a great introduction to the sport, its easy reading containing loads of information, photographs and diagrams to help you begin fishing. Excellent to see coarse, sea and fly fishing all in one book.“ Ian Wilks – Licensed Level 2 Angling Coach
“The book is superb, it’s written in simple language which makes it very unique and ideal for beginners. However, it’s not just for newcomers to angling. I’ve been fishing for over 20 years and also found many great tips. An important aspect is that it’s not a “heavy” read. There are many pictures, which will help a beginner to understand fishing techniques. All of the most important methods are described very well. I will be using this book to help promote angling to youngsters.“ Janusz Kansik – Building Bridges Project Manager, Angling Trust
“Angling books for the beginner or improver are always welcome – especially when they are this clear and welcoming. Let’s face it, as experienced anglers we forget how confusing and jargon infested our sport can be, especially for the newcomer. Get Fishing, on the other hand, is beautifully clear and friendly. You can tell it was written by a coach who knows where the novice is coming from“ Dom Garnett – Digital Content Creator, Angling Trust
