FIELD AND STREAM: TAPS TIPS Area veteran of the outdoors, H. G. Tapply writes from the direct, down-to-earth viewpoint of one who has been there, done it. He denies being an expert in any sense of the word, but he is nevertheless a walking encyclopedia on virtually every phase of outdoor sport and writes with the true ring of authority on all aspects of fishing, hunting, camping, dog training, fly tying, and woodcraft.With a new introduction written by his son, William G. Tapply Jr.accomplished author of mystery novels and outdoor sports books including Upland Days, Pocket Water, and The Orvis Pocket Guide to Fly Fishing for Bass, Field & Stream contributing editor, and current writing professor at Emerson College and Clark University TAPS TIPS thoroughly spans the tricks experts use to catch trout with flies or bass, pike, salmon, and panfish with lures and bait; discusses tackle; how to clean and cook fish; and how to simply get more pleasure from a day on the water. Tapply also covers hunting upland game birds, ducks, small game, big game, and varmints; gun handling (with a shooting tip practically guaranteed to make you a better wingshot); boating; and also offers advice on the companions that can make or break a trip into the woods.Tapplys narrative skill makes reading this book almost as enjoyable as actually hooking a good-sized trout or watching a bird dog stiffen to a solid point on a cornered pheasant.Originally published in 1965, the hard cover version was reissued in 2004.ABOUT THE AUTHOR:H. G. TAPPLY, renowned Field & Stream associate editor and editor-in-chief of three national sporting magazines, was also one of the cofounders of The Salt Water Sportsman. Founding member of the New England Outdoor Writers Association, he published two previous books, several stories, and national magazine and encyclopedia articles. However, fishing and hunting were strictly for the fun of it. He died in 2002. ISBN: 1-932378-93-6 publish date: 09/14/2005
