    Small Stream Bass: A Complete Angler’s Guide To Bass Fishing Off The Beaten Path by stream, river, and lake fishing expert John Gifford is an easy-to-follow, “user friendly” guide to tackle, tactics, timing, and techniques to fishing for bass in overlooked freshwater streams. Bass can live in many streams that can’t support trout, and so bass fishermen have more options for their search of a prime fishing site. Individual chapters address assessing the potential of a fishing stream, as well as practical techniques for adapting and improving one’s methods. Overall, Small Stream Bass is a superb guide for fishermen who want to get away from noisy boats and crowded locales and a highly recommended addition to any personal or community library reference collection.

    After reading Mr. Gifford’s book “Oklahoma Sport Fishing” I was anxious to get a copy of his latest work “Small Stream Bass”. I wasn’t disappointed! I love it!

    I’m just glad that I got this book at a deep discount. Although it does have some interesting information, the format is repetitive in nature. Instead of completely covering a topic, such as fishing in pools, the author returns over and over to the topic with little new to say. The text is disjointed and does not flow well. For example, the blending of fly fishing with conventional tackle fishing is cumbersome and distracting. Even though an entire chapter is devoted to fly fishing, it is already covered elsewhere.
    A far superior book on the subject is Stream Smallmouth Fishing by Tim Holschlag. Though Mr. Holschlag’s book only has “smallmouth” in its title, he does adequately cover other species. It is a book that I will continue to review/reread every year, Small Stream Bass will not be.
