-===== Fishing Mapbooks ===== 
  
-<​bootnote>​1) What is a Fishing Mapbook?</​bootnote>​ 
-The Fishing Mapbook is a guidebook that combines detailed lake charts or river maps with 
-important information on the lake or stream. In addition to the lake charts that help you 
-determine where to fish on the lake, we provide pertinent information such as fish species, 
-stocking information,​ access and facilities and even fishing tips. 
- 
-<​bootnote>​2) Why should I buy the Fishing Mapbook?</​bootnote>​ 
-If you are new to the area or are simply looking for alternative lakes or streams to explore, the 
-Fishing Mapbook provides up to 200 of the best fishing locations in the area. Add in the valuable 
-fishing tips and maps and you have all you need to actually find where the fish are hiding. 
- 
-<​bootnote>​3) What is the difference between your Fishing Maps and all of those free online lake charts 
-and maps?</​bootnote>​ 
-You get what you pay for. We add a lot of extra details like access points or boat launches, 
-campsites or resorts as well as the surrounding roads to the lake chart. We also provide location 
-maps, stocking charts as well as describe how to fish the lake, how to access the lake and what 
-facilities are found in the area. 
- 
-<​bootnote>​4) How do you decide which lakes to include in the Fishing books?</​bootnote>​ 
-We try to provide a good mix of lakes and streams to sample in each book. In addition to the 
-most popular waterbodies,​ we try to mix in a few remote destinations as well as those that are 
-stocked. We also make sure we have some larger lakes that are ideal for trolling as well as 
-smaller lakes that are better suited for fly-fishing or casting from shore. 
- 
-If there is a lake or stream missing that you think should be included, drop us a line and we will 
-see if we can add it next time. 
- 
-<​bootnote>​5) Where do you get the information found in the Fishing Mapbooks?</​bootnote>​ 
-In addition to hiring local researcher/​writers,​ we consult a wide range of sources. From fishing 
-retailers to government sources, from clubs and organizations to tourism we leave no lily pad 
-unturned. 
- 
-It should also be noted that we rely heavily on readers to help us update and improve the maps 
-and writing. Please continue to provide feedback and updates and be sure to take advantage of 
-our update contests! 
- 
-<​bootnote>​6) How will the Fishing Mapbooks help me?</​bootnote>​ 
-Whether new to the sport or a wily veteran, we offer details you won&#​39;​t find elsewhere. 
-Experienced anglers love the lake depth charts to locate hidden holes or structure. People new to 
-the sport or area will appreciate the basic information on fishing gear and fish species. Add in the 
-fact we cover up to 200 options in each mapbook to give you some variety and a wide range of 
-tips to try. Of course, we also recommend you visit the local tackle shop to find out more on 
-recommended gear. 
- 
-<​bootnote>​7) What are the PDF versions of the mapbooks?</​bootnote>​ 
-Our PDF books are digital files that can be viewed on a variety of devices (computer, tablets, 
-iPad, iPhones, smart phones, and so on). You get the full mapbook (introduction,​ maps, 
-recreation information,​ etc.) and can search the content. You can also zoom in and out easily 
-allowing for easier reading, but you cannot print the pages. 
- 
-Note: You will need to unzip the file before transferring the PDF file to any device that you want 
-to read it on. The best way to get the PDF version on your iPhone or iPad is by using iTunes. 
-Drop the PDF book into the book&#​39;​s category through your computer and then sync your device. 
- 
-<​bootnote>​8) Where do I find the Fishing Mapbook PDF book I just purchased?</​bootnote>​ 
-Once your purchase has been successful and you are back in our online store, you can download 
-the file by the download link provided. The link can also be found if you need to log back into 
-your account. Click to view the order containing the PDF book and click Download. You can 
-attempt 3 downloads, before the link expires. 
- 
-<​bootnote>​9) Can I just buy an individual Fishing Map as opposed to the whole book?</​bootnote>​ 
-Yes, we offer each lake and stream in our Fishing Map pages of our online shop. The lakes and 
-streams are broken down alphabetically by book as well as by Province (BC and Ontario only). 
-We offer three sizes ranging from letter size (8.5 x 11) to wall map size (24 x 32). The letter 
-size includes the text found in the Fishing Mapbook, while the other two sizes are enlarged lake 
-charts or river maps that are easier to read and do not include the writing. 
- 
-<​bootnote>​10) How can I find the lake or stream I am looking for?</​bootnote>​ 
-The complete list of lakes and streams are found on our Fishing Map pages of our online shop. If 
-you know the region or zone you are fishing, click on that book title and you will see the entire 
-list of lakes and streams. Alternatively,​ search the drop down menu in the Province of interest to 
-see all lakes and streams we offer. 
- 
-<​bootnote>​11) Are the books and maps copyrighted?</​bootnote>​ 
-The writing and maps are protected by copyright. No reproduction in whole or in part is allowed 
-without the expressed written consent of the publisher. Yes, that even includes scanning or 
-photocopying the pages and/or posting the maps on the internet. If you ask, we are generally 
-supportive of noncommercial reproduction. 
-<​bootnote>​ 
-12) Can the lake charts be used for navigation?</​bootnote>​ 
-Our depth charts are not designed for navigational use. Uncharted rocks and shallows, stumps 
-and other debris are just some of the things that cannot be accurately mapped on freshwater 
-water bodies.
