Gr. 4-6. Distilling experiences garnered from a lifetime of fishing, boating and wildlife observation, naturalist Arnosky offers outdoorsy readers a handbook that is as much memoir as vademecum. In an engaging mixture of personal anecdotes and practical tips, he covers the ins and outs of fresh- and saltwater fishing, with, in turn, bait, lures, and flies. He then moves on to the pleasures of messing about in small boats, and finishes with a chapter on safe, nondisruptive techniques for watching wildlife along shores and waterways. Illustrated with finished paintings, quick sketches from his notebooks (including several entire sample pages), and small but very sharp color photos, this fills in the basics on diverse topics from boating safety to artificial flies to sport fish and shore birds, while providing the sort of agreeable pleasure reading also found in Gary Paulsen's outdoor reminiscences.
