Large trade paperback. 216 pages. Index. Illustrated throughout by Dave Whitlock with drawings and black and white photographs. Stated first paperback edition, first printing with no other printings listed. “A compact guide to spinning, bait-casting, and fly-rodding for large and smallmouth bass — and to lures, tactics, structure fishing, and much more.” No previous ownership marks. No spine crease. A used copy, tight and clean with text and illustrations unmarked. Slight curl at tips. Near very good.
