Peacock Bass Addiction Excerpt :
Lakeland, FL -- There are few, if any, writers more qualified or knowledgeable about peacock bass as Larry Larsen. In this, his third book in the series, Larsen reveals new methods and locations from his continued experimentation and exploration.From his many travels, it is apparent to Larsen that anglers who have even just one opportunity to tangle with peacock bass quickly become addicts. This compilation of the very latest information will help all addicts enjoy the most optimal quality of angling possible. In addition, this book attempts to provide readers with an honest overview of the numerous opportunities in South America and around the world where peacock bass exist. It also covers a large variety of peacock bass camps and operators in each country.Each of the first 12 chapters focuses on geographic areas within the various countries that almost always produce good peacock bass fishing. Chapter 13 Battles Won and Lost provides an experienced viewpoint on how to win battles with the giants. It points out common ways to lose the fish of your dreams and ways to prevent such a catastrophe. Chapter 14 discusses the range and seasonal movements of the peacock bass, critical elements to the success of any South American venture. Fly fishing advice is also covered in Chapter 16.I'm often asked about the most appropriate tackle to carry along on an expedition, says Larsen. My favorite lures, tackle and the types of habitats to use them in are also detailed in this book. It is amazing how little consideration is given to the proper tackle by most anglers, he adds. This is perhaps the most important of all pre-trip planning checklists.
