HC/DJ - fine/near fine. Foreword and photography by Lefty Kreh. Hardcover is clean, tight and unmarked, slight wear to spine ends.

Mastering the art of casting allows fly fishers to enjoy the sports and all it has to offer in all kinds of conditions.......; 4to 11" - 13" tall; What is the best way to cast? Author Ed Jaworowski explores the question and the subject in all its variety, complexity and subtlety.... Review: "....I took an introductory class on fly fishing with my father whom I had talked into learning the sport. Ed Jaworowski was the teacher. I can say first hand that he can cast a fly line an incredible distance -- and he can teach how. His book had just come out at the time, though I didn't acquire a copy until recently. After all these years, I can say that this is an excellent book on casting the fly rod in a way that maximizes the efficiency of the rod; I strongly recommend it for anyone interested in saltwater fly fishing in particular.

REMEMBERING THE GOLDEN JET A Celebration of Bobby Hull, MacInnis, Craig (editor)
12 MacInnis, Craig (editor) REMEMBERING THE GOLDEN JET A Celebration of Bobby Hull
Toronto Stoddart Publishing 2001 0773733116 / 9780773733114 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Colour & b/w photos. 120 pages. Excellent condition. Hardcover is as new, clean & unmarked. Jacket has light scuffing and slight edgewear. Review: "MacInnis Does it Again, The "Remembering..." series transcends normal biography by showcasing top quality journalist's recollections with statistics and insights into the player and their game. Remembering the Golden Jet is no different. From Bobby Hull's early days playing minor hockey, to his watershed defection from the NHL to play for Winnipeg, a move that would rock the hockey world and force the league to re-evaluate it's salary policy forever. For Blackhawks fans this book charts the progress of a player who was feared by goalies everywhere for his blistering slapshot. I have read every Bobby Hull book out there, and nothing comes close in it's insights, in it's recognition of Hull as a true Legend of the game, as this beautifully designed book. I can't recommend it highly enough. " (400? ) ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall

Protective sleeve has some scuffing/light scratches, however jacket underneath is in great condition, with light age tanning, and one or two tiny edge tears, front flap is price clipped. B/w illustrations. The greatest of all elephant books by the greatest of all elephant hunters, Karamojo Bell. ; Large 8vo 9" - 10" tall; From a Reviewer: "Classic Africana ....... This being the first of Bell's three books it was also my first title on the subject of elephant hunting. A testament to it's quality would be that even today, twenty years after the purchase and roughly eighty years after it was written, I often revisit these pages. The chapters on hunting rifle, shooting angles, adventures in Uganda and previously undiscovered country in western and central Africa are classic Africana. I am not alone in my fascination as Walter Bell continues to be among the most recognizable names in big game hunting today a full one hundred years after his first safari. His accomplishments with the rifle continue to be the standard by which all others are compared. Considering the number of sportsman who visit the continent, this is quite an accomplishment. Unlike Karamojo Safari and Bell of Africa, this book is strictly a collection of articles that were written for a local outdoor magazine in Scotland. In them, Bell describes the equipment, hunting techniques and shooting angles he used to become the most successful elephant hunter of the era. Even though these chapters address a vast range of topics Bell never drifts far from the pure hunting experience he strives to describe. He lived the life of an elephant hunter during that brief point in history when it was still a feasible profession to take up. The sensations associated with leading a heavily ivory laden safari out of the deepest jungles of Africa must have been truly magnificent. Fortunate we are that Bell took the time to put down his rifles and pick up his pen..." (730-0514)
