The Sports Afield Treasury of Fly Fishing by Tom Paugh

"The Almanac has always been a potpourri of outdoor-related subjects, everything from nature quizzes, to wild game recipes (like antelope enchiladas), to bad jokes about game wardens, to how to call predators by sucking the palm of your hand.... Now, for the first time, all the best of the wonderful fishing-related subject matter has been rooted out by editor Golad ("Mr. Almanac") and is concentrated between these covers. The Sports Afield Fishing Almanac has information on all your favorite game species, including bass (large-mouth, smallmouth, striped, you name it), the trouts, panfish, walleyes, the pikes and numerous saltwater species. The book tells you how to catch them by multitudinous methods. All you want to know about tackle and gear and boats, on ad infinitum and, of course, how to prepare, store, and cook your succulent catch in a variety of ways. If that does not seem to be enough you will also find informative nuggets about weather, safety, health, fishing regulations, travel tips for fishermen and even fishing quizzes. No one has actually counted...but there are far more than a thousand valuable bits and pieces of angling wisdom to rummage through." - Tom Paugh from his "Introduction" (81/2 X 11, 160 pages, articles: b&w photos, illustrations, diagrams, charts)

Great book, deliver in great condition as promised. Thank you!
The Sports Afield Treasury of Fly Fishing is a fantastic collection of fishing articles. It's made up of stories and articles written by some of the greatest outdoor writers of the 20th Century. Throughout this book, you'll be carried away to another time and place, absorbed in the story setting. While reading most of the articles, the descriptions are so vivid, you'll almost be able to see the tumbling stream in your mind, smell the campfires and coffee, and feel the tug of a hard-fighting trout on the end of your line. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in good outdoor literature.
