Serious About Gamefishing

Bluewater Techniques for New Zealand

by Sam Mossman

Published by David Bateman Limited. First published 2002. Size: 260mm x 200mm. 208pp. Over 200 photographs and line drawings. Hardcover.

This is New Zealand’s first major game fishing book in twenty years, in this time developments and technology have made game fishing a lot more accessible and widely enjoyed than ever before. the author, Sam Mossman, is a well-known authority on the subject. The book covers the full spectrum including techniques, equipment, boats and a wide variety of fish including marlin, sharks, broadbill, tuna and kingfish.

Since the last substantial book on game fishing in New Zealand was published there has been a revolution in the sport. A dozen game fishing clubs have blossomed into more than fifty. Stand up tackle and the proliferation of lure fishing has meant that anyone with a well-found trailer boat can go out and have a crack at the big fish. New tackle, techniques and fisheries have broadened the scope of the game fisher considerably, and the banning of possession and sale of marlin by commercial boats has greatly increased numbers of this dynamic fish. Everything that the game fisher needs to know is covered in this comprehensive book.
