    I am looking for a good book on fishing in Australia, or a selection of good books, that cover as much of the country as possible. My partner and I will be travelling around Australia and will be wanting to fish as much as possible, and with as much variety as possible also.

    I can't find many books in the shops over here, and I am unsure what to buy on the internet as there isn't much information given about the books.

    Thank you for any recommendations you have. :)

    My favourite would be Fish Australia, over 300 detailed map also what species you are likely to encounter in those areas.
    Cheers

    Kmart is selling a 400 page book by Alistair Mcglashan called The complete fishing bible for $25.I just got a copy yesterday and it's well worth the money

    Another good book, for up North anyway, from Carnarvon WA right around to Sydney Harbour, is 'North Australian FISH FINDER' This book has satellite photo's and GPS points and water depth of all the fishing you could think of for Australia's North end.

    It is realeased every 2yrs and I found this book to worth its weight in gold when I was on my way around Australia! It retails for roughly $25-$28
    Most News Agency's stock it but if you are interested in having a look at it? visit www.fishfinder.com/shop and see their other products as well.
    Highly recommended!!!
