Classic Fishing Stories: Twenty Timeless Angling Tales

Nick Lyons (Editor)

Classic writing remains "classic" only insofar as people want to read it. Angling historians may study the evolution of tackle or tying techniques, or perhaps the methods of fishing used hundreds of years ago, but the wonderful old stories about fishing are read and reread only because they give pleasure today; because they give us insights into why we fish and the nature of our passion; and because they are well written. This book offers twenty of the best classic fishing stories that have stood the severe, inescapable test of time. John Buchan, Lewis Carroll, Rudyard Kipling, Washington Irving, Roland Pertwee, Andrew Lang, Henry Van Dyke, R. D. Blackmore, Anton Chekhov, John Taintor Foote, G. E. M. Skues, and all the others in this fine collection have given pleasure for generations . . . and will give great pleasure to modern anglers, too.

The Greatest Fishing Stories Ever Told: Twenty-Eight Unforgettable Fishing Tales

Lamar Underwood (Editor)

"Every once in a while, a book publisher comes up with a great concept for a series of books that deserve more than superficial recognition. Such a series is The Greatest (fill in the blank) Stories Ever Told, anthologies that should win places on many bedside tables. On the long winter nights that lie ahead, such stories make great reading."
--The Lexington County Chronicle

The Greatest Fishing Stories Ever Told is sure to ignite recollections of your own angling experiences as well as send your imagination adrift. In this compilation of tales you will read about two kinds of places, the ones you have been to before and love to remember, and the places you have only dreamed of going, and would love to visit. Whether you prefer to fish rivers, estuaries, or beaches, this book will take you to all kinds of water, where you'll experience catching every kind of fish.

Read on as some of the sport's most talented writers recount their personal memories of catching bass, trout, bluefish marlin, tuna, and more. You'll read about all kinds of fish, and all kinds of fishermen in these pages. Explore the Pacific with Zane Grey, as he fights a 1,000-pound blue marlin, or listen as A. J. McClane explains just what it really means to be an angler. Take a step back in time when you read Ernie Schwiebert's tale of fishing a remote lake in Michigan, when he was still only a young boy. Each of these stories, selected because of its intrinsic literary worth, reinforces the unique personal connection that fishing creates between man and nature.

The Politically Incorrect Guide to Hunting (Politically Incorrect Guides)

Frank Miniter (Author)

Nothing is more hated--and more misunderstood--by the trendy Left than hunting. But now intrepid hunter and pro-hunting activist Frank Miniter sets the record straight. In The Politically Incorrect Guide(tm) to Hunting, he details the concrete benefits that hunting provides to all of us--even how it helps the environment. Speaking with wildlife biologists, hunters, farmers, anti-hunters, and victims of animal attacks, Miniter explains how banning hunting negatively affects wildlife populations and conservation. Miniter's fearless, politically incorrect take on hunting lays out the facts that liberal enviro-nuts don't want you to know, including:

*How a well-intentioned policy of "live and let live" with Florida alligators resulted in human deaths
*Why you're more likely to be attacked by a bear in an area where hunting is forbidden, such as a national park
*Why non-lethal alternatives to hunting don't work to control animal populations
*Why even vegetarians depend on hunting for their dinner (especially those who demand organic or locally grown food)
*How hunters are wildlife's best defenders--far more effective than big-budget "green" groups
*How deer cause more human deaths each year than sharks, cougars, bears, and alligators combined
*Why hunting is statistically safer for kids than football, bicycling, and tennis

If you love hunting, you need to arm yourself with The Politically Incorrect Guide(tm) to Hunting, so that the next time you encounter an anti-hunter, you'll be equipped to shoot down politically correct myths and defend this great American sport against all attacks.

A Native Son's Story of Fishing, Hunting and Duck Decoys in the Lowcountry

Jerry Wayne Caines (Author)

In Winyah Bay, near Georgetown, South Carolina, the Caines family is known for three things: fishing, hunting and hell-raising. Jerry Caines and his younger brother Roy-the Caines boys-grew up following the untamed example of their grandfather, Hucks Caines, and great-uncles-collectively known as the Caines brothers-who were renowned hunting guides at Hobcaw Barony. In this book, follow two generations of hell-raising Caineses as they achieve lasting fame carving duck decoys (now collectable and worth thousands), guiding hunters in Hobcaw Barony, fishing for shad and telling tall tales of their misadventures-often staring smack down the barrel of a rifle, and getting away with it just the same. From Hucks, Sawney, Ball, Bob and Pluty to Jerry and Roy, hunting and fishing in South Carolina will never be the same.

The Best of Zane Grey Outdoorsman: Hunting and Fishing Tales

Zane Grey (Author), George Rieger (Editor)
Best of Zane Grey, Outdoorsman is a Stackpole Books publication.

From an Amazon customer review:
“For pure reading pleasure of an outdoors nature, noone can beat the wit, wisdom, and writing style of Zane Grey. I purchased this book recently and read the entire length of it in one sitting. Believe me, you won't be able to put this one down! This is a compilation of some of Grey's best work on hunting, fishing, and camping. Although most of the work is from the early 1900s, it is the compelling story telling talent of Grey that makes this a compelling read even for the youth of today. Also included is a marvelous picture section with some of Grey's world record fish and game harvests. All in all a great read!”

Poacher Wars: A Pennsylvania Game Warden's Journal

William Wasserman (Author)

Join Officer Wasserman as he shares in a most captivating style, some of his most exciting and harrowing experiences as a Pennsylvania Wildlife Conservation Officer. In more than 30 years he has encountered it all, from the most hardened criminals to the most unbelievable encounters with wildlife.

Wasserman's book is a collection of 16 true stories about encounters with dangerous and unpredictable poachers and criminals. For the average reader of game warden literature it is a great addition to his library, and for the outdoor sportsman it is a great book to provide a behind the scenes view of the seedier side of our profession. This book is not an autobiography of the author, but instead, is an unpretentious, straight forward accounting of some events in his career that left him shaking his head, or counting his blessings. I found this book to be very well written, highly entertaining, and thought provoking. I highly recommend it.
