The Get Fishing family guide for all new anglers – Dominic Garnett

Dominic Garnett, Author and Fishing Guide, gives his thoughts on the new Get Fishing ‘how to’ guide to Coarse, Sea and Fly Fishing by Allan Sefton.

Angling books for the beginner or improver are always welcome – especially when they are as clear and welcoming as Get Fishing, the ‘how to’ guide to Coarse, Sea and Fly Fishing by Allan Sefton.

Let’s face it, as experienced anglers we forget how confusing and jargon infested our sport can be, especially for the newcomer.

We all have to start somewhere, though….

As a kid, I can still remember how dry and impenetrable many of the books were, and how appalling the visuals were!

Reading about fly fishing, for example, I once thought I’d need a brain the size of a house just to understand all the various insects and their imitations.

Get Fishing, by Allan Sefton 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. I’m so pleased to have played a small part in contributing some feedback and photography to help the book, too.

Along with David Overlands bright and appealing illustrations, it’s certainly very easy on the eye and at just a tenner, really easy on the wallet!

Pitched at just the right level to make the world of fishing a clearer, modern and more appealing place for the newcomer, Get Fishing is the sort of book I wish I’d had back in the 80s!
