Default New English bass book

I have read a few English bass books and some were very good. The bass may be smaller but the
passion isn't. It might be interesting.

Makes me wonder how many US bass anglers would appreciate a book about a different species of bass in foreign waters when people here don't even want to read about their own bass and their own waters.

I may pick that book up.

I occassionally pick up an English flyfishing magazine at Barnes & Noble. I find the different flies, terminology, mindsets etc. interesting. I don't know if there is an actual interest for foreign fishing books/magazines in the U.S., or if Barnes & Noble is experimenting to see IF there is one...

Not many but some of my book sales have taken place in England. So I guess there is interest on both sides of the Atlantic.

I believe it's been discussed way back, but it's a curiosity to me that stripers don't show up across the pond.

Rob, they don't get bluefish either except in the south around Spain and North Africa.

Not to get off topic but that's what I mean... bluefish are at least "across", even though their distribution is not as far north as I'd expect. Stripers inhabit the same ocean, but I'm guessing their lifecycle doesn't lend itself to self-propagation across the Atlantic. We know that they took when introduced on the West Coast.

Has anyone tried or desired to introduce them over in Europe? (I would guess there would not be strong interest)

Not that I know of. Sometimes invasive species introduction can cause problems and officials may have concerns about that. Unanticipated consequences can cause irreversible damage. Look at what stripers are doing to Maratime salmon smolts.

We've had a lot of discussion as to why, but the Maritime salmon smolt situation is still involving two native fish. External factors (both manmade and natural) must be involved.

I don't know what is causing this salmon /striper storm abut it could be global warming. We do know that northern waters are warming and appealing to more southerly species reaching further north.

I've assumed that was one of the external factors... seems like with nature there are some changes that go one way and once "the genie is out of the box" there is no turning back. I wonder about the Maritime salmon/striper issue if that is the case.

My fear is junk science. So often people get involved in stuff that they lack qualification for.

Especially when it's politicized

I'm tempted about this english bass book, because the same question about stripers nags me about those bass. Why we don't see them here?

At any rate, likely questions that can never be answered.

The thread originator, Walter, is a valuable contributor but I don't see much value in a book about a foreign species in another country. I suggest students of shore fishing read local fishing for native species. We have plenty to choose from here in "Trump-land" DJ Muller, Dennis Z on Block Island, any of eight Mister Smarty's almost true books on the striper surf, to name only a fraction.

Frank,

Looking at other species that share the Atlantic basin as our native striper is just idle, near winter, musing.

I agree there are enough other, and more relevant, books available.
