Pocket Guide UK Sea Fishing

The Pocket Guide for UK Sea Fishing contains over 170 fish entries to help the recreational angler recognise fish caught from the shore, small boat or kayak, many of these fish will also apply to the Irish coasts and Northern European shores to as far away as Norway.

• Mini species are included in our Pocket Guide UK Sea Fish Bait and Pocket Guide UK Seashore apps.
