In Black Bass, Knight offers everything fishermen need to know about smallmouth and largemouth bass. He focuses on both equally, as he believed neither is the more superior group. Readers will learn about the life cycles, characteristics, behaviors, diets, and feeding habits of both types of bass. Understanding where and how these fish exist will help aspiring and novice fishermen with the next step: catching them.

The second half of Knight’s book provides readers with various methods of securing bass while on the water. Chapters are devoted to rods, reels, lines and leaders, lures, and incidental equipment, as well as specific techniques fishermen can use and the advantages and proper handling of each.

Black Bass is an entertaining and informative book for bass fishermen everywhere and represents a lifetime of study and fishing in many sections of the United States.
