ANGLING FOR WORDS is one of my most used books as I teachdyslexic students. You can see the evidence by my present copy that is literally falling apart. It offers useful words for challenging reading and simpler words words for spelling. ANGLING FOR WORDS is a must for every tutor, teacher and resource room. I just bought my second copy. It lists words according to consonant, vowel, digraph spelling, vowel combination spelling and unusual spellings. It also helps with syllable division, and suffixes.

5-0 out of 5 stars Many thanks
Being the author of this book, I should give it five stars. NOT?
I truely love the sport of sturgeon angling and wanted to share my knowledge. Most of all I had a need to share my hard earned knowledge of safety in boating and anchoring safely.
Retreiving the anchor being my main focus.

5-0 out of 5 stars A good book for sturgeon fishermen
I bought this book for my husband who is an avid sturgeon fisherman, not expecting there to be any new information in it that he didn't know about. He loved it! He said that there are many things in the book that have since helped him to catch a big one. The part he liked most was the military explanation of anchoring and the tides description. Go buy this one if you want to bring home a sturgeon.

Got the book, read it! Surely not worth its price! I own a lot of fish and fishing books so I would have to say, this book isnt worth its cost! Most of the information wasn't as detail and I found better information from just searching websites on the net. ... Read more

Product Description
Upriver and Downstream gathers seventy columns about fishing—from freshwater to saltwater, from small ponds to the Great Lakes, from the Pacific Northwest to post-Soviet Russia—written for the “Outdoors” column of the New York Times.

Contributors include such celebrated names as Nick Lyons, Thomas McGuane, Nelson Bryant, Peter Kaminsky, Ernest Schweibert, and Robert H. Boyle. Short, evocative, informative, and entertaining, here are pieces about fly-fishing for wild brook trout, bait-fishing for striped bass, casting into tailwaters, or angling in midwinter. The settings range from Hudson River piers to the Florida Everglades, from Iceland to the Amazon, and the fish include everything from the common sunfish to the esoteric paddlefish. These engaging essays remind us of what fishing is all about: companionship and solitude, challenge and relaxation, nature and technology, from coast-to-coast to around the globe.

Rich with the particulars of water, light, and air, as well as a keen awareness of, as Verlyn Klinkenborg puts it in his introduction, “what is happening out there—in the deep, in the shallows, at the end of the line,” these reflections and recollections beautifully capture the natural world and one of life’s most challenging, perennial pursuits.

5-0 out of 5 stars I Am Carrying J.R. Hartley's Child
I happily awarded this book 5 stars for one reason and one reason only.

A few years ago one of the most popular television commercials broadcast in the UK showed an old gentleman scouring his local bookshops in search of an out-of-print book: Fly Fishing by JR Hartley. After a few fruitless days involving countless visits to rundown second hand bookshops, his daughter says "No luck Dad? Never mind. What about trying Yellow Pages?"

After a few hours spent flicking through the weighty doorstop, sure enough he finds a shop he hasn't tried. He rings up its number and then he smiles as his request is successful. When asked for his name he replies JR Hartley. The voiceover booms soothingly "Good old Yellow Pages".

The ad was so successful that it spawned a spin-off book of the same Fly Fishing title by a fictional character called JR Hartley.

Well.There you have it, folks.The man, the memories--even the book don't really exist.5 stars for sure. ... Read more

Trout see a world invisible to man -- the world of ultraviolet light. You can now meet them in that world. Through abundant photographs and clear text the author illuminates the remarkable distinctions between the vision of man and the broader vision of trout, revealing for the first time flies, fly tying materials, and insects in both visible light and reflected ultraviolet light. In this groundbreaking work, the author presents new scientific discoveries in the understanding of trout vision and illustrates how these discoveries benefit the discerning scientific angler. Complementing the text and photos are the drawings and cartoons of Eric Reaves - longtime cartoonist for Jim Davis of the "Garfield" comic strip. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars An essential element for any fisherman's reference library
Reed has gone where few dare to tread. The world of trout perception and vision has always been a major question mark compared to the things we toss at them. With our bipolar vision and the limitations of visible light, most anglers have wondered what a trout sees in brightly colored feather dander.

It's a heady topic, and Reed has managed to add some lightness and angling reality with scientific principles - making a book that is enlightening without out being dull and lifeless (as most scientific tomes are ...)

