    By Andy Macleod. Softback, 0.33kg, 210mm x 150mm, 128 pages, full colour photographs, published 2011.

    There are lots of great places to fish around New Zealandís coast, either close to home or somewhere more remote. The best thing is that you donít need a boat to catch a nice fish for dinner or have an unforgettable fishing experience.

    Andy Macleod shares the enjoyment of catching tasty trevally and snapper for the table, as well as the buzz of landing highly prized species, such as kingfish ó and the utter frustration of losing them. He and his fishing mates travel the country to places as far from civilisation as they can get in pursuit of their target species, from Spirits Bay in the far north to Cape Saunders on the Otago Peninsula, and even out to the Chatham Islands.

    This is a book of fishing stories and experiences, which challenges all fishers to venture outside their comfort zone and take their fishing skills to new places and to new levels.
