Reel Women, The World of Women Who Fish, Foggia, Lyla
3 Foggia, Lyla Reel Women, The World of Women Who Fish
Three Rivers Press 1995 0609800280 / 9780609800287 paperback used 294 pages 
Inscribed and flat-signed by the author on the title page.

From the cover: "For the 15 million women who fish each year, here is the first book ever to chronicle women's extraordinary legacy in the sport. Modern sportfishing began in 1496 with the definitive "Treatyse of Fysshynge wyth an Angle," attributed to English noblewoman and nun Dame Juliana Berners. During the five centuries since, women have made - and continue to make - fishing history.

Reel Women tells the captivating stories of the daring and the ingenious who have made a lasting impact on sportfishing. More than a hundred profiles include such figures are tiny Mrs. Keith Spalding, who landed a 426-pound swordfish in 1921, plus the living legends of flyfishing, big-game saltwater fishing, and bass fishing: from Helen Robinson, who developed a groundbreaking technique for teasing billfish into striking an artificial fly, to Sugar Ferris, founder of the first bass-fishing circuit for women.

Featuring a comprehensive women's angling resource directory and a bibliography of books by or for women anglers, Reel Women is a great catch for readers on the distaff side of the rod-and-reel world."

Uncle Perk's Jug: More Stories From the Lower Forty, Ford, Corey
4 Ford, Corey Uncle Perk's Jug: More Stories From the Lower Forty
Holt, Rinehart and Winston 1965 2nd printing hardcover with dust jacket used 150 pages illustrated by Walter Dower 
from the dust jacket: "That marvelous, mythical sportsmen's organization, The Lower Forty Shooting, Angling and Inside Straight Club, is back again with more merry misadventures for the millions who follow their activities so avidly in Field & Stream. Following the solid of You Can Always Tell a Fisherman and Minutes of the Lower Forty, Corey Ford has concocted another comical collection of tall tales about those improbable and irrepressible inhabitants of Hardscrabble.

Sportsmen on the active and inactive lists will welcome the return of Uncle Perk (who once sawed through the dining-room table to mount a world-record fish), Mr, MacNab (who frequently drives the membership around the countryside in a hearse), and Judge Parker (whose judicial robes often fail to conceal his hunting boots).

Warmed by more of that delectable home brew, Old Stump Blower, they are up to the same merry mischief that has tickled ribs from coast to coast. How the Judge interupts Deacon Godfrey in the midst of an amorous trist is revealed in a wonderfully comic piece call "The Flying Fishhouse," and in "The Still Hunt" readers will discover just why the Club was finally guaranteed hunting rights on Potgut Peavey's land. In the title story, Uncle Perk reminisces about some amazing events in the family history of Old Stump Blower that will vastly amuse Lower Foty admirers."

Condition: Pages are lightly age toned. Front and back boards have fading and dampstains. Dust jacket is in poor condition: has soil, tears, creases, and has pieces missing along the edges.

Tying Dry Flies: The Complete Dry Fly Instruction and Pattern Manual, Kaufmann, Randall
5 Kaufmann, Randall Tying Dry Flies: The Complete Dry Fly Instruction and Pattern Manual
Western Fisherman's Press 1991 0961705922 / 9780961705923 softcover used 204 pages, 8 inches by 11 inches tall 
from the cover: "Of the many fly fishing methods, dry fly fishing is the easiest. One does not need to be an expert to hook fish on the dry fly, especially if a good hatch is in progress and fish are not too discriminating. This is true, in part, because surface currents are visible and relatively easy to read, and anglers see fish attack their flies. This is not to say dry fly fishing is always easy; quite the contrary. If one is to consistently hook fish feeding at the water's surface, both imitation and presentation must be precise. Tying dry flies is much like fishing them. By their very nature of balancing and floating on the water's surface, dry flies must be exact.

Tying Dry Flies will show you, step by step, how to tie perfect dry flies with ease, speed and efficiency. It has 450 concise instructional photos, 200 beautiful illustrations and is exceptionally well organized. The 200 dry fly patterns presented are both contemporary and time-proven favorites that catch fish. The 27 demonstration patterns represent most adult insect food sources, including: mayflies, caddisflies, stoneflies, damselflies, midges, and terrestrials. Tying Dry Flies also contains a wealth of historical and angling information. It is easy to understand and fun to read."

Condition: Pages are crisp and clean. Half-title page is creased. Binding is tight. Cover has rubbing wear, creases, and wear to the edges and corners.