Its interpretation of UV and vision has been stripped of the polysyllabic mathematics and is geared towards a non-scientific audience. It's reminiscent of those old high school science texts whose salient points were outlined in the margins.

Packed with important fishing information as well as theory. Segments detailing the enhanced resolution that UV can add to a textured surface, the idea of the "composite mayfly" - every posture of every bug ever seen, and how the trout may trigger the all important "maybe" - and try the taste test.

The photographs of common angling objects (flies, vests, fly tying materials) and the discussion of colors qualities in the UV spectrum make this a reference book for a fly tyer - something to keep close so it can be used often.

A worthy tome for the non-fly tying angler, as there is much about the fish that we've always wondered, yet couldn't find a translator to tell us what the science meant.

Great book.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Trout Enthusiast Must Read!
If you've ever fished for them you know, trout are an amazing fish. If you read this book, you will know Reed Curry is an amazing writer who, with a multitude of evidence and practical knowledge, will tell you how trout are more amazing than we've always thought. You will feel smarter after reading this, but you probably still won't be as smart as the trout you are casting to. Good writing, nice photos, excellent art, and great humor all inside this book.

Product Description
In The Fish’s Eye: Essays About Angling and the Outdoors, Ian Frazier explores his lifelong passion for fishing, fish, and the aquatic world. He sees the angler’s environment all around him—in New York’s Grand Central Station, in the cement-lined pond of a city park, in a shimmering bonefish flat in the Florida Keys, in the trout streams of the Rocky Mountains. He marvels at the fishing in the turbid Ohio River by downtown Cincinnati, where a good bait for catfish is half a White Castle french fry. The incidentals of the angling experience, the who and the where of it, interest him as much as what he catches and how. The essays contain sharply focused observations of the American outdoors, a place filled with human alterations and detritus that somehow remain defiantly unruined. Frazier’s simple love of the sport lifts him to a straight-ahead angling description that’s among the best contemporary writing on the subject. The Fish’s Eye brings together twenty years of heartfelt, funny, and vivid essays on a timeless pursuit where so many mysteries, both human and natural, coincide.

5-0 out of 5 stars Comments on "The Fish's Eye"
Until recently, I didn't know that Frazier could write "fish." In fact, he does it with great wit and humor. What a surprising range of experiences, and not all strictly fishing: there's getting to the right water, shopping for gear, listening to advice, even tasting the bait. I enjoyed every essay, though would give a special nod to Frazier's journal of discovery related to the spring melt along Montana's Pattee Creek.And, as a character study, you'll rarely find anyone more memorable and interesting than Jim D. in "An Angler at Heart."

5-0 out of 5 stars Tracker-Outdoors.com Review of The Fish's Eye
Author Ian Frazier's new book, "The Fish's Eye" is a wonderfully crafted collection of 17short essays about fishing and the great outdoors.The essays bring to life all of the mysteries both human and natural thatmost anglers take for granted. Ian's writing techniques paint vivid pictures of the angler's surrounding whether its a bait shop, a bass lake or the Hudson River."The Fish's Eye" captures the spirit of the angling life experience from every angle. This book is a "must read" for every angler and outdoorsman.

4-0 out of 5 stars Spotty as a trout but just as tasty
I am a big fan of Ian Frazier's writing, so I snapped this up even though I am not an angler.The material is uneven, "spotty": some good, some indifferent.It contains essays previously published in magazines like the New Yorker and Outside magazine.In fact, if you've read either of those often you will be disappointed to find relatively few new material.

If not however, the anglers will like some pieces, the Ian Frazier fans will like others but tire of the fish stories.The one that is most successful on both counts, in my opinion, is the one about the fellow who ran an angler's shop near Grand Central Station.It is more a personality piece than a fishing piece but combines both of Frazier's great abilities (writing that is funny and generous in spirit, and...of course...fishing).

4-0 out of 5 stars good stuff
I'm not sure that anyone's ever adequately explained the fact that fishing, baseball, boxing, golf, and horse racing have produced nearly every page of worthwhile sports writing.Baseball has more truly great writing
than the others--from songs and poems, like Take Me Out to the Ballgame and Casey at the Bat; to daily journalism, like Red Smith's Miracle at Coogan's Bluff; to essays, like John Updike's Hub Fans Bid Kid Adieu;
to classic novels like Bang the Drum Slowly; to even great B-movies, like It Happens Every Spring--but fishing literature offers perhaps the most consistently high quality of writing (I don't think it has many songs,
poems, or movies and only a handful of worthwhile novels).

