I want to buy Dad a catfish book for his birthday, what would you suggest?
You don’t say if your dad is new to catfishing or not and that will affect what you get him. If he is just getting started you want to offer him a book that covers the basics. One that has some great illustrations can also help him to get things in order and the confidence to get out there and try it.
If your dad has been enjoying bass fishing for a long time, you may want to give him a book that covers some of the tips and techniques of the experts and professionals. By widening his scope of knowledge, he will be able to get larger bass and to find better spots for catching them.
Take your time to read reviews about various catfish books before you buy one for your dad. You want to make sure the material is right up his alley. If it is too basic he won’t find value in it but if it is too specific for his skills at this time it will be overwhelming.
