Fish! A Remarkable Way to Boost Morale and Improve Results

Book Review
Here's another management parable that draws its lesson from an unlikely source--this time it's the fun-loving fishmongers at Seattle's Pike Place Market. In Fish! the heroine, Mary Jane Ramirez, recently widowed and mother of two, is asked to engineer a turnaround of her company's troubled operations department, a group that authors Stephen Lundin, Harry Paul, and John Christensen describe as a "toxic energy dump." Most reasonable heads would cut their losses and move on. Why bother with this bunch of losers? But the authors don't make it so easy for Mary Jane. Instead, she's left to sort out this mess with the help of head fishmonger Lonnie. Based on a bestselling corporate education video, Fish! aims to help employees find their way to a fun and happy workplace. While some may find the story line and prescriptions--such...

Paperback

Book Review
Conceived for novices, the Guide may be simple, but it's not simplistic. Filled with photographs and drawings and written in clear, direct prose, it's basic enough to demystify the ABC's of a complex sport and sophisticated enough to remain useful as a ready reference and constant refresher no matter what your angling skills. "The book," Rosenbauer admits up front, "is the bare bones of fly fishing; it does not set out to tell everything." The opening chapter answers the most important question for beginners: What is fly-fishing? "Fly casting," he explains, "makes it possible to deliver a relatively weightless lure or imitation of a living creature on target, using line weight to develop momentum. That's a fairly dry way of saying that, using a fly rod, you can catch fish with an artificial lure that can't be presented by...

For generations, steelhead have captured and captivated the hearts, minds, and souls of fly anglers in the Pacific Northwest.

With decades of steelhead experience under his belt, Shewey takes both the novice and experienced angler deep into steelhead territory. In his clear and entertaining style, Shewey covers everything the prospective steelhead hunter will want to know.
Beginning with biology, he explains the differences between steelhead and the more common Pacific salmon, and goes on to explain the differences between summer and winter steelhead, how they differ from rainbow trout, and why they're relatively uncommon....
