Ever gone fishing and caught something you weren’t quite sure about? Did you wonder if it was the legal size? Did you know if it was edible and how to cook it? Have you always wanted to know a bit more about which hook size and bait will improve your chances of bringing home the big one?If any of this sounds familiar, then Daryl Crimp, a.k.a. Crimpy has written the perfect book for you. His new book, Hook, Line & Sinker, is the essential guide to catching, identifying and enjoying the most popular and commonly caught Kiwi fish.

From bait fish to game fish, from whitebait and albacore tuna to barracouta and mahimahi, he’s listed and described his top sixty fish, telling you where to find them and what rig and bait you’ll need to catch them. And presuming you follow his instructions and have a good day on the water, he’s also thrown in some easy recipes to help you enjoy the results.
