1 Borger, Gary A.Fly Gear; New Book
2014 Tomorrow River Press; 1st Ed, 1st PrintingSigned by the Author
Near Fine 8vo Hardcover, No Jacket, as issued
(Description) As new hardcover in photographic paper cover, thus no DJ issued. ***(Synopsis) Fly Fishing, the Book Series, Volume Five -- Fly fishing is a sport rich in gear, and successful fly fishers know that selecting and using equipment is just as much a part of their presentation strategy as stalking, casting, or reading waters. They clearly understand that paying attention to the details is a key part of all aspects of fly fishing, including equipment selection. In this book, Gary Borger thoroughly discusses the how, when, where, and why to develop the ideal equipment selection strategy for your fishing. There’s a detailed discussion on the evolution and speciation of the fly line, fly fishing’s most unique and defining piece of equipment; precise definitions and carefully crafted descriptions of rod action, flexion profile, swing weight, and CCS determination; the ten characteristics of reels that must be considered; extensive notes on the origins and construction of leaders, including the Uni-Body; an intimate look at essential knot tying parameters, and much more., AB01314.

2015 Skyhorse Publishing; 1st Thus, 1st Printing
Near Fine 4to Spiral Hardcover, 
(Synopsis) Reprinted from Mike's original books, but in a spiral-bound format that makes its use as a manual much more effective.

Mike Dawes’s book contains three hundred line drawings and two hundred color photographs and covers nearly four hundred different varieties of fly patterns that include nymphs, dry flies, wet flies, lures, and streamers. The Fly Tier’s Manual also covers the basics of what materials you’ll need, what equipment to buy, and even the basics of how to fish with each of the ties that you’ll tie.

2012 Ka-Pish Cove Books; 1st Ed, 1st PrintingSigned by the Author
Near Fine 8vo Softcover, 
(Synopsis) An intelligent and engaging series of articles and essays previously published in Gray’s Sporting Journal and several other periodicals. Primarily based on the author’s development as a fly fisher from his earliest start in a Virginia Smallmouth stream through his first West Coast Steelhead, with a few allusive fictional essays thrown in that may have come more from significant personal experience than the imagination of a wistful and observant philosopher of the sport. An enjoyable read whether you are already sitting streamside or are still considering the merits of the sport from your armchair., AB01186.

2011 Flyfisher's Classic Library; 1st Ed, 1st Printing
Near Fine 4to Hardcover, in Near Fine DJ
(Synopsis) If there is one milestone in the whole of salmon fishing literature which no fisherman should be without, it is George Mortimer Kelson's The Salmon Fly: how to dress it and how to use it, first published in 1895. Terry Griffiths, in his brilliant new book, The Essential Kelson has made a meticulous study of the complete writings of Kelson, showing how far ahead of his time he really was. Terry has invited some of the world's foremost classic salmon fly-tyers to interpret and tie many of Kelson's extremely complex patterns, giving us a new understanding of his unique take on the classic salmon fly. These have been beautifully photographed and lavishly reproduced on high quality paper. This definite new interpretation of Kelson, his philosophy and work, will doubtless enhance his deserved reputation as the classic salmon fly-tyer by which so many modern tyers set their sights., AB01025.

2009 Stackpole Books; 1st Ed, 1st PrintingSigned by the Author
Near Fine 4to Hardcover, in Near Fine DJ
(Description) Brand new Signed 1st Printing! *** (Synopsis) Nymphs for Streams and Stillwaters is broken logically into four parts. The first part is an introduction to the way nymphing shapes itself with notes on streamside and lakeside observation, nymph selection based on what you observe, and recommendations on tools and materials for both basic and advanced methods for tying nymphs that take trout. The second part deals with the selection and detailed tying of all sorts of effective searching nymph patterns for moving water. The third part examines imitative nymphs for moving waters, tightly relating naturals to their imitations. The fourth part covers stillwater nymphs. Trout are more often selective in lakes and ponds, and the things they eat in stillwaters are often unlike trout foods in rivers and streams. Hughes takes a subject that has been considered complex and confusing and makes it understandable, presenting the information that you really need to improve your tying and your fishing. Nymphs for Streams and Stillwaters is destined to be the step-by-step reference to tying and fishing every nymph you'll ever need. Filled with good advice from a trusted master of the subject, it is the most thorough and enjoyable book about selecting, tying, and fishing nymphs that has ever been written., AB01485.

2013 Self-Published; 1st Ed, 1st PrintingSigned by the Author
Near Fine 8vo Hardcover, in Near Fine DJ
(Synopsis) If you like to read and if you like to fish, you’ll like this book. It will quickly become one of your favorites. Read it for the “why I fish” and “what I get from fishing” messages woven into his stories. He doesn’t try to tell us where or how to catch fish. That’s O.K. There are other fishermen who can do that. What none of them can do is share their fishing experiences in the way that Prof. Larmouth brings his streamside thoughts to the printed page. At one time he graded my writing at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. It was with some trepidation that I asked him to write a fishing column for our fledgling statewide outdoor newspaper in 1994. He accepted and the result was about 14 months’ worth of “Riffles and Back Eddies” before we had to sell the newspaper. I always looked forward to reading Prof. Larmouth’s columns when they came in. I guess, on paper, I was his editor, but that was just on paper. I never changed so much as a comma or period in any of his writings. I thought his fishing stories were perfect, just as they were., AB01213.

2012 Frank Amato Publications; 1st Ed, 1st Printing
Near Fine 4to Hardcover, in Near Fine DJ
(Synopsis) Bill and John McMillan share a view of rivers, salmon, steelhead, and the Pacific Northwest. The father and son have found a common bond in rivers, and this bond is clearly reflected in their writing and photography. Few people are so enamored with the life and history of rivers and salmon. The essence of May the Rivers Never Sleep is the physical and biological tapestry of river time—month by month, a concept fostered by Roderick Haig-Brown. Well-respected anglers in their own right, Bill and John have spent thousands of hours viewing rivers and fish, above and below water. Their revelations from snorkeling in rivers have led to its spread as a tool of science to protect fish, rivers, and related wildlife. The essays and gorgeous photographs in this book reflect Bill and John’s lives largely spent on rivers as anglers, naturalists, and scientists—men struck by the wonder of the life of rivers. Pick up this book and be transported to the lush rivers of the Pacific Northwest - anytime, anywhere., AB01212.

A compelling story that appeals to both men & women, especially those who love the outdoors or fly fishing. **Logan McCrea has lost everything he values - wealth and career, family and love. But an unlikely contact gives him a temporary job: spend six months on Oregon's Deschutes River checking out a low-priority and probably meaningless terrorist lead. It's a chance for Logan to rebuild his life and maybe reconnect with his 19-year-old daughter, Samantha, who was seriously injured in an accident. Logan and Sam pack up what little they have left and move to Maupin, a small town on the Deschutes, and face an uncertain and ultimately dangerous future. More than a thriller, River in the Sun explores life's big questions: Where do you find love? Can you overcome your past? What is the nature of divine grace? And is it morally wrong to catch steelhead on nymphs?, AB01268.