The great Red Smith of course excelled in writing about all of these sports and his fishing essays are marvelous.Robert Traver--perhaps best remembered now for Anatomy of a Murder, with its fishing-mad
attorney--wrote a number of great essays, collected in Trout Magic and Trout Madness.Nowadays, John Gierach seems incapable of putting pen to paper without producing an amusing fishing tale.All in all,
there's an embarrassment of riches to choose from.It seems not too much to say that you can grab nearly any collection of fishing essays and find writing of a high standard.In fact, it may be looking a gift horse in the
mouth, but there's so much good writing about fishing that it takes on a certain sameness--all those magnificent trout rising to the mayfly hatches in Montana and Idaho start to blend together at some point.So,
though it seem perverse, it takes more than "just" great writing to get at least this casual fan to grab a new fishing book.An author'd better have a well-barbed hook, to haul us in.

Ian Frazier's writing reputation precedes him--author of such well regarded books as On the Rez and Great Plains--but what's most appealing about this collection of his essays, mostly from The New Yorker and
Outside, is that many of them, especially the early ones, concern the fishing in and around Manhattan.Mr. Frazier takes this unlikely environs and lets us see that its just as fish-happy as any stretch of the Big
Blackfoot River.There are also some really lovely reminiscences of boyhood, including a charming essay about his Dad, who would become so disturbed by the notion of his son catching and hurting a fish that today it
is those occasions when he gets skunked that remind Mr. Frazier most clearly of his father.For my tastes the book loses a little steam when Mr. Frazier moves his family out West.Suddenly we're back in the
familiar--to me overfamiliar--waters of Montana.But such quibbles are more than forgiven because of a few quite humorous essays that are mixed in. One on eating bugs is quite good and one, called Bad Advice,
has an opening scene that's as funny as anything I've ever read anywhere.I hope I'll be forgiven for quoting at length :

Some years ago, on a camping trip in the pine woods of northern Michigan, my friend Don brought along a copy of an outdoor cookbook
that appeared on the best-seller lists at the time. This book contained many ingenious and easy-sounding recipes; one that Don especially
wanted to try was called "Breakfast in a Paper Bag." According to this recipe, you could take a small paper lunch sack, put strips of bacon
in the bottom, break an egg into the sack on top of the bacon, fold down the top of the sack, push a stick through the fold, hold the sack
over hot coals, and cook the bacon and egg in the sack in about ten minutes.

I watched as Don followed the directions exactly. Both he and I remarked that we would naturally have thought the sack would burn;
the recipe, however, declared, "grease will coat the bottom of the bag as it cooks." Somehow we both took this to mean that the grease,
counterintuitively, actually made the bag less likely to burn. Marveling at the "who would have guessed" magic of it, we picked a good spot
in the hot coals of our campfire, and Don held the sack above them. We watched. In a second and a half, the bag burst into leaping flames.
Don was yelling for help, waving the bag around trying to extinguish it, scattering egg yolk and smoldering strips of bacon and flaming paper
into the combustible pines while people at adjoining campfires stared in horror and wondered what they should do.

That's just good stuff and, by itself, makes the book worth reading.


4-0 out of 5 stars Fish tales....and other cornucopia
My father has been passionate about fishing for as long as I can remember. I never have been. I didn't have the patience and lets face it, if you're not catching fish, then you're standing there holding a stick dangling string into a monumental body of water. As I've gotten older (and wiser?), I try to fish with my father whenever possible and, preconceived notions aside, I'm really enjoying myself. Consequently, when I ran across Ian Frazier's new offering, THE FISH'S EYE, I immediately purchased a copy for both my father and myself (reading is a passion we share). I thought I might glean some insight into an experienced fisherman's psyche as I read this set of 17 essays and thus, a snapshot of my father's fishing experiences. The essays, written by Mr. Frazier over the last 20+ years and presented in chronological order, present the reader with Frazier's experiences in the fishing life....and his experiences have been wide and varied.

As an incredible admission, this reader had no clue that there were people who actually fished in New York City proper (it just didn't seem to fit) but Frazier sets this misnomer to rest in his first essay, "Anglers." Here, he describes his experiences of observing and listening to a few of those throwing their lines into one of six ponds in the City's park system near Harlem Meer.

