Here at last, in layman's terms, is a fisherman's guide to the habitat and behavior of saltwater fish. The author, an oceanographer and avid fly fisherman, explains the marine environment and the factors that affect where game fish congregate, how they move with tides and currents, what they see, smell, taste, and hear. The copiously illustrated text covers inshore and offshore habitat and will prove invaluable to anyone who fishes in saltwater, whether in the surf, on the flats, or out at sea. The ocean is vast. It pays to be educated. David Ross is an oceanographer at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute. He is the author of several textbooks in his field and writes the popular column "Marine Science for Fly Fishers" for Saltwater Fly Fishing magazine.
