Book Summary: On angling as a woman in the first half of the twentieth century. Like fast moving currents, the fishing tales in The Fly Fisher and the River move us through a selection of Max Atherton’s experiences both within rivers’ waters as well as at their outer edges. They remind us that alongside the (then-) radical environmentalist-explorer part of her, there was a playful joie de vivre, someone who appreciated the company of good-looking, intelligent outdoorsmen. Even before her husband’s death, Max enjoyed the attention she got as a fisherwoman. While she cherished a few female friendships, Max held the opinion that women did not generally engage their minds as much as they could and tended to settle for less in their lives than she was willing to. The men she liked—educated, with leisure time to fish—had more freedom and could have adventures and talk about ideas, politics, and the intricacies of fly fishing. This refined form of angling provided an escape from the mundane, and Max enjoyed the adrenaline rush of fishing and camping in the great outdoors as much as the meditative quiet time in nature. Her expertise provided the entrée she needed to thrive in a man’s world—a fact reflected in her writing about the joys of casting her lines into one river after another.

Book Summary: From the author of A Widow for One Year, A Prayer for Owen Meany and other acclaimed novels, comes a story of a father and a son - fugitives in 20th-century North America. In 1954, in the cookhouse of a logging and sawmill settlement in northern New Hampshire, a twelve-year-old boy mistakes the local constable's girlfriend for a bear. Both the twelve-year-old and his father become fugitives, pursued by the constable. Their lone protector is a fiercely libertarian logger, once a river driver, who befriends them. In a story spanning five decades, Last Night in Twisted River - John Irving's twelfth novel - depicts the recent half-century in the United States as a world "where lethal hatreds were generally permitted to run their course." From the novel's taut opening sentence - "The young Canadian, who could not have been more than fifteen, had hesitated too long." - to its elegiac final chapter, what distinguishes Last Night in Twisted River is the author's unmistakable voice, the inimitable voice of an accomplished storyteller.

Book Summary: Notorious for the delight he took in tweaking the sexual taboos of the Victorian age-as well as the delight he took in the resulting shock of his bashful peers-British adventurer, linguist, and author CAPTAIN SIR RICHARD FRANCIS BURTON (1821-1890) is perhaps best remembered for his unexpurgated translation of the Eastern classic The One Thousand and One Nights, more famously known today as The Arabian Nights. Originating in Persian, Indian, and Arabic sources as far back as the ninth century AD, this collection of bawdy tales-which Burton was the first to bring to English readers in uncensored form-has exerted incalculable influence on modern literature. It represents one of the earliest examples of a framing story, as young Shahrazad, under threat of execution by the King, postpones her death by regaling him with these wildly entertaining stories over the course of 1,001 nights. The stories themselves feature early instances of sexual humor, satire and parody, murder mystery, horror, and even science fiction. Burton's annotated 16-volume collection, as infamous as it is important, was first published between 1885 and 1888, and remains an entertainingly naughty read. Volume VIII includes: [ "King Mohammed Bin Sabaik and the Merchant Hasan" [ "Hassan of Bassorah" [ "Khalifah the Fisherman of Baghdad" [ "Masrur and Zayn Al-Mawasif" [ "Ali Nur Al-Din and Miriam the Girdle-Girl" [ and others.

