A thorough introduction to an increasingly popular fishing sport. Did you know that kayak fishing has shot up in popularity over the past few years? Americans take more than 38 million kayak fishing trips every year. While most outdoors enthusiasts think of kayaks simply as boats, there are many great reasons to take up fishing from a kayak. A kayak is cheaper to maintain than a larger fishing boat; it can be launched from almost anywhere and piloted by almost anyone; and kayakers can access places larger boats can't, opening up new fishing spots. So join in on the fun with The Ultimate Guide to Kayak Fishing. Joel Spring guides readers through choosing a kayak from the various types, transporting it, and outfitting it with the absolute necessities. He covers vital safety information, from life-preservers and waterproof cell-phone cases to boat traffic and weather concerns. Finally, he offers key insights for a successful kayak fishing experience. Topics covered include: Standing to fish Casting under brush and trees Fishing in the wind Bait, casting, fly, and night fishing tips, tactics, and techniques Landing fish in a kayak And much more! Spring finally offers further advice on kayak maintenance as well as making kayak fishing a friend and family event. Pick up a copy of The Ultimate Guide to Kayak Fishing for a complete introduction to this great, less-known fishing sport.

Any angler who has ever been out-fished by a beginner with a twig and some twine or questioned whether bass are smarter than he is will be in good company here. Hilarious Fishing Cartoons pokes fun at every kind of angling absurdity. Tiers struggling to tie microscopic flies, bass fishermen who catch more boots than bass, weekenders loaded down with every gizmo and piece of tackle in the shop, and fanatical, freezing ice fishermen doomed to drill and not grill are all represented. Troy's pen is deft and clever, and his one-liners are truly side-splitting. The next time your line gets so tangled you're ready to curse or quit fishing forever, remember these cartoons and you may just find yourself chuckling instead. No one understands the challenges and frustrations of the outdoorsman's life like John Troy, and no one makes the maddening business of hunting so riotously funny. Anyone still kicking himself over a missed shot, anyone wishing that his hunting dog had paid more attention in obedience school, or anyone who has ever been confounded by the antics of a pesky squirrel will enjoy this hugely delightful collection. In typical John Troy style, we are treated to one-panel lampoons of shooters who can't hit stuffed animals, bears that beat up hunters, and ducks that make their own decoys. They're funny because they're true. Hilarious Hunting Cartoons will delight both novice and experienced hunters and will make an excellent gift for yourself or a passionate hunter you know.

"Over the decades I've developed the impression that John Graves is the most honest writer in America, and also one of the best. Here is further evidence." --Jim Harrison, author of Legends of the Fall My Dogs and Guns pairs two memoirs--two halves of an outdoorsman's heart. First is "Blue and Some Other Dogs," the story about Graves's favorite Basque-Australian sheep dog, Blue. Second is "Guns of a Lifetime" which is a nostalgic chronicle of the guns Graves has owned, beginning with a "rusted and cylinderless" revolver. "So here are the stories," Graves writes. "They are not all 'nice' tales in contemporary terms. Political correctness, as presently defined, may be perpetrated here and there, though I hope no parts will seem like the maunderings of a Deep South redneck. But if they do, the hell with it. I am too old to fret about such matters." It is delightful, hardy prose from a treasure of a writer.

John Gierach, "the voice of the common angler" (The Wall Street Journal) and member of the Fly Fishing Hall of Fame, brings his sharp sense of humour and keen eye for observation to the fishing life and, for that matter, life in general. In A Fly Rod of Your Own, Gierach once again takes us into his world and scrutinizes the art of fly-fishing. He sings the praises of the skilled pilots who fly to remote fishing lodges in tricky locations and bad weather. He describes the all-but-impassable roads that fishermen always seem to encounter at the best fishing spots and why fishermen discuss four-wheel drive vehicles almost as passionately and frequently as they discuss fly rods and flies. And while he's on that subject, he explains why even the most conscientious fisherman always seems to accumulate more rods and flies than he could ever need. A Fly Rod of Your Own is an ode to all those who fish.

R363 R308 Discovery Miles 3 080 Save R55 (15%) Within 7 - 15 working days

If you're familiar with the world of hunting, you know how important dogs are in the field. Less known, however, is how vital these canines are to fishermen. For many anglers, packing your tackle and wading through the river without a trusted fishing dog is a recipe for disaster. In Fishing Dogs, Raymond Coppinger sheds light on the true value of fishing dogs of every size, shape, and color. Monsoon dogs, for example, lay in the bilge of boats until they are disturbed by the shipping of water. At that point, they rise up out of the bilge and unleash with tremendous power a series of epicentric rotational reciprocations, thus expelling inches of boat-threatening water. Coppinger also introduces readers to the Maine bowplunk dog, which received its name from its deeply ingrained habit of standing, proud and brave, on the bow of his master's boat as it moves through the choppy waters off Maine's coast. As a biologist, distinguished fisherman, and a known storyteller and fan of satire, Coppinger is more than qualified to discuss the various breeds of fishing dogs, in addition to topics as the evolution of dogs from wolves, the dangers of crossbreeding, and finding a fisherman's perfect fishing dog.

In the wake of tragic shootings in Newtown and Aurora, the anti-gun lobby has launched a campaign of lies, distortion, misrepresentation, and emotional manipulation that is breathtaking in its vitriol and its denial of basic facts. Their goal is to take away our Second Amendment rights and then disarm law-abiding Americans. Emily Miller tells her personal story of how being a single, female victim of a home invasion drove her to try to obtain a legally registered gun in Washington, D.C. The narrative--sometimes shocking, other times hilarious in its absurdity--gives the reader a real life understanding of how gun-control laws only make it more difficult for honest, law-abiding people to get guns, while violent crime continues to rise. Using facts and newly uncovered research, Miller exposes the schemes politicianson Capitol Hill, in the White House, and around the country are using to deny people their Second Amendment rights. She exposes the myths that gun grabbers and liberal media use to get new laws passed that infringe on our right to keep and bear arms. The gun rights debate isn't just about firearms. It's about protecting a fundamental right that is enshrined in the U.S. Constitution. It's about politicians who lie, manipulate, and outright break existing laws to get what they want. It's about President Obama wanting a bigger federal government to control you. Not just your guns--you. The fight for gun rights is the fight for freedom. Emily Miller says stand up and fight back now because your Second Amendment will only be the first to go.
