Memories of Magical Waters
"Memories of Magical Waters contains a richness of trout fishing lore
related to Deval's experiences on hundreds of streams, rivers and
lakes in Ontario and Quebec. His extensive outdoor reminiscences
introduce us to the fabled waters that, for him, have produced
special catches and unparalleled outdoor adventures."
Brookies, Browns & Bows
"You don’t know
how lucky you are, on a couple of counts. You’re lucky to have the Old
Guy’s special knowledge bundled up and glued between cardboard, so
that you might ever refer to it. You can dog-ear the really good
parts. I suggest you immediately turn to page sixty-five and turn down
the corner there, where it tells you how to make Despairs. You’re
going to be making a lot of them, I’ll bet, because it is the Old
Guy’s favorite fly, and therefore likely the most effective trout fly
in the world."
"Looking towards his position on the river bank,
we were stunned to see our canoe drifting away sixty or seventy feet
in front of the apparently, at least to the rest of the crew, not
overly concerned announcer of that startling observation. The
already partially loaded canoe, which had obviously been tied
carelessly, if at all, to the bushes on shore, was rapidly
approaching the point of no return, dangerously close to the rapids
below the great falls to the right of our camp."
ABOUT is a definitive look at fishing tackle development and
selection, along with a study of casting techniques for all anglers
neophyte to expert, fly caster to spin fisherman. It was written
with the principle objective of assembling a reference work that
would enable the angler to maximize his/her skills, as well as
pleasures, in the sport of fresh water fishing".
FREE Food'n Fun! (not just
another cook book)
little book will introduce you to a host of tempting, mouth-watering
freebies - gourmet food and tidbits largely ignored by everybody,
but welcomed, indeed treasured, by a growing segment of
adventuresome outdoorsmen. Seldom returning empty-handed myself
from any trip afield, I find it difficult to understand why this
delectable hodgepodge of gourmet viands remains virtually untapped.
There is almost always some succulent 'wild' food nearby that's
merely waiting to be harvested, then converted into gourmet fare."
"From home-made Apple
Jelly to Smoked Salmon, here is the guide to preparing
mouth-watering delicacies from all that you catch, collect and hunt.
You must try Gord's
TORREMOLINOS TROUT! "
The Adventures of SUNNY
(The Seeing Eye
An excerpt from this
delightful Children's Book.
the Seeing Eye Sunfish had certainly earned his title. First, he had
saved Wally Walleye from being trapped in the jumble of tires before
leading him back to his regular place in the weed-bed. Then he had
somehow managed to get a nice little meal back to his hungry friend.
By taking him the worm he stole off Uncle Bob’s hook, he was also
able to prevent his friend’s becoming hooked on Jason’s big
artificial lure. At least, he hoped Wally was a friend."
