A comprehensive study of how Nile perch can be caught, this guide concentrates on Lake Nasser in Egypt, an idyllic place where most of the modern Nile perch-fishing techniques have been developed. However, other places in the world are also considered, where these enormous fish occur & can be captured. Recounting the pioneer Lake Nasser fishing expeditions, this guide covers the early angling techniques that were used there & how the lake has developed as a location for a remarkable wilderness fishing experience. Modern Nile perch-fishing techniques are also considered, including tackle, bait fishing, lures, & lure fishing, as well as the highly successful fly-fishing. This book also examines advanced bank & boat fishing, vividly recounts the capture of fish in excess of 200 pounds & includes information about all aspects of the Nile perch including their biology, ecology, distribution & how to cook them.
