pdf epub fb2 djvu



A real 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, Tap's Tips thoroughly spans the tricks experts use, such as:o hooking trout with flies.o catching bass, pike, salmon, and panfish with lures and bait.o selecting the right tackle.o cleaning and cooking fish.o getting more pleasure from a day on the water.o hunting upland game birds, ducks, small game, big game, and varmints.o handling guns (with a shooting tip practically guaranteed to make you a better wingshot).o boating.o choosing the companions that can make or break a trip into the woods.Tapply's 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.
