SPORTSMAN'S LIBRARY: THE 100 BOOKS THAT EVERY HUNTER AND FISHERMAN SHOULD OWN Stephen J. Bodios famous review column in Grays Sporting Journal (1981-1992) included discussions on everything from hook and bullet how-tos to modern novels and science writing. Continuing in that tradition, A Sportsmans Library: 100 Essential, Engaging, Off-Beat, and Occasionally Odd Fishing and Hunting Books for the Adventurous Reader draws on the same wide-ranging curiosity and encyclopedic knowledge of sporting literature that informed Bodios Review.From all the familiar, beloved classicsbooks by Izaak Walton, Robert Ruark, and Norman Macleanto the hidden gems that no one but Bodio could have uncovered (ancient treatises on falconry, and modern considerations of the catfish as metaphor), each one of these short reviews is illustrated in color and presented in a browsable, easy-to-read format. Nowhere else could an explanation of the intricate beauty of a classic salmon fly rub elbows with a consideration of the craftsmanship of a Best London double. And rarely do you see the science of the hunt juxtaposed against the hunts depiction in art. ABOUT THE AUTHORStephen J.
