There are almost as many ways to fish as there are fish and fishermen. But among the countless, varied methods available to the modern angler, ice fishing is without a doubt the one most remarkably different from all the others. And it's not just that the ice fisherman fishes while standing on the water. The methods of ice fishing are unique to the sport. The angler who has learned his craft on summer bass ponds and cool mountain trout streams has to learn it all over again when he takes to the ice. But there's help. In Pro Tactics: Ice Fishing, expert angler Jason Durham provides a complete course in fishing through the ice. He covers tackle, techniques, lures and baits, finding fish—and staying safe, warm, and dry. The aspiring ice fisherman needs no other source of information.