Introduction The headwaters of the Bitterroot River originate from two-major Head Waters. The East Fork of the Bitterroot River originates from the Sapphire Mountains and Anaconda Pintler Wilderness Areas. The West Fork of the Bitterroot River originates from the Bitterroot Mountains and the Selway – Bitterroot Wilderness Areas. The West Fork of the Bitterroot River was dammed in the early 1900’s creating Painted Rocks Reservoir. Below Painted Rocks Reservoir lies the tail-water fishery section of the West Fork of the Bitterroot River, which flows downstream to its confluence with the East Fork of the Bitterroot River north of the town of Conner, Montana. The East Fork of the Bitterroot River is still a free flowing stream. The Wild Fires of “2000” burned much of the timberland in the headwaters of both drainages. During spring run-off and summer thunderstorms the East Fork of the Bitterroot River turns turbid from the ash that is washed into the river from the tributaries flowing into the river. The West Fork of the Bitterroot River however remains clear, Painted Rocks Reservoir allows the headwater run-off to settle out within the reservoir before entering the West Fork of the Bitterroot River below the dam. The East Fork of the Bitterroot River confluence with the West Fork of the Bitterroot River forms the mainsteam of the Bitterroot River, which flows northerly to its confluence with the Clarkfork River outside the city of Missoula, Montana. The Bitterroot River trout fishery has experienced depravation from mankind since the early 1900’s when Marcus Daly “The Copper King” and others commissioned the building of an extensive network of irrigation canals throughout the Bitterroot Valley. The largest canal is the Big Ditch, which runs northerly over seventy-five miles in length traversing the eastside of the Bitterroot River Valley. They built large diversion dams across the Bitterroot River and diverted most of the tributaries in the Bitterroot Valley. These diversion dams dewater the Bitterroot River severely during the summer months. Most of the Bitterroot Tributaries become dry during critical spawning periods for Rainbow Trout, Westslope Cutthroat Trout, Brown Trout and Bull Trout. With these depravation problems on the Bitterroot River there are still some sections of the Bitterroot River that offer good fishing for Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout and Westslope Cutthroat Trout and to a lesser degree Bull Trout. The Bitterroot River at time offers some excellent dry fly fishing. In March and April there are Stone Flies: Skwala Stone Flies (Skwala parallela) and Winter Stone Flies (Capina sp.), May Flies: Midges (Diptera / Chironomous), Early Blue-Winged Olive (Baetis tricaudatus), Dark Gray Quill (Ameletus connectus) and Caddies Flies: Grannom (Brachycentrus occidentalis) and Green Sedge (Ryacophila sp.). In May, June, July and August there are Stone Flies: Salmon Fly (Pteronarcys californica), Western Big Golden Stone Fly (Calineuria californica), Western Medium Golden Brown Stone Fly (Isoperla sp.), Little Yellow Stone Fly (Alloperla pallidula) and Little Olive Stone Fly (Alloperla delicata); May Flies: Midges (Diptera / Chironomous), Late Blue-Winged Olive (Baetis parvus), Little Western Blue-Winged Olive (Ephemerella margarita), Western Green Drake (Drunella grandis), Pale Morning Dun (Ephemerella inermis and Ephemerella infrequens), Small Western Green Drake (Ephemerella flavilinea), Western Leadwing (Isonychia sicca) and Dark Gray Quill (Ameletus connectus); Caddis Flies: Grannom (Brachycentrus occidentalis), Green Sedge (Ryacophila sp.), Great Gray Spotted Sedge (Arctopsyche grandis), Little Tan Short Horn Sedge (Glossosoma sp.), Ring Horn Microcaddis (Leucotrichia pictipes), Spotted Sedge (Hydropsyche sp.), Little Sister Sedge (Cheumatopsyche campyla) and Little Plain Brown Sedge (Lepidostoma pluviale). In September and October there are May Flies: Late Blue-Winged Olive (Baetis parvus), Little Western Blue-Winged Olive (Ephemerella margarita), Tiny Western Olive (Pseudocloeon edmundsi), Pale Morning Dun (Ephemerella inermis and Ephemerella infrequens), Gray Drake (Siphlonurus occidentalis), White Winged Black (Tricorythodes minutus), Caddis: Giant Orange Sedge (Dicosmoecus sp.) and Midges (Diptera / Chironomous).

