A Fly Rod of Your Own, Gierach, John
4 Gierach, JohnA Fly Rod of Your Own; 1451618344 / 9781451618341, New Book
2017 Simon & Schuster; 1st Ed, 1st PrintingSigned by the Author
As New 8vo Hardcover, in As New DJ
***(Synopsis) John Gierach is known for his witty, trenchant observations about fly-fishing. In A Fly Rod of Your Own, Gierach once again takes us into his world and scrutinizes the art of fly-fishing. He travels to remote fishing locations where the airport is not much bigger than a garage and a flight might be held up because a passenger is running late. He sings the praises of the skilled pilots who fly to remote fishing lodges in tricky locations and bad weather. He explains why even the most veteran fisherman seems to muff his cast whenever he’s being filmed or photographed. He describes the all-but-impassable roads that fishermen always seem to encounter at the best fishing spots and why fishermen discuss four-wheel drive vehicles almost as passionately and frequently as they discuss fly rods and flies. And while he’s on that subject, he explains why even the most conscientious fisherman always seems to accumulate more rods and flies than he could ever need. As Gierach says, “fly-fishing is a continuous process that you learn to love for its own sake. Those who fish already get it, and those who don’t couldn’t care less, so don’t waste your breath on someone who doesn’t fish.” From Alaska to the Rockies and across the continent to Maine and the Canadian Maritimes, A Fly Rod of Your Own is an ode to those who fish—and they will get it., AB01482.

Near Fine 8vo Hardcover, in Near Fine DJ
(Synopsis) Bache Hamilton Brown was the father of spin fishing in America, the country’s first importer, manufacturer, and promoter of a style of angling that has become the dominant form of fishing in this country. He was one of the most important people in our country’s fishing history, even if he does not always get the recognition that he deserves. Here, for the first time, Robert Halver details the life and career of this important figure, from his childhood in Europe and America to his discovery of spin fishing in the 1920s to the formation of the first spin tackle company in the nation’s history to the design and manufacture of the first American spinning reel. He was widely acknowledged as THE spinning expert during his lifetime. The book is divided into three sections: the first covers his introduction and promotion of spin fishing in America, from 1935-1955. The second contains the detailed history of Bach H. Brown fishing tackle, including the first spinning reels made in America (Bache Brown Luxor), his Airex Equip. Corp. tackle, and finally his Ariex/Div. of Lionel tackle. Finally, there are detailed appendices including his entire 1949 daily fishing diary, some of his writings on spin fishing, detailed biographical information on his family, and a collection of original letters to and from Brown., AB01484.

8 Larson, Todd E. A.Radical Rodmaking: Innovative Bamboo Fly Rods & Their Makers; 1945565101 / 9781945565106, New Book
2017 The Whitefish Press; 1st Ed, 1st PrintingSigned by the Author
Near Fine 8vo Softcover, 
***(Synopsis) The tradition of the split bamboo fly rod goes back over 150 years. During this time, a number of rod makers have achieved legendary status for crafting outstanding fly rods. Many of these makers — including E.W. Edwards, Fred Divine, and Wes Jordan — were iconoclasts who bucked the trends of the day to break new and exciting ground. This tradition of pushing the limits of split bamboo is alive and well, and this book seeks to celebrate these contemporary makers and their craft. The profiles of the radical rods and the men who make them were based on a series of interviews conducted over a period of nearly four years, and the end product is a refreshing look at the exciting world of extreme bamboo fly rods. Just some of the makers interviewed for this book include Marc Aroner, Tim Abbott, Wayne Maca, Jeff Hatton, Tom Smithwick, Glenn Brackett, A.J. Thramer, Rob Smith, Kurt Zumbrunn, Joe Arguello, and Bob Clay, AB01492.

(Synopsis) James McClintock takes us to some of the most breathtaking waters the world has to offer while capturing the drama and serendipity in the beloved sport of fishing. We follow him and his fishing buddies and professional guides, as he fishes off the marshy barrier islands of Louisiana, teeming with life but also ravaged by recent disasters like the Deepwater Horizon spill. We travel to the remote waters of New Zealand's Stewart Island, where the commercial fishing industry is fast disappearing; fish for gigantic Antarctic toothfish through a drilled ice hole at McMurdo Station; and scout for spotted bass on Alabama's Cahaba River, which has the highest diversity of fresh water fish in North America. As we take this global journey, we see how sea level rise, erosion, pollution, water acidification, and overfishing each cause damage. This strikingly beautiful narrative is a must read for anglers and nature lovers alike., AB01445.

Flies for Selective Trout, Swisher, Doug; Swisher, Sharon
13 Swisher, Doug; Swisher, SharonFlies for Selective Trout; 1510717161 / 9781510717169, New Book
2017 Skyhorse Publishing; 1st Ed, 1st PrintingSigned by the Author
Near Fine 8vo Hardcover, in Near Fine DJ
***(Synopsis) Back in the ’80s, right after Selective Trout was first published, many fly-tying books came on the market that were pushing the merits of the types of flies Carl Richards and Doug Swisher developed, like the No-Hackle Dun, Hen Spinner, Emerger, and Still-Born. Those were types of flies that had never been written about before. Then, a few years later, in the early 2000s, the emphasis switched drastically to what you would call streamer and attractor patterns. Flies for Selective Trout covers a few of the “No Hackle Types” and many of Doug’s new attractor flies, like glow in the dark, ultraviolet, brush flies, advanced pupas, and our action-dubbing versions—with wiggly legs right in the dubbing! The Swishers also include tips on how to fish the new flies, as well as where they were developed. Pick up a copy of Flies for Selective Trout to learn about all of the new materials and tying techniques that make these new flies so exciting! 160 pgs., AB01486.

15 Weamer, PaulThe Bug Book: A Fly Fisher's Guide to Trout Stream Insects; 1934753424 / 9781934753422, New Book
2017 Headwater Books; 1st Ed, 1st PrintingSigned by the Author
Near Fine 8vo Hardcover, No Jacket, as issued
(Description) Very slightly bumped corner otherwise an As New book! ***(Synopsis, by author) In this book, I try to relieve some of the reticence about trout stream insects that makes many anglers feel inadequate and uneasy. Many excellent books provide very detailed information about specific hatches. But that's not this book's goal. This book is written for new anglers who want a basic understanding of aquatic insects or more seasoned fly fishers who want to take their skills to the next level; those who want to know not only if their flies will work but why they'll work as well. I remember when I was first learning to fly fish, and I read about complicated Latin names or confusing stages of aquatic insect development. I was lost. It was as if the whole fly fishing world was born knowing about these things, and I was left out. This book's aim is to provide basic aquatic insect knowledge that will not only help you to understand more about trout stream insects, but it will also help you catch more trout on your next fishing trip. It will help you to understand why you should tie one fly to your leader rather than another to imitate the hatches you encounter., AB01467.
