Item Description: William Morrow & Co. New York. (1993) ND later reprint. Tall 8vo (135 x 242mm). Pp352. B/w illustrations, photographic end-papers. White-cloth backed blue boards, spine titled in green. Rather used, accumulation of small faults. Good reading copy in like dust-wrapper. Howell Raines is a professional journalist and long-time flyfisher. In this book he recounts his fly fishing adventures, in which he gives a good account of the historical and contemporary social background of the places he fishes and the people he fishes with. Finding some sort of link between this variegated collection of people is the thread running through the whole narrative. Incidental to this, Raines extends the same principle to his family, principally his father and his sons, and in so doing avoids any note of self-indulgence which might have tempted other authors. More than just a collection of episodes, this book offers a connected narrative from beginning to end and is never less than a good, solid read. Bookseller Inventory # 36836

Item Description: Atlantic Monthly Press. New York. 2000 1st edition thus. 8vo (160 x 235mm). Ppxviii,509. B/w illustrations by Mari Lyons. White cloth-backed boards, spine titled in gilt. Very good in slightly torn dust-wrapper. "[Nick Lyons] has at last assembled his favourite pieces into an illustrated collection that will be enjoyed by anyone who fishes or loves to read about fishing. Lyons is a pleasure to read because he so admirably re-creates the essence of angling: the meditative rhythm of casting, the burst of adrenaline when a fish strikes, the quiet joy of standing in a river. He recounts delightful stories of eccentric fishermen, heroic successes and abysmal failures, treacherous streams, and particularly wily fish that elude even the cleverest angler's schemes." A compilation of the very best writing, taken from several of his earlier books, from this most literate of angling authors, Nick Lyons. Well worth a read. "Nick Lyons writes about life and fishing with a compelling mix of familiarity and innocence. He knows what he's talking about, but it never ceases to amaze and delight him. And he's honest. This is real fishing done by real people in the world as it is, not one of those stylized versions of reality where the hero always catches fish and never has to go to work." (John Gierach).

Several pages formerly stuck together with damp at bottom edge, no loss of text, pages cockled. Horrible, stained reading copy. "Whether they use one or not, most tiers do not understand the full potential of a rotary vise - including many of the leading fly tiers in the industry. Most tiers are still just using them to see the bottom of the flies they are tying, but their uses and advantages go far beyond this. Now with this book, the Beattys share their decades of experience and knowledge to unlock the mystery behind this type of vise and you won't believe what you have been missing. [This book explores] a sampling of true rotary vises currently available on the market, guides tiers through the sometimes frustrating adjustments needed to use their rotary vise to the fullest, shares tying tips and tricks for quickly tying effective flies, and ties 36 flies - for fresh and saltwater species - with clear instructions and step-by-step photography. There is no other book that explains everything you need to know about rotary vises and their many advantages, you will be amazed at how a rotary vise will improveyour fly-tying.".

Item Description: Collins. New Naturalist Series. 1952 1st edition. Ppxvi,268. 8vo (152 x 222mm). Colour & b/w photographs, illustrations, bibliography. Green buckram. Rather used and stained, many annotations. Good only, lacks dust-wrapper. One of the most important and comprehensive books on entomology for the flyfisherman. First published in the prestigious New Naturalist Series in 1952, this reprint presents an inexpensive way of obtaining what is now a quite scarce book.

Item Description: Tropic Isle Publishers, Inc. Coral Gables, Florida. (1953) 1956 2nd edition. 8vo comb-bound paperback (155 x 229mm). Pp136. B/w photographs, maps, adverts throughout. Card covers. Creasing to covers, slight browning but good-plus. An angling guide for the tourist published by Tropic Isle Publishers, Florida, on behalf of the Development Board, Nassau, Bahamas. The book covers fly, lure and bait fishing for marlin, tuna, sailfish, wahoo, kingfish, barracuda, amberjack, bonefish, permit, tarpon and the various species of reef fish as well as information on areas to fish and tournament fishing. At the end of the book is a list of world record game fish together with rules and procedures on making a claim. "It is hoped, for readers who already have cruised and fished the Bahamas, that this book will freshen treasured memories of inviting, exotic islands perched in an immensity of sea and sky. That it will bring into sharp focus half forgotten scenes - a jumping marlin, spray-flecked and wild, outlined against the shimmering horizon. the delicate rainbow that hovers above the hissing line as a hooked bonefish makes its mad bid for freedom. the foaming surge of a striking tuna. a man-o-war bird soaring effortlessly beneath a cottony cloud. For readers who have yet to taste the endless, exciting pleasures that the Bahamas offer, it is hoped that this guide will whet their appetites for every course on the varied menu of fascinating angling attractions.".

Item Description: Published by Sara Eade. Aberllefenni. 2015 1st edition. Large 4to (210 x 297mm). Pp74. Colour & b/w photographs throughout, b/w illustrations maps, bibliography. Fine new copy. ".Personal notes, research on owners, products and location of foundaries in North Wales." "The slate quarries of North Wales .were once one of the major providers of roofing materials over the world, and like many industries with a strong regional focus, they soon needed to develop their subsidiaries in the form of foundries and workshops that could design, develop and produce the specialist machinery they required. These places could then in turn also serve .other extractive industries, both in the area and beyond, as well as the agricultural economy, and of growing communities which had come to demand all the conveniences of Victorian life, such as gas-lighting and proper drains. Their output varies from the sophisticated marine engines and ingenious 'coffee pot' locomotives produced by De Winton to humdrum but important items like drain-covers. This is a story which Pred Hughes tells with verve and enthusiasm, in this well-researched and attractively produced volume. Our author stands within a great tradition of the skilled craftsman-historian, whose observations and judgements are based not only on detailed delving in archives and on oral history but also on a detailed practical knowledge of the techniques and processes that are described here." Chapters include: Bethesda and Bangor; Llanberis and Dinorwic; Caernarfon; Dyffryn Nantlle; Portmadog; Tanygrisiau, Blaenau Ffestiniog; Newtown; Products of the foundries, makers, patents and patentees. A good book - a great read, superb photographs. Should be compulsory for all who are unaware of what a country with a functioning economy looks like. Bookseller Inventory # 36847
