Lake, River and Sea-Run Fishes of Canada

The only complete guide to freshwater game fishes in all parts of Canada, Lake, River and Sea-Run Fishes of Canada is a must for anglers, naturalists and anyone who loves fine nature writing. Whether you want to find out how the Dolly Varden trout got its odd name, sort out the salmonids' tangled family relations, or identify some queer-looking item you've never hooked before, this book will prove indispensable.

All of the main fish families are represented in Canadian waters, and new species are still being discovered. Lake, River and Sea-Run Fishes of Canada offers biology, angling tips and notes on the curiosities of all the best-known game fishes, and fishing lore from high mountain lakes, prairie rivers, the Great Lakes, the Arctic coastline and ocean tidepools.

Lake, River and Sea-Run Fishes of Canada
