5 IGLAUER, EDITH. Fishing With John.

This is the story of an adventure. In 1974, in middle age, Edith Iglauer, who had been born into a comfortable well-off family in Cleveland and had lived a privileged, urban, sophisticated life in New York, met a commercial salmon fisherman in British Columbia, married him, and spent the better part of the next four years, until Daly's death, on his forty-one-foot troller, the Morekelp. The book is also the story of John Daly, an impassioned and greatly talented fisherman who was convinced he could "think like a fish"; an amateur philosopher who worked out, and followed, an original set of beliefs and principles; a mystic who, after forty years of fishing, felt himself to be at one with the sea and the mountains along the British Columbia coast; a scholarly-looking, high-spirited, full-blown eccentric who covered the white walls of his pilothouse with his favorite quotations in bold black letters ("Lawyers spend their professional careers shoveling smoke. O. W. Holmes"), kept a copy of The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam under the mattress of his bunk, listened, between fish, to Mozart on the CBD radio, carried on polite conversations with his stove, and took hundreds of photographs of sunsets at sea, each of which was individually fixed, with place and circumstances, in his memory; an outdoorsman who hated and avoided cities and went so far as to have an aversion to architects because they designed buildings; and a man who was known everywhere along the B.C. coast for his integrity and noble character. Moreover, the book is love story.

Oregon State University Press, Corvallis. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
The Pacific Northwest is water country. This far corner of the world is distinguished and defined by rivers, streams, lakes, reservoirs, estuaries, and an ocean. Where there is so much water, there's fishing. And where there's fishing, there is bound to be writing about fishing because, as Thomas McGuane observed, "you can't say enough about it." Now there's a book for people who can't read enough about it either. Fishing the Northwest collects stories and essays by twenty-two of the best angling writers in the region. Veteran flyfisher Love has combed the vast literature on angling to create an exciting blend of subjects and styles that puts readers in the water next to fishing authors of great renown as well as noteworthy newer voices. Included are famous early writers like Zane Grey, who frequented Northwest rivers, and Roderick Haig-Brown, who defined angling literature for the region. Also spotlighted is a new wave of excellent writing that has exploded in the Northwest over the past two decades, calling on a host of gifted authors like Ted Leeson and Jessica Maxwell--one of several women who prove that it's no longer just a man's preserve. The book ranges from Alaska to the Rogue River in southern Oregon, the Olympic Mountains and Vancouver Island to the Continental Divide in Montana. From the advice of angling eminence Enos Bradner to the spirited fiction of Ken Kesey, from Robin Carey's account of getting acquainted with a new river to Lorian Hemingway's first flyfishing adventure, Fishing the Northwest is the ultimate reader for anyone who, in Norman Maclean's famous words, is "haunted by waters." Even if you've never felt a tug on a line, you'll discover in this book that some of the Northwest's best writing flows straight from its rivers. All royalties from Fishing the Northwest will be donated to the Pacific Rivers Council, a non-profit conservation organization dedicated to restoring, protecting, and enhancing American rivers.

University Press of New England: 2010. First Edition. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Most anglers are well aware of the popular game fish that inhabit the Northeast, including the largemouth bass, the rainbow trout, and the yellow perch. But the region's inland waters boast a much broader array of fish than first meets the eye (or hook). The father-and-son team of David A. Patterson and Matt Patterson have pursued both game fish and bait fish in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and New York. In Freshwater Fish of the Northeast, they describe more than 60 different species, from the well known to the obscure, including the redfin pickerel, the blueback trout, and the slimy sculpin. This colorful and helpful guide includes detailed information on habits, habitats, history, and more. In order to best capture the look and appeal of these fish in their native waters, most of the images are based on the authors' own live catches. The pencil-and-acrylic illustrations render each species in lifelike detail, with close attention given to unique physical characteristics. Both art book and guidebook, this volume will stir some fond memories of fish caught—and a few of those that got away.

15 SEAROCK, KEVIN. Troutsmith: An Angler's Tales And Travels.
University of Wisconsin Press, Terrace Books: 2013. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Kevin Searock transports readers to the waterside as he explores the timeless relationship between the outdoors and the sport of fishing. Whether standing in a quiet Wisconsin creek, by a high-country lake in Wyoming, or on the grassy margins of England's hallowed chalkstreams, Kevin Searock believes anglers are driven by a vision: "There are things on this good Earth that only the angler sees, and one of them is the breathless beauty of a trout emerging from a river." Here, in this evocative collection of fishing essays, he takes readers under the surface of this ancient sport, casting a spell of water-magic. Although trout are central to many of the stories, bluegills, bass, and other warm-water fish also grace these pages. Telling stories in thoughtful prose, Searock writes about fly-tying, collecting fishing literature, journaling, and traveling in a way that makes Troutsmith a rich and varied meditation on fishing and the outdoors. "We all, if we are lucky, find ways of loving the world. Fishing is how Kevin Searock loves the world. These essays, like all good love stories, are windows into a strange and obsessive heart. Searock's fishing illuminates our land and waters and the nature and mystery of how we love."—David Allan Cates, author of Freeman Walker Kevin Searock is an avid fisherman, photographer, and outdoors writer whose articles have appeared in Gray's Sporting Journal, Midwest Fly Fishing, Wisconsin Outdoor Journal, and Wisconsin Trails. He lives in Baraboo, Wisconsin, and teaches advanced placement biology and chemistry at Portage High School. "Most fisher folks read fishing books at times that they cannot fish. In Troutsmith, Kevin Searock takes us fishing, writing about great adventures with fish, water, plants, geology, travel, and companions. We imagine being there with him: I could do that; I have been there; I'm going to go there first chance I get!" —Jerry Davis, Wisconsin Outdoor News
