Modern-day fly fishing, like much in life, has become exceedingly complex, with high-tech gear, a confusing array of flies and terminal tackle, accompanied by high-priced fishing guides. This book reveals that the best way to catch trout is simply, with a rod and a fly and not much else. The wisdom in this book comes from a simpler time, when the premise was: the more you know, the less you need. It teaches the reader how to discover where the fish are, at what depth, and what they are feeding on. Then it describes the techniques needed to present a fly at that depth, make it look lifelike, and hook the fish. With chapters on wet flies, nymphs, and dry flies, its authors employ both the tenkara rod as well as regular fly fishing gear to cover all the bases. Illustrated by renowned fish artist James Prosek, with inspiring photographs and stories throughout, Simple Fly Fishing reveals the secrets and the soul of this captivating sport.

Yvon Chouinard ist Unternehmer wider Willen. Eigentlich wollte er nur Klettern und Surfen – und trotzdem baute er ein Multimillionen-Dollar-Unternehmen auf. In seiner Jugend verbrachte er viel Zeit in der Natur und ließ sich von seinem Vater das Schmiedehandwerk beibringen. Als begeisterter Kletterer entwickelte und verkaufte er sein eigenes Equipment, dessen Design sich bis heute kaum verändert hat. Nach und nach erweiterte er die Palette seines Angebots, wobei er und seine Mitarbeiter keine besondere Strategie verfolgten: Jeder tat, was nötig war – und worauf er Lust hatte. Aus dieser Mentalität entstand im Lauf der Zeit das erfolgreiche Unternehmen Patagonia. In dieser neu überarbeiteten Auflage zum 10-jährigen Jubiläum der Originalausgabe zeigt Yvon Chouinard – legendärer Kletterer, Geschäftsmann, Umweltschützer und Gründer von Patagonia, Inc. – wie seine eigene Lebensphilosophie zum erfolgreichen Unternehmensleitbild wurde und was Patagonia zu einem der am meisten respektierten und umweltbewussten Unternehmen der Erde machte. Lass die Mitarbeiter surfen gehen ist ein Buch, das sowohl für Unternehmer als auch Outdoor-Enthusiasten gleichermaßen beeindruckend ist.

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)

Moving Water: An Artist's Reflections on Fly Fishing, Friendship and Family was inspired by a rural New England childhood, by family art, by a lifetime of dawns and dusks, and by the death of a friend who knew where to find the beauty in his life. 42 color images, 20 touching vignettes. "You will probably read this beautiful little book in the time of a cup of tea but you will want to contemplate it over and over again." --Yvon Chouinard, author of Let My People Go Surfing and Simple Fly Fishing: Techniques for Tenkara and Rod and Reel "Quietly potent, Moving Water illuminates the mystery and joy of fly fishing. Dave Hall's serene visions and tender touch on the canvas offer refuges of restoration." -- Melanie Rae Thon, author of Silence & Song and The Voice of the River. "Dave Hall is a painter with his feet and mind in the natural world, a place he knows with uncommon intimacy." --Tom McGuane, author of The Longest Silence and The Cadence of Grasses. "The paintings are vibrant reminders of the importance of being in the wild. And what deepens Moving Water is the profoundly sparse narratives that read like exquisite haikus.

"These stories touch our hearts and souls. And our lives." --Craig Mathews, author of six books on flyfishing, including Western Fly Fishing Strategies. "The art is at once imaginative and serene.

A huge draw on the "2013 National Geographic Live" lecture series, the author shares the passion that led to her world record in mountaineering - First woman-and only the fourth climber ever-to summit all fourteen 8,000-meter peaks without supplemental oxygen or high-altitude porters - Though the two climbers are friends, Kaltenbrunner's path to high places has been very different from Edurne Pasaban's record-breaking feat - Positive, uplifting account of a remarkable athleteEffusive, charismatic, tough, Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner is one of the world's most successful high-altitude mountaineers and the first woman to climb all fourteen 8,000-meter peaks without supplemental oxygen-and she also eschews high-altitude porters. Mountains of My Heart covers her early years learning to climb in Austria, her personal life, her training as an oncology nurse, and her ever-present passion for mountains, especially the Himalaya. Her love of being in the mountains shines through in her writing: For Gerlinde the important thing was not the race to be the first woman to climb the 8,000-meter peaks, but rather to experience the mountains and climb them in her self-sufficient style. Self-sufficiency did not, however, mean climbing without her husband, Ralf Dujmovits; in 2009, Lhotse became her twelfth and his fourteenth 8,000-meter peak! Kaltenbrunner shares the challenges, dangers, and euphoria of her high-altitude climbs, detailing medical emergencies and her own feelings about being high in the mountains. Her writing is honest, captivating, and unrestrained.
