Many of the subjects in this book are truly controversial for many experienced anglers who have been using the same angling techniques and fishing myths for most of their life. The author has examined each of these myths, performing detailed tests where needed to prove that scientifically, the myths are no longer valid and may never have been. To make the reading experience more interesting the author had used history and historical events to support his theories and processes. This is a unique way to increase the reading enjoyment of this book.
