Strong and aggressive, there are fish known to reach 700lbs (320kg) waiting to be caught right off British shores. Mike Thrussell has had a long-running battle with the 'porgie' over many years and this has given him an intimate knowledge of this shark and of the most effective techniques to catch it. He describes local and worldwide distribution of the porbeagle with comprehensive coverage of its anatomy, life cycles and habits in order to clarify the principles behind attracting it to the rod. The ideal tides, currents and weather patterns for a shark run are examined, with details on bait presentation, chum trails and the pros and cons of drift fishing and fishing at anchor. Providing both practical information and inspiration for the ambitious sea angler, First Run is a uniquely detailed and irresistible invitation to take up the challenge of this magnificent quarry."

Red paper-covered boards with black cloth spine, spine titled in silver-gilt. Fine in dust-wrapper. "The hardy, multipurpose Dominique chickens that came to the New World with the Pilgrims and later travelled in pioneer saddlebags to help settle the West were once too numerous to count, by 1990 a mere 500 hens survived. This is but a single example of the diminishing diversity of farm animals: half of once-common livestock breeds are endangered, others are already extinct. The need to preserve farm animal diversity is increasingly urgent, says the author of this definitive book on endangered breeds of livestock and poultry. Farmyard animals may hold critical keys for our survival, Jan Dohner warns, and with each extinction, genetic traits of potentially vital importance to our agricultural future or to medical progress are forever lost. This comprehensive book features complete information on the history, characteristics, qualities, and traits of 138 endangered livestock breeds (goats, sheep, swine, cattle, horses, other equines) and 53 poultry breeds (chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese); where these breeds may be seen today; the degree of rarity of each breed in the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada; information on feral livestock populations; 160 colour photographs and over 80 black and white photos and historical illustrations."

Remainder mark to edge else fine new copy. Good solid fly-casting instruction from most certainly one of the best casters and teachers anywhere in the world. "How to improve your distance and accuracy and make casts in any situation." "The fly-casting instruction in this book derives from almost a half century of fishing and teaching, and no matter where you are in your fly-fishing life, from struggling beginner to the person with two rods in every weight, this book can help you do better. Lefty begins with the fundamentals common to all good casts and then goes on to diagnose and demonstrate ways to eliminate a variety of casting problems, including how to tame tailing loops; cast in the wind; quickly and accurately change the direction of a cast; throw a backcast that stays clear of brush; quickly send wet flies and streamers deep with a tuck cast; skip a fly across the water to reach under low-hanging branches; make roll casts, effective mends and much more. No matter how good fly-fishing tackle becomes, how well you deal with the variables on the water will always be a big factor in your fishing success. For as long as you fly-fish, this book will hold the keys." This reprint was first published under the title, Solving Fly Casting Problems. Apart from the pictures on the cover, and the titles, there is no difference between the two. We also have this version in our catalogue (our stock no. 4716). (Previous Price £9.95).

Item Description: Hodder Paperbacks. London. (2008) paperback edition reprint. 8vo paperback (143x 200mm). Pp266. Colour photographs throughout, good bibliography. Mint new copy. This book is the result of ten years of research, the early stages of which were use as the basis of the associated television series. The aim of Mears' and Hillman's project has been to throw some light on the British Mesolithic, when our own ancestors would have lived as hunter-gatherers. "The real problem, .of course, is that organic [archaeological] remains from the past survive so poorly. What we do have is lots of evidence of the use of stone tools." In an attempt to fill the gap, the authors scoured British and European archaeological literature for finds of botanical material, and researched the finer details of British botany. The most well-known part of their project, of course, were their expeditions to study existing hunter-gatherer communities, and their techniques of food gathering and processing. This book presents the authors' resulting understanding, applied in turn to each British species of plant which is known, or suspected, to have been used by Mesolithic Britons. Practical and interesting, but also academically sound - "Most attractive .lays down a research hypothesis of fabulous promise." British Archaeology magazine. Includes a good bibliography. Chapters include: Britain's last hunter-gatherers; A foot in both worlds; Foraging; Hunting; Fungi; The plant foods of our hunter-gatherer ancestors; Bibliography. Bookseller Inventory # 34302

Yellow boards, spine titled in dark blue. Mint in dust-wrapper. "This is the story of a man called Shadrek, whose elephant-poaching exploits in Zimbabwe's Gonarezhou National Park are legend. In his day there was nobody to touch this poacher and hunter extraordinaire. During the 1960s and 1970s every resident in the towns or ranches of the Zimbabwean Lowveld knew about and spoke about Shadrek. Between 1965 and 1975 Shadrek ran rings around the game rangers and police who tried to catch him. When the local black people were asked about Shadrek, they denied any knowledge of the Scarlet Pimpernel of the African bush, yet mention of his name brought enigmatic smiles to their faces. Strangely, the white community, too, despite their disapproval of his plundering of the game reserve's great elephant bulls, had a grudging admiration for Shadrek. For five-and-a-half years during the height of Shadrek's poaching career, the author was the game warden in charge of the Gonarezhou National Park. This is the fascinating account of how Thomson tried to apprehend the elusive character known as Shadrek, and what happened to this legend of the Zimbabwe-Mozambique border.".

Mint new copy. "The bee is probably the most written about species after the human race. As so many commentators through the ages have discovered, there is far more to the insect than its biology and life cycle. In Praise of Bees explores bees' place in human lives and imaginations, from cave paintings and inscribed clay tablets through to our contemporary world. This beautiful book's pages are filled with nuggets of bee science and practical beekeeping with carefully researched references to the role of these fascinating creatures in myth, religion, politics, philosophy and folklore. A rich variety of illustrations, ranging from Old Masters and scientific etchings to modern photographs appear throughout accompanied by a selection of verse, much of it the author's. The text is leavened with a dry wit, resulting in a scholarly but eminently readable exploration of bees, their complex society and their place in the world. This is especially relevant in view of concerns about their present plight and the ecological consequences." Chapters include:- From wild bees to early beekeeping; Messengers of the Gods; Christian bees; Moral and sagacious bees; For tyrrany or Commonwealth?; The bees' own city; Awesome swarms; Bees do it - millennia of mystery; A settled sure abode; Lurking lizards and collapsing colonies; Honey; Medicinal and other 'subtil gifts'; Companions from cradle to grave; Bees in the bonnet - folk customs and curious anecdotes; Warrior bees; From Lanthorn Pane to electron microscope; Beekeeping - a craft and a delight. 9781846891922.
