Book Release:

Fishing the Gippsland Lakes & Wilderness Coast

'Fishing the Gippsland lakes & Wilderness Coast' by Darren Reid is a vastly updated and expanded version of the decade old 'Fishing the Gippsland Lakes' by Geoff Wilson.

Experienced angler and photojournalist Darren Reid details some of the best fishing locations throughout the Gippsland region in eastern Victoria. The main areas include the Gippsland lakes and its feeder rivers the Mitchell, Nicholson and Tambo Rivers, the Ninety Mile Beach and the Wilderness coast which features major estuary and beach hotspots including Marlo, Bemm River, Tamboon and Mallacoota.

A recent beneficiary of commercial netting buy-outs, the Gippsland region is as popular as ever for boating, camping and fishing expeditions into its pristine and at times remote waters. This book will greatly assist the angler and his gamily to get the most out of this bountiful region with in-depth maps and accurate descriptions of productive fishing locations.

The section on the Ninety Mile Beach is a must read for anyone who likes to get amongst some of Victoria's best surf fishing with some great tips and hints on the best locations.

A how to catch section covers all the main estuary, beach and offshore species encountered in the region with useful knots and rigs and other helpful tips to assist the novice through to the expert to get the most out of the area.

'Fishing the Gippsland Lakes & Wilderness Coast' is published by Sportsfish Australia Publications Pty Ltd (Ph 03 5592 5288) and retails for $18.95. The book is available now at all good Victorian based tackle shops, books stores and will soon be in K Mart.