Book Summary: Normal 0 The Bighorn River, which runs through the Crow Indian Reservation, opened to the general fishing public in 1981 from action taken by the U.S. Supreme Court. The Bighorn River in Montana begins below the Yellow Tail Dam and After-Bay. The After-Bay was constructed to hold the super saturated Nitrogen water, created by peek power generation from Yellowtail Dam, allowing the Nitrogen too dissipate before entering the Bighorn River. At times the trout below the After-Bay experience high levels of Nitrogen and the trout get Nitrogen Narcosis, the “Bends”; this can decimated the trout fishery. The Bighorn River flows northerly through a wide valley that is heavily farmed and there are irrigation diversion in the lower river divert large volumes of water from the river. The highest trout populations and fishing crowds are in the first 13-miles of river below the Yellowtail After-Bay. The species composition, Rainbow and Brown Trout, in the Bighorn River have fluctuated wildly since the 1981 trout fishing opener. The latest Rainbow Trout population decline is due to Whirling Disease infestation throughout the Bighorn River. The Bighorn River is a large western river with very few places a person can walk across the width of the river. The water is generally clear, except during run-off when water is released over Yellowtail Dam. The shoreline along the river and the many islands are filled with large Cottonwood Trees. The fishing on the river is either exceptional or it is poor. Some of the runs below a riffle-run may contain over a thousand-trout in just a few hundred-yards of river. Many of the guides on the river have their client’s fish nymphs through these large pods of trout. Fishing in this manner can get anyone into hooking fish. The reason is, the trout are stacked in the run like cordwood and while the trout is gilling for oxygen their mouths open and the tippet is pulled through their mouths and the fly inadvertently sticks the fish in the mouth. I have observed this many times while snorkeling. Normal 0 Normal 0 Normal 0 This books purpose is to provide factual data and useful information needed to experience a successful day fishing for Wild Trout in the Rocky Mountains. It is not uncommon to spend hundreds if not thousands of dollars in the pursuit of fishing for Wild Trout. This book can provide the needed information for a successful fishing trip: water temperature, water level, water turbidity, air temperature, weather conditions, daily hatches, stomach analysis from Wild Trout landed, “GDB” flies fished, fly fishing presentations, trout species, trout lengths and geographic location. An Outfitter or Guide will charge you $300.00 to as high as $500.00 for a day of fishing but by reading this book you will be able to catch Wild Trout on your own. The “GDB” Flies used to catch and land all the Wild Trout contained in this book were “Originated” and “Hand-Tied” by the Author.

Book Summary: Winner of the American Library Association's 2014 Boyd Award for Literary Excellence in Military Fiction. Between May 5 and June 3, 1864, the Union and Confederate armies suffered 88,000 casualties. Twenty-nine thousand were killed, wounded or captured in the first two days of combat. The savagery shocked a young, divided nation. Against this backdrop of the birth of modern warfare and the painful rebirth of the United States, New York Times bestselling novelist Ralph Peters has created a breathtaking narrative that surpasses the drama and intensity of his recent critically acclaimed novel, Cain at Gettysburg. In Hell or Richmond, thirty days of ceaseless carnage are seen through the eyes of a compelling cast, from the Union's Harvard-valedictorian "boy general," Francis Channing Barlow, to the brawling "dirty boots" Rebel colonel, William C. Oates. From Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee to a simple laborer destined to win the Medal of Honor, Peters brings to life an enthralling array of leaders and simple soldiers from both North and South, fleshing out history with stunning, knowledgeable realism. From the horrific collision of armies in the Wilderness, where neither side wanted to fight, to the shocking slaughter of the grand charge at Cold Harbor, this epic novel delivers a compelling, authentic, and suspenseful portrait of Civil War combat. Commemorating the approaching 150th anniversary of this grim encounter between valiant Americans, Ralph Peters brings to bear the lessons of his own military career, his lifelong study of this war and the men who fought it, and his skills as a bestselling, prize-winning novelist to portray horrific battles and sublime heroism as no other author has done.

