Many anglers who wish to get started in fly fishing are intimidated. With so many choices of expensive rods, reels, lines, leaders and flies, it's difficult to know where to begin. And it doesn't help that a few of the so-called "experts" in the field write articles implying the sport is difficult to master. The truth is, to be a successful fly angler you don't need to know everything about everything. That's what sets this book apart from the many other fly fishing books available today. In these pages, veteran fly-fishing instructor Chris Hansen concentrates on teaching you the basics. For example, if you aren't sure what level fly angler you are, check out Hansen's "10 Ways to Tell If You're a Beginner." Want to learn how to fly cast? Read "12 Tips to Making the Perfect Cast." And if you think you must carry everything but the kitchen sink with you every time you wade into a stream, look at Hansen's "8 Accessories for Every Trip." Hansen understands the best reason to try fly fishing is that in many situations you can catch more fish with flies than you can with spinning or baitcasting lures. In this book's final chapter, "Catching Fish on Flies," he details these situations for panfish, trout, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, and even northern pike. In addition, he shows you his "Top 10 Fly Patterns" for each species and the best retrieves for getting finicky fish to strike.

Hemingways berühmtester Roman in neuer Übersetzung Hemingways frühester Roman aus dem Jahre 1926 liegt hier in neuer Übersetzung vor. Er ist der «Verlorenen Generation» des Ersten Weltkriegs gewidmet. Die Figuren leben, körperlich und seelisch gezeichnet, aber mit fatalistischer Sorglosigkeit als Außenseiter des bürgerlichen Lebens unter der heißen Sonne Frankreichs und Spaniens, zwischen Stierkampf und durchzechten Nächten. Hemingway selbst beschrieb seinen Roman als «eine verdammt traurige Geschichte, in der aufgezeigt wird, wie Menschen zugrunde gehen». So etwa Lady Brett Ashley, die Männer in Serie unglücklich macht: ihren Vertrauten, den Ich-Erzähler Jack Barnes, einen typischen Hemingway-Helden, beherrscht und zurückhaltend; den aus einer wohlhabenden Familie stammenden Amateurboxer Robert Cohn, der, von Brett mal nah, mal fern gehalten, zwischen Unsicherheit und Aggression schwankt; und schließlich Pedro Romero, den Stierkämpfer, stolz, ausdauernd, mutig und voller Würde, aber Lady Ashley gegenüber machtlos. «Fiesta» ist ein großes Epochenporträt, ein Generationenroman mit kraftvollen Zeichnungen von Menschen, Land und Leuten. Das Buch begründete Hemingways Weltruhm. «Eine fesselnde, wunderschön absurde, herzzerreißende Erzählung.» (The New York Times)
