The perfect balance for those searching for a bit of peace and quiet and an outdoor activity: fly fishing combines connecting with nature, the defining of personal aesthetics, and physical activity. The Flyfisher shows the most beautiful fishing spots, self-tied flies, and the right equipment for this increasingly popular lark of leisure. Equal parts outdoor meditation and escapism, fly fishing appeals to a diverse audience. The dedicated focus on the task at hand makes daily life fade away and the fly fisher is free to connect with the soothing sounds of the water while awaiting a catch. From rod to reel to weighted line, the art of fly fishing is rife in details. Filled with photos of anglers and their habitats, the craftsmanship of tying flies, and expert discussions on the right gear to wear to wade into a favorite river, The Flyfisher is the first comprehensive discussion of this multifaceted sport. It is as much about the triumphant catch as the craft of building bait paired with the art of appreciating the overall experience as well as the method.

Peter Bellis carved his name into lawn bowls legend with his famous "perfect bowl", the last chance come-from-behind toucher that won him the world singles title over local Scottich hero Willie Wood in Aberdeen. In Perfect Bowls Belliss expounds on the training, strategy and tactics that produced not only that incredible winning shot, but took him to further world titles in the pairs and triples. As resident professional at the Cabramatta club in Sydney, Australia, Belliss continues to reign as a giant in the world game. Still relatively young for a bowler, his best is perhaps yet to come. Revealing all the keys to Belliss's extraordinary success at the highest levels of the game, Perfect Bowls is a must for every bowler, regardless of age or ability.
