Fil-O-Fish first appeared in Queensland
15 years ago, with that edition selling 15,000 copies in the Sunshine State alone.
A comprehensive new waterproof edition is now available covering the whole of Australia.
It contains 400 of the most important angling species, both marine and freshwater, taken by recreational fishers around the country…all in the one small book.
With a quality photograph of each species matched to its Australian standard name (Australian Fish Names Standard AS SSA 5300), this is an absolute must for anyone wanting to identify their catch. It includes almost all of the state and territory regulated fish species.
From inland freshwater fishes, to those taken from estuaries, bays and coastal waters, through to deep offshore fishes, they are all covered.
Information given for each species includes their scientific name, family name, habitat, main distinguishing diagnostic features, size range (maximum recorded length and weight), Australian distribution and eating quality. Family information also includes diets (as a bait guide) and cooking hints. The book is fully indexed and completely waterproof.
Perfect for pocket, tacklebox or boat, it’s a great guide to Australia’s recreational fishes.
