    Default Reservoir fishing book suggestion?

    A good friend of mine is moving from small stillwaters to reservoir fishing and I want to send him a book that will ease his transition, any suggestions on a book that would include both bank and boat fishing would be appreciated.

    Cheers - JayP

    Loch Fishers Bible, by Stan Headley.
    It's a great book that I'm currently reading again.

    Thanks richfish, will the tips and techniques in the book mentioned transfer to waters such as Grafham, Pitsford and Elinor?

    I'd say yes, for all the important stuff. There's probably better books covering modern lure fishing techniques, but I've never read any such books myself sorry.
    You certainly wouldn't regret purchasing Stans book.

    The one that influenced my approach to reservoir trout fishing most was probably Arthur Coves, My way with trout, not to everyone's taste but timeless IMHO. Still available, new and second hand.
    He wasn't by any means the only influence there were many, many, more.

    I've read it, good book, with some useful tips, as is 'A passion for Trout' by Mick O'Farrell.

    ^ apologies, not much of a review, but they are both good books by real anglers who know how to fish.

    I'd recommend "Trout from a boat" by Dennis Moss.
