An Australian fishing guide written for kids. Authored by Hailey Paxevanos and co-authored by Fishing Australia TV show presenter Rob Paxevanos, this book covers all the basics such as knots, bait collecting, casting games, packing gear etc. But it’s more the way these topics are presented that makes it a winner.
Hailey also wanted the book to be visual and in a language that anyone can understand...or in her words – ‘it’s for kids dad it needs to be fun and easy with lots of pictures’.
Parents are time poor and kids are time rich...Hailey’s book has harnessed this! For example kids can do many of the activities on their own before they even head off fishing! The book is also getting kids off iPads and into healthy real life hands on stuff. The book also presents the popular species we can all hook into – such as bream, flathead and whiting in the salt water. Then of course there’s trout, redfin, and golden perch in the freshwater. Hailey once again lead the way here, she knows there are EASY ways to catch these fish without needing lots of experience and expensive tackle.
