Two books stand out:

American Coarse Angling by Brook Landis

Modern Bank Fishing by Michael Keyes

Both are written by Americans and give a good overview of Euro methods. The first one is more recent and has better detail, IMO.

Here's a good website to check out:

My book is somewhat outdated (1991), but it is free: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...ishing%20R.pdf

Thanks for this, a lot of the stuff that I've learned so far have been from a friend of mine who learned from his dad or just trial and error.
