Its selections celebrate fishing for bass, catfish, trout, striped bass, crappie, tarpon, muskie, Atlantic salmon, bonefish, pike, and many other species. If it swims and can be landed with a rod, line, and hook, it's featured here--as are locations all over the world, from the greatest rivers of Montana to Southern lakes to shores of all American coasts to far-off locations around the world. Anglers will find their favorites here, writers who have made a living writing on the joys of fishing and renowned names of literature who have shared their tales and wisdom: James Henshall, Mark Sosin, Rudyard Kipling, G.E.M. Skues, Roland Pertwee, Henry Van Dyke, Dave Barry, Bill Barich, Ted Leeson, John Maclean, James Prosek, Lefty Kreh, John McPhee, Zane Grey, Joan Wulff, Howell Raines, and so many more. There are also wonderful little-known pieces by virtually unknown authors, and special discoveries--like the famous painter of birds, John James Audubon, writing about cat-fishing in the Ohio River
Spring Creek by Nick Lyons( )

6 editions published between 1992 and 2013 in English and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Spring Creek is everything a fishing book should be," says Craig Nova. "It has the ability to convey the magic that always exists between somebody who loves fishing and a particular piece of water that endlessly lives up to its end of the bargain." It has been called Lyons's masterpiece. The river is one of those rare places where the trout are as long as your arm but also exceedingly difficult to catch. Lyons explores its secrets and confronts its greatest challenges. At first he catches little. Then slowly, he acquires the various and special skills and disciplines necessary to take the large wary brown trout of this extraordinary river."--Publisher description

Downstream : reflections on brook trout, fly fishing, and the waters of Appalachia by David O'Hara( )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fly fishing narratives and fragments of memoir provide the narrative arc for exploring relationships between humans and rivers, and the ways in which our attitudes and philosophies impact our practices and the waters we depend on for life. The authors guide their readers on a journey from Maine's Androscoggin watershed -- once one of the ten filthiest rivers in the United States and now home again to some of the best wild brook trout fishing in the United States -- southward through Kentucky into Tennessee and North Carolina, where a native southern strain of brook trout struggles to survive. Like the rivers themselves, the chapters alternate between flowing narratives and the stiller waters that settle out above dams. While each stone in this mosaic is worth a close look in its own right, seen from a distance the book offers a broader picture of the cold mountain waters of Appalachia and their famous native fish: the brook trout"--Cover page 4

On average, 1 in 10 products on your supermarket shelf contains palm oil; how is it labeled, how is it treated and is it harmful to your body? Secondly, what is happening to the world's most bio-diverse tropical rainforests in South East Asia and thirdly, is this product necessary?In this documentary viewers explore the importance of palm oil, its opponents as well as the people and the countries that depend on its very existence. They are presented with arguments that examine whether palm oil is in fact harmful to the environment and debate the significance of biodiesel.