Book Summary: In the most extraordinary book Ann Rule has ever undertaken, America's master of true crime has spent more than two decades researching the story of the Green River Killer, who murdered more than forty-nine young women. The quest to discover the most prolific serial killer in American history has been an intimate part of Ann Rule's life, with some of the corpses found only a mile or so from where she lived and raised her own daughters. She did not know the killer, but he apparently knew her and attended many of her book signings. For twenty-one years, the killer carried out his self-described "career" as a killing machine, ridding the world of women he considered evil. His eerie ability to lure his victims to their deaths and hide their bodies made him far more dangerous than any infamous multiple murderer in the annals of crime. A few men -- including a law student, a truck painter, and a taxi driver -- eventually emerged as the prime suspects among an unprecedented forty thousand scrutinized by the Green River Task Force. Still, there was no physical evidence linking any of them to the murders until 2001, when investigators used a new DNA process on a saliva sample they had preserved since 1987, with stunning results. Ann Rule has followed the case since July 1982, when the first body -- that of teenager Wendy Lee Coffield -- was found in the Green River, snagged on pilings under a bridge. Rule has compiled voluminous files, working through an incredible 95,000 pages of official police records, transcripts, photographs, and maps, winnowing out the chaff and identifying what is truly important. Over the years, she gained unparalleled access to all the key players -- from King County Sheriff Dave Reichert to those close to the killer and his victims. When finally apprehended and convicted, the killer made a detailed confession -- of his twisted sexual obsessions -- that will shock even the most jaded reader. Green River, Running Red is a harrowing account of a modern monster, a killer who walked among us undetected. It is also the story of his quarry -- of who these young girls were, and who they might have become. A chilling look at the darkest side of human nature, this is the most important and most personal book of Ann Rule's long career.

Book Summary: At 55, Rae Padilla Francoeur had no idea that the most deeply fulfilling sexual relationship she'd ever encounter was still to come. In her memoir, Free Fall, Francoeur discloses her discovery of a new love after nearly two decades in a relationship that won't end, despite her need and desire to move on. Francoeur succumbs entirely to the intensely physical and stimulating relationship she finds with this new man—allowing her body and mind to truly embrace pleasure and sexual desire—and shares intimate details of a love affair that changes everything, leading her to celebrate her sexuality and rediscover herself. Free fall, Francoeur says, is a choice: Let go. Be here now. Open up to the possibilities. Choosing to let go is a tall order for a woman who's lived her life as a single parent, a loving and attentive mate to a man with bipolar disorder, and a creative director in a busy museum—but when she finally succeeds in choosing herself, she views life anew, sensitized by sexual desire and dramatic change. Her new lover says, "Everything is foreplay." With him, Francoeur learns to embrace her sexuality and the profound pleasure bodies bring, even as they age.

Book Summary: The Clarkfork of the Columbia River and most of its tributaries contained Western Montana’s best trout streams prior to the arrival of the white man. When the Berkley Pit in Butte, Montana began mining copper it was the beginning of the demise for the Clarkfork River. Years of smelting oar at the nearby town of Anaconda, Montana polluted the flood plains of the upper and lower Clarkfork River Basin with tons of toxic materials. These toxic materials have been distributed throughout the entire Clarkfork River Basin by years of spring run-off. Man-kind has been trying to clean up the devastated Clarkfork River for quite some time now; this is one of America’s largest Environmental Protection Agencies Super Fund Sites and our government agencies can not make a sound decision on how to clean up the river. Millions of dollars have been spent on constructing settling ponds, stream by-pass’s and the liming of the out-let water flowing from the settling ponds near the town of Anaconda to help restore but not permanently solve the real problems that exist with the Clarkfork River. These large deposits of toxic waste originate from the town of Butte, Montana continuing downstream to the Mill Town Dam; three miles east of the city of Missoula, Montana. With all the problems on the Clarkfork River I am amazed that there is still some excellent fishing in certain areas of the river system, however I would advise you not to