Innovative Flies and Techniques, Beatty, Al & Gretchen
1 Beatty, Al & GretchenInnovative Flies and Techniques; 1571883495 / 9781571883490, New Book
2005 Frank Amato Publications; Limited EditionSigned by the Author
As New 4to Hardcover, in As New DJ
(Description) Limited Edition of 125 Signed/Numbered copies. While working on The Federation of Fly Fishers Fly Pattern Encyclopedia it quickly became clear to the Beattys that another book was necessary. Many of the flies in the Encyclopedia were worthy of more than just a fly plate and dressing, so they are included in this book with step-by-step photos and descriptions. They've also included many new flies, but each is included for the same reasons: the pattern is an innovative design, a simple but effective idea, or makes improvements on an existing fly. This book is so much more than a fly pattern book, it's full of many creative and innovative ideas for creating productive fishing flies., AB00012.

Bamboo Rod Making: Making Split Bamboo Bait Casting Rods from Finished Blanks, Bell, Don A.
2 Bell, Don A.Bamboo Rod Making: Making Split Bamboo Bait Casting Rods from Finished Blanks; 1936702339 / 9781936702336, New Book
2012 The Whitefish Press; Limited Edition
As New 8vo Hardcover, No Jacket, as issued
(Description) Limited to 100 Numbered copies. 7 x 5, small 8vo desktop sized. ***(Synopsis) In 1936, a rodmaker with thirty years of experience under his belt took out advertisements in the back of a number of sporting journals. His name was Don A. Bell, and he had just authored a book on rodmaking called Making Bamboo Rods. It was a book unique in the annals of rodmaking. Bell's book was not your ordinary rodmaker's work. Instead, it was an introductory work on one of the most overlooked of all the rodmaker's subjects: the split bamboo bait casting rod. In this work, Don A. Bell showed an appreciative Great Depression audience how to make a superb bait casting rod from a finished blank. With chapters on selecting bamboo, the parts of the two-piece casting rod, attaching the ferrules, winding, varnishing, rod staining, and even determining the weight and length of rods, it contains some charming descriptions of the rodmaker's art. With the text taken from the second updated edition, and with all of the original illustrations reproduced, this slender but elegant little volume may just teach you to appreciate the bamboo bait casting rod, and perhaps inspire you to make one yourself! It will certainly help you to better appreciate, understand, and identify the tell-tale sign of bamboo rods (both fly and bait casting) built by the techniques discussed in Bell's book. Long unavailable to even the most ardent collectors and book hounds, Bamboo Rod Making will now take its place on the shelf of students and historians of rodmaking. It will no longer be one of the forgotten rodmaking texts in history., AB01159.

Making Strip-Built Fly Rods from Various Woods on a Lathe, Betts, John
5 Betts, JohnMaking Strip-Built Fly Rods from Various Woods on a Lathe; 1571884114 / 9781571884114, New Book
2007 Frank Amato Publications; Limited EditionSigned by the Author
As New 4to Hardcover, in Near Fine DJ
(Description) One of the Signed/Numbered leatherbound limited edition of 150 copies of this book. Includes an original pencil drawing by the author dedicated to that particular volume. No two drawings are the same. Drawings are numbered matching the limitation number of the book, tipped in at the FFEP. *** (Synopsis) JOHN BETTS' MAKING STRIP-BUILT FLY Rods from Various Woods on a Lathe, entirely hand wrought, is a landmark in our sport. It is, to be sure, about making rods of various woods. It is also an intricately woven commentary on the history of angling: its crafts, its theories, and its art, to say nothing of its implicit commentary on making books themselves. The book is a complex set of signs that fly fishing is not after all, nor does it have to be, just another market-driven industry as the young entreprenuers of angling today are so carelessly fond of calling., AB00108.

