Slight use but solidly intact, second-hand paperback. "Jess Miller fished Atlantic salmon on Scotland's River Tay from 1958, keeping a record of his fishing happenings from which he created this book and competition in support of Atlantic salmon conservation. He worked on the Tay District Advisory Committee and had a hand in the removal of 17 netting stations from the Tay estuary, saving millions of salmon over time." "A glimpse of the past, when the Tay had truly huge fish! Characters and old friends really brought to life, with a real feeling of being a bystander watching it all happen." John Buckland in A Guide to Salmon Flies. "My imagination ran riot the same as the singing reels in the stories. A difficult book to put down, great fun, very entertaining." Paul Zissler. Ten of the hundred stories in this collection are untrue. The author is running a competition for all readers to spot which ones. (N.B. All current copies say 'Review Copy' on the front end-paper). A fine book in the George Leonard Herter tradition. Despite being dated 2012, I contributed an advertisement to this edition in Spring of 2013. Bookseller Inventory # 37462

Item Description: Published By the author (Third Leaf Publications). Llandysul, Ceredigion. 2013 1st edition. 8vo paperback (137 x 215mm). Pp248. B/w cartoon illustrations by Ken Guy. Fine new first edition paperback. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. After Chas Griffin had published this book himself, with some success, it was taken up by a major publisher and re-issued in a new form. This is a copy of the first edition, signed by the author. "From the popular series In the Organic Way." "Ever wonder what it's like to run an organic smallholding starting from scratch?" Chapters include: Garlic; Courgettes; Crop news 1989; Sheep and lambing; Crop news 1990; Crop news 1991; Commercial vs garden; Organic vs vegetarian; Water problems; Muck and spreading; Orchard; What a beautiful place; Romantic vs death; Geese; Runner beans; Polytunnels; Raised beds; Brambles; Radishes; Hay; Wind; Tractor ritual; Rabbits; Bees; Spuds; House music; Foxes; Shearing; We're all different; The tale of the kale. This book began with a column of the author's in the Henry Doubleday Research Association newsletter, and subsequently their magazine, The Organic Way. Part amusing memoir, part useful information and observation. This "a book of two halves, inter-twined: the articles themselves which are obviously themed; and the rest, which is new material (nearly three quarters of the book, in fact) that first of all elaborates a little on the article's content, and then switches into historical mode to explain why we chose smallholding over accountancy or piracy, and how two utter novices went about getting a system up and more or less running, when one of them didn't know hay from straw (names are named). The inter-twining might cause readers of a tidy persuasion some heart-ache. .I promise you you will soon get used to an article on 'Cropping in 1989' being followed by something about making a pig's ear of learning to plough in 1984.".

Item Description: Skyhorse Publishing. New York. 2012 1st edition. 8vo (155 x 235mm). Ppxii,160. Colour photographs, b/w illustrations by Steve Whitlock. Dark blue paper-covered boards, spine titled in gilt. Boards just slightly bumped else very good in dust-wrapper. The chronicle of a twenty-three year pursuit of dozens of IGFA world line-class records, mostly in the Gulf of Mexico. "For most anglers, catching a world-record fish is something they can only fantasize about. .But if the reason you fish is to catch a world-record fish, then luck is only a very small part of it, as Robert Cunningham has learned in the course of a long quest during which he has caught fifty-seven world-record fish. Cunningham's pursuit of record fish began on the remote and austere Chandeleur Islands off the Louisiana coast, which he reached flying his own seaplane, and where he chased and landed several world-record redfish. Cunningham then moved offshore, where he took record cobia and dolphin on both conventional tackle and with a fly rod, and set an astonishing eleven world records in one year. Cunningham has caught record fish in the sloughs of the Mobile River Delta, the interior lakes of the Bahamas, and along tide rips more than one hundred miles offshore in the Gulf of Mexico. He has fought potential world-record fish for eight hours, only to lose them at boatside, and then gone back for more, and along the way learned all manner of angling skills as well as the ability to shake off the (literal) bas breaks. His account of one angler's obsession is full of humor, disappointment, and triumph." Chapters include:- Eight hours in the ring; Getting the fever; Win some, lose some; Lessons learned; Old game, new tricks; Moving offshore; Two men in a boat; Custom boat, unique fish; Doggone it; Teaming up on cobia; The oldest fish story; A big rip; In deliverance country; Tarpon in the Minors; Louisiana legend; On the Oklahoma Flat; The chase goes on.

B/w photographs and illustrations, Slight use but solidly intact, second-hand paperback. "Nineteenth century Glamorganshire was richly endowed with sporting squires who, when they were not coursing the hare, casting a fly to a wily trout or salmon, or shooting the abundance of game birds and wildfowl available, took great delight in following the numerous packs of beagles, foxhounds, harriers, otterhounds and staghounds, which were kept in the county. .This miscellany tells, in episodic fashion, the story of the life, and sporting activities of Wyndham William Lewis, Esquire, of The Heath, Cardiff, South Wales, in Breconshire, Glamorganshire, and Somersetshire. Many of W.W. Lewis's relations, friends, and contemporary Masters of Hounds, are also featured." Most of the material is drawn from the newspapers of the aforementioned districts. A wide-ranging and interesting book which touches on numerous subjects, people and places. Bookseller Inventory # 37500

Item Description: Bloomsbury. London. (2013) later reprint. 8vo (137 x 222mm). Pp368. B/w vignettes. Black boards, spine titled in gilt. Mint in dust-wrapper. The author, a professional conservationist and an officer of the RSPB, travels (in England, Scotland, Germany and the USA) in search of the wild goshawk, and uses this as the framework around which he builds a searching examination of the species' historical and contemporary position. Interesting, frustrating and irritating - the subject matter is good but I got a bit fed up with his constant harping on about the sins of gamekeepers (when almost all raptors, including goshawks, are still on the increase), but mainly because of his inconsistent use of capitals for animal names. So Otter, Rabbit, Buzzard and Pheasant get capitalised (as though there were only one species of each) while sparrow, crow and woodpecker don't, leading to sentences where the initial letters jump up and down like yo-yos.

Item Description: The Bodley Head. London. 1968 1st edition. 8vo (142 x 222mm). Pp206. B/w photographs, illustrations & maps by the author. Blue boards, spine titled in gilt. Large gift inscription to front end-paper else good-plus in rubbed and torn, price-clipped dust-wrapper. "When the lookout gives the signal, the rocket shoots into the air and 'Baleia! Baleia!' is shouted from house to house; within minutes the whaleboats are manned, launched and heading for the open sea. This is the scene when a whale is sighted at Horta, on the island of Fayal in the Azores, the only place [at the time of publication] from which the sperm whale is still hunted with the hand harpoon in small open boats, with only oars and sails and paddles, as it has been almost continuously since the first whaleboats crossed the Atlantic from Nantucket in 1765. The climax of the urgency pervading this book is the hunt itself, and the author gives an enthralling account of how the struggle, far out to sea, is brought silently and desperately to a finish, before the whale is towed home for the final cutting-in, the trying-out, and all the complex operations of the factory. Mr Venables follows every move in highly technical detail, and his descriptions of the hunt and kill have a gruesome reality." Many good illustrations by Bernard Venables, rather in the manner - appropriately enough - of those by Tunnicliffe and Sheppard in The Old Man and The Sea. Bookseller Inventory # 37468