consume any trout from the Clarkfork River; they are loaded with extremely toxic materials. Beginning in 1984 through 1987 I worked for the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Department as a Fisheries Technician performing fish population estimates on most of the trout waters in Region #2 in Western Montana. I conducted trout populations on the Clarkfork River from Anaconda downstream to its confluence with the Flathead River near Paradise, Montana. I also conducted trout population estimates on the Clarkfork River Tributaries most notably: the Blackfoot River and Tributaries, Bitterroot River and Tributaries and Rock Creek. The fishable section of the Clarkfork River originates at the outlet of the settling ponds just outside Anaconda, Montana and flows northwesterly to the Idaho State Line. I will try to give a run-down on the trout populations throughout the Clarkfork River Drainage. The Clarkfork River just below the settling ponds is big fish water; these large fish have migrated through the ponds and entered the Clarkfork River system. These trout are predominantly Brown Trout and can reach 20-pounds, however most of the population consists of one to three-pound Brown Trout and Rainbow Trout from 1½ to 10-pounds. The Brown Trout population in this area varies from year to year depending on the quantities of heavy metals entering the river system each year from the nearby smelting tailings from Anaconda. Some years the trout population is only 1,500 trout per mile of stream and in other years it is as high as 6,000 trout per mile of stream. The Clarkfork River Brown Trout population falls off rapidly just a few miles downstream towards the town of Deer Lodge; to just 250 trout per mile of stream. However, there is a high concentration of Brown Trout at the Deer Lodge sewage treatment plant out-let. These Brown Trout are neon colored due to the high level of nutrients entering into the river from the sewage settling ponds. From Deer Lodge to the Little Blackfoot River confluence, the Clarkfork River Brown Trout population is around 250 fish per mile of stream. The Brown Trout population increases slightly in the Clarkfork River from the confluence of Little Blackfoot River downstream to the confluence with Gold Creek. Gold Creek downstream to Rock Creek the Clarkfork River streambed was altered when the Interstate 90 Freeway was built and the river was channelized and constructed with a constant gradient. The Clarkfork River Brown Trout population below the Gold Creek confluence with the Clarkfork River falls to just 25 Brown Trout per mile of stream until it reaches its confluence with Rock Creek. The Clarkfork River from Rock Creek downstream to Mill Town Dam and its confluence with the Blackfoot River upstream from the Dam the combined trout population increases tremendously to 1,500 to 2,000 trout per mile of stream. The Clarkfork River trout species composition also changes; this section of the Clarkfork River, Rock Creek downstream to the dam supports 55% Rainbow Trout up to twenty-two inches in length, 5% Westslope Cutthroat Trout up to twenty-two inches in length, 43% Brown Trout up to twenty-four inches in length, 1% Bull Trout up to thirty- six inches in length and 1% Northern Pike some over 40-inches in length. Mill Town Dam was built without a fish ladder; this barrier has decimated the historic Clarkfork River Native Trout runs; the Westslope Cutthroat Trout and the Bull Trout. The Clarkfork River trout population is poor downstream from Mill Town Dam to its confluence with the Bitterroot River at only 500 to 750 trout per mile of stream. This section of the Clarkfork River runs through the city of Missoula, Montana. Until 1974 it was legal to throw garbage off any bridge in Missoula into the Clarkfork River. One of the best Westslope Cutthroat Trout and Bull Trout streams in Montana flows into the Clarkfork River in the heart of Missoula, Rattlesnake Creek. The Clarkfork River trout population below the Bitterroot River confluence increases slightly to 750 to 1,500 trout per mile of stream and is maintained at this level downstream to its confluence with the Flathead River. The section of the Clarkfork River below the confluence of the Bitterroot River contains some of the hardest fighting and leaping Rainbow Trout you will find anywhere in Montana. The Rainbow Trout in this section can reach over 25-inches in length and weight over 10-pounds. Also this section contains the Native Bull Trout, which can exceed 20-pounds. Now an update to the Clarkfork River January 1st, 2011; in the spring of 2008 the Mill Town Dam was breached and all migrating trout species now had access to the Blackfoot River, the Upper Clarkfork River and their tributaries. When they breached the Mill Town Dam the trout fishery for miles downstream was devastated by all the toxins that were released and most of the trout species were killed.