2012 Reel Lines Press; Limited EditionSigned by the Author
As New 4to Hardcover, No Jacket, as issued
(Description) Limited Edition of 100 individually signed, dated ('12) and numbered books, each featureing a unique remarque. ***(Synopsis) This book aspires to re-introduce three of John Betts' early works to a new generation of fly tiers and anglers. The originals were privately published and have become rare gems in fly tying literature. The three books re-published here are: Synthetic Flies (1980) explores the use of synthetic materials and introduces innovative materials along with tying and coloration techniques; Flies with an 'Edited Hackle' (1982) examines alternative materials and techniques to traditionally hackled dry flies; And Catch the Hatch was published as a stream-side guide to mayfly duns. Although reprinted here in gray scale, fly tiers will find the descriptions, sizes and coloration an invaluable aid to tying imitations., AB01145.

1991 Tomorrow River Press; Limited EditionSigned by the Author
As new 4to Hardcover, in Slipcase
{Website discounts not valid on this title, please call if other books are being ordered with a discount code} (Description) Limited Edition #78 of 450 copies, bound in full letherette and housed in matching slipcase. *** (Synopsis) Designing Trout Flies is a refreshingly new, idea book overflowing with practical information to help you recognize that just right fly - for both opportunistically and selectively feeding trout. In addition to a thorough discussion of the primary and secondary triggering characteristics of each of the fish's food organisms, Gary presents stimulating and highly informed discussions on material selection, tying procedures, and design concepts. The detailed descriptions, region by region, of the most used sizes and colors of flies to match the fish's food organisms are an invaluable aid to tying or buying the most effective imitations. The many illustrative anecdotes - drawn from Gary's 35 years of fly fishing - not only make the book fun to read but highly instructional as well. All of this in the clear, precise language that is Gary's trademark. Complementing and thoroughly illustrating the comprehensive text are 230 beautifully detailed drawings by Jason Borger. Sixteen pages of full-color photos show the flies larger than life size. The carefully designed layout and extensive index make access to the contents swift and simple., AB00976.

A New copy, still in the original shrink-wrap!! *** (Synopsis) This intimate glimpse behind John Gierach's vise focuses on the trout flies he has found most successful and how he ties them. There are chapters on how he developed as a fly tyer - from being a hopeless tinkerer who tried every pattern there was to settling on a large handful of favorite patterns that now catch most of his trout... Throughout, the book is punctuated with fishing stories and observations on days astream as well as days at his vise, all in Gierach's inimitable style... rambling a little, following this thread and that, always full of wit and deft experience and that special down-home style that has made him America's favorite fly-fishing author., AB00244.

But Gierach knows that there is more to fishing than actually catching fish, or as he puts it, The real lessons of fishing are the ones that come after you've caught some fish. They have to do with things like solitude, quietude, patience, perspective, humor and the sublime coffee break In this new book, Gierach visits his favorite trout-filled waters, from the Colorado foothills to British Columbia and points between, recounting both memorable fishing spots and memorable fish., AB00255.

Very Good 8vo Full-Leather, in Slipcase
{Website discounts not valid on this title, please call if other books are being ordered with a discount code} (Description) One of a Limited Edition of 110 copies, bound in Morrocan Leather, and signed by the Author! This copy is marked Binder's Copy, and is housed in a cardboard slipcase. The book has some mild scuffing at edges and corners. Slipcase lightly soiled, but just a plain cardboard slipcase. *** (Synopsis) The secret places are the soul of fishing. It may be a private spring creek with armed guards where there are huge browns and lots of them, or it may just be an unknown beaver pond where a handful of brook trout have grown to a whopping eleven inches. In either case, it's a spot that, by the simple virtue of being left more or less alone, has reached its full potential.So begins this brilliant short book, in which half a dozen such places are featured. There is a pool made memorable because it is part of a risky childhood adventure; hidden local streams; sections of a wealthy ranch; secret stretches full of rattlesnakes and private ponds with trout as long as your leg. All are made magically vivid by Gierach's special prose - and all stand starkly against a more public natural world increasingly threatened with ecological disaster., AB00379.
