detdesc::Every angler dreams of landing "the big one," but that's only part of the appeal of fly fishing. Because even when hours pass without a bite, nothing beats the rugged beauty of the surroundings. For both armchair travelers and avid outdoorsmen who may have already started a checklist of their own, Fifty Places to Fly Fish Before You Die maps out the meccas of the fly-fishing world.

Through in-depth interviews with the sport's acknowledged gurus, author Chris Santella g'es beyond standard guides to convey the very essence of the recommended locations. Readers can vicariously cast mouse patterns to fifty-pound taimen in the wilds of Mongolia, wrangle with wily permit off the Florida Keys, and match the hatch on Montana's Armstrong's Spring Creek.

detdesc::Leland on The River Why, David James Duncan

 

Since its publication by Sierra Club Books nearly two decades ago, The River Why has become a classic, standing with Norman Maclean's A River Runs Through It as the most-read fiction about fly-fishing of our era. Duncan's protagonist, Gus Orviston, is an irreverent young flyfisherman--a vibrant character who makes us laugh easily and feel deeply, and who speaks with startling truth about the way we live. Leaving behind a madcap, fishing-obsessed family, Gus embarks on an extraordinary voyage of self-discovery along beloved Oregon rivers. What he finds is man's wanton destruction of nature and a burning desire to commit himself to its preservation. The River Why is a tale that gives a voice to the concerns and hopes of all living things on this beautiful planet. It is the story of one man's search for meaning, for love, and for a sane way to live.

detdesc::Rivers of Restoration: Trout Unlimited's First 50 Years of Conservation


A beautiful tribute to twenty rivers restored by the work of Trout Unlimited and its members. We
all love rivers and the trout that the best of them hold. For fifty
years, the volunteers of Trout Unlimited have strived to restore,
sustain, and preserve the nation's trout and salmon waters. Weaving
together human and natural histories, Ross tells the stories of twenty
watersheds where Trout Unlimited has labored to save rivers damaged by
human shortsightedness. From Michigan's Au Sable to New York's Delaware
to rivers in California, Washington, and more, the stories of these
rivers-both in peril and in recovery-will remind fishermen why they love
the sound of running water, and why our natural resources need to be
protected. 200 color photographs.

detdesc::Leland on Custom Rod Thread Art


Most custom rod builders are always searching for new decorative thread patterns with which to distinguish their rods. The interest, enjoyment, and rewards have been so great that a separate art form has emerged. This book is a response to the endless search for new patterns and an in-depth exploration of design and advanced thread techniques. Over 100 separate patterns, never before published, are pictured with step-by-step wrapping instructions. Equally important are 24 different "design variations", almost all of which are applicable to each of the patterns. The total number of different patterns thereby provided becomes mathematically gigantic. In addition, there is an entire section on how to easily and simply design your own patterns. The terms simplify understanding and wrapping even the most complex wraps. Any pattern can be reduced to 2 simple elements: 1) Layout, and 2) Wrapping Sequence.
featdesc::
  • The fastest methods of wrapping the threads and how much tension to use where
  • Methods for accurately and rapidly laying out the wrap
  • A foolproof system for sizing any pattern on any diameter blank
  • How to easily handle a band of many threads wrapped at one time to
  • quickly fill in the background on a closed wrap
  • How to keep track of threads wrapped in a complex pattern, thereby avoiding mistakes and "getting lost
  • Recording details of a wrap for future reference
  • The best techniques of tightening a pattern for professional results
  • A solution to the problem of making Closed Wraps on even sharply tapered blanks
  • Numerous easy ways of fitting in the last threads in a closed wrap for solid thread covering
  • Techniques for all kinds of base wraps - Multiple Thread, Hidden, Endless,and Woven