One of the better and more detailed essays is "An Angler at Heart." This essay details the story of Jim Deren, the owner of Anglers Roost, in none other than New York City! Frazier tells of his many conversations with Deren as he frequents The Roost. This 47-page essay is actually several essays rolled into one, all featuring Deren and his experiences in the fishing life. At one point in the essay, Frazier spends nearly two full pages informing us of the different types of lures one would be confronted with when visiting Angler's Roost. In this reader's opinion, if there is one essay epitomizing the spirit of this book, it would be this particular one.

"Guiding Guys" is a hilarious spoof on fishing guide services. Frazier describes the "guarantees" one receives in the propaganda distributed by many of these services. In this essay, Frazier writes from the point of view of a guide making just such guarantees of outings ranging from great fishing to extremely great fishing. And, he provides the reader with several different guides to choose from. There's Craig, 6'7" and 275 lbs. who grunts and answers in one-word sentences; Potter, who will never stop nagging you the entire outing as to how badly you're doing; and, last but not least, former President Jimmy Carter. Now, you have to pay a little extra for Mr. Carter but its well worth it as the former President will regale you with tales of his Presidency as you sit around the campfire.

Perhaps the most poignant essay for me was "Fishing Without Dad." This essay is specifically dedicated to Frazier's memory of his father, who never liked to fish and moreover, thought it was cruel. This particular piece details Frazier's penchant for fishing while growing up but without the fatherly advice and companionship he seemed to yearn for. This is probably the most touching piece in the book.

The only downside to this collection of essays were those pieces that had absolutely nothing to do with fishing. This fit more into the life stories portion of the book. "In The Brain" has almost nothing to do with fishing but regales how Frazier tormented his brother (as brothers will do) on family vacations. "It's Hard To Eat Just One" describes Frazier's experiences with eating his bait, specifically bugs. In my opinion, these pieces (and a couple others) should have been modified or removed as they had very little if anything to do with fishing.

Frazier's penchant for spinning a story is outstanding. That said, anyone who loves fishing will enjoy THE FISH'S EYE; anyone who isn't a fisherman at heart will most likely find these tales slow and possibly boring. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book!
Really an excellent book, well written, fine photos, five stars. Essentially a collection of 50 articles, each about catching different species on different rivers and lakes in Arkansas, but so well written you don't need to live in Arkansas to enjoy it. Author describes some unusual fish and how to catch them, e.g., bowfin, padlefish, skipjack, gars, et al.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Story Of An Amazing Lady Fisher

This engaging, illustrated memoir tells the story of the author's aunt, Katherine deb. Parsons, and the Atlantic salmon camp she and her relatives built from scratch along the banks of the Upsalquitch River in Nova Scotia. This story dispels the myth that women "don't get" the sport and art of fly fishing. The author, a medical doctor, collected several articles he had written for a fishing club newsletter, and these presented together form a fine narrative about camp life, the ecological issues facing the Atlantic salmon, the excitment of fishing on the fly, and the story of one amazingly independent and pioneering lady fisher.

5-0 out of 5 stars A wonderful fishing memoir
Salmon Camp: The Boland Brook Story is the fascinating true story of a small family fishing camp, never operated as a club or commercial venture. In the 1930s, a young woman named Katharine Parsons acquired a stretch of land with a mile and a quarter of Atlantic salmon river running through it, constructed Boland Brook Camp, an oversaw it for years until her nephew inherited it after her passing in 1993. Her nephew recounts a detailed and flavorful history of the camp, the people who fished there, the experience of angling on the Upsalquitch River, and more, illustrated with black-and-white and color photographs. A wonderful fishing memoir sure to appeal to enthusiasts of the sport.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Unique Salmon Fishing History
This is a very special and personal history of a unique SalmonFishing Camp covering 65 years of kinship with a determined, courageous, and exceptional woman who, against all odds, built a remarkable Canadian summer retreat which she generously shared with family and close friends. This fascinating book reveals much about life at the isolated camp and fishing on the beautifil Upsalquitch River. It paints a vivid picture of comittment and comaraderie between Miss Parsons, her guests. and the devoted staff in a most affectionate and conversational manner. I recommend this book to anyone who responds to the magic
of Salmon Fishing. Joan Gilbert ... Read more
