Mistakes in construction, stocking, and management can lead to disappointments. This bulletin is concerned only with warm-water ponds -- not with cool-water or cold-water ponds. It points out the importance of a favorable site, proper pond construction, erosion control, correct stocking, fertilizing, and weed control. And it tells how to manage a warm-water pond for fishing. By following these guides, you can have a lasting pond that can be fished many times a year." -- p. ii
