Some changes are simply updates brought about by changes in the technology and equipment. Other changes are in the way the original ideas are presented. Tony admits to many “I wish I had written that better” feelings moments after his first book hit retailer’s shelves. Tony Bishop’s first book, Fishing Smarter was first published in 1997 and has been reprinted at least once a year since. Now Tony has completely rewritten the original book and added over 50% more content.
There is plenty of new material too – new stuff that pops up continually in the fishing world as fishermen share their knowledge. He has tried to separate the current “fads” from the things that will have longer-term benefits in increasing catch rates, and separate marketing hype from the truly useful, (much easier now he is no longer in the tackle business!).
All the many illustrations are new, drawn by Tony using computer graphics software. Some things stay the same, “If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it”.
“If you are one of those who still believes that luck plays a major part in the success or otherwise of any fishing trip, I hope to persuade you that if you continue to believe in luck your catch numbers and sizes have very little chance of increasing.
“But if you want to catch more fish, ‘ more often, much more consistently, take as much luck as possible out of your fishing equation and replace it ‘ with knowledge of fish and their behaviour and you will make your own luck.”
