One of the most prolific fly-fishing writers of the twentieth century, Roderick L. Haig-Brown continues his “seasons” cycle with Fisherman’s Spring, a book that is as much about the deep philosophical aspects of fly fishing as it is about fly fishing itself. Readers will learn about the abundance of spring life in the streams of British Columbia while also being treated to Haig-Brown’s thoughtful musings and ideas about the rewards of fly fishing streams. Chapters readers will encounter include: Spring Defined Early Cutthroat Lakes Fly Types The Secret Life Fishing and the Common Man On Wading Fishermen and Forestry Fishing and Milkmaids The Forecast Recognizing Birds Putting Fish Back A Boy and a Fish Pole And many more Discover within these pages how fly fishing can enrich life and bring joy to every fisher. Both novices and experts alike will find a wealth of knowledge in Fisherman’s Spring. Originally published in 1964, Fisherman’s Fall brings a unique perspective to the world of fall fishing. In the preface, Robert L. Haig-Brown ruminates on the attempts to preserve the salmon and trout in the rivers of British Columbia. What we know could save them, yet what we do contradicts that knowledge. Gaining the knowledge in this book will help fishers learn the nature of the fish and might even inspire some to contribute to their preservation. Fisherman’s Fall gives fishers all the tools to become adept at fishing the rivers of British Columbia as well as firsthand knowledge of the fish of those rivers and their habits. In fabulous prose, readers will discover the unique fishing facts and techniques that accompany the fall season, differences between salmon in salt water and fresh water, the ocean years of salmon, the nature of estuaries, steelhead mysteries, and what makes an ideal stream. Besides gathering wise information, readers get to glimpse the inner thoughts of a fisherman in the chapters of Haig-Brown’s own thoughts while fishing. These wise words will speak to any fisher, and they will even speak to those who have never been on a river. Combining angling advice and inner reflection, this book is a must-have for fishermen and fisherwomen of all ages. Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range of books for fishermen. Our books for anglers include titles that focus on fly fishing, bait fishing, fly-casting, spin casting, deep sea fishing, and surf fishing.

"Notes on Fishing was Sergei Aksakov's first book, and Russia's first angling treatise. Notes, which has been compared to Izaak Walton's The Compleat Angler, presents a Russian gentleman's affectionate observations on the fishing tackle, angling techniques, and fish species he came to know during five decades of adventure-filled fishing in the vast Russian steppe and environs of Moscow." "Notes on Fishing, however, goes beyond more discourse on angling; it offers a rich multitude of viewpoints: philosophical, literary, linguistic, ethnographic, biological, and conservationist. Aksakov has imbued his notes with a deep fondness for the Russian land and an expertly conveyed atmosphere of personal and national nostalgia." --Book Jacket.

Roderick L. Haig-Brown is one of the world's most beloved fly-fishing writers: His classic books bring together exquisite prose, the full romance and beauty of fishing, and much solid angling advice. Here, for the first time in one volume, are his popular seasons books: Fisherman's Spring, Fisherman's Summer, Fisherman's Fall, and Fisherman's Winter. They chronicle a fisherman's year, from the brightening days of spring through a loving portrait of the author's home rivers in British Columbia during the summer, and on into the excitement of fall fishing and a winter away from his Campbell River to fish the great rivers of Argentina and Chile. As Verlyn Klinkenborg has said, "I think it forms some sort of watershed experience in every angler's reading when he comes upon Roderick Haig-Brown for the first time". And so it does. "The Seasons of a Fisherman" is an excellent place to start.

Karen Jean Matsko Hood’s writing is bold and honest. She communicates in a simple, direct way that is sure to captivate readers. If you are not yet familiar with her work, you are in for a treat with this first release in poetry series. The first book in the Frost of Spring Green Series can be read for pure enjoyment or as an insightful examination of our busy world. You may read one of her poems, enjoy its breezy wittiness, and then revisit it months later to discover something altogether fresh and new. This is what ultimately makes her poems lasting treasures: they reveal depth over time. Each reading promises something new, an additional layer of meaning that will enrich your daily life. Drawing from many of her poems already accepted for publication in international journals, Hood, as an emerging American poet and author, brings together unique verses in this, her first book of poetry. Hood’s poems remind us to value our link with nature and the environment in daily living. Her poetry voices outrage toward current social injustices, offers a voice for the downtrodden, and brings hope to the most hopeless of situations. She is optimistic in her quest for dignity for all life, and brings visual impact to her themes of nature. Frost of Spring Green will also be available in international bilingual editions. A collection of poetry ideal for reading time and again, this book makes a great gift for friends and family members.
