Ken Schultz’s Essentials of Fishing is the new authority on the sport you love, whether you’re an expert or a beginner. 
Organized by topic, this information-packed reference offers fast and easy access to all of the fishing facts, instructions, and tips you need to get more bites, land more big ones, and have a lot more fun every time you dip a line in the water.

You’ll discover the latest advances in conventional, spinning, and fly rods and reels, and you’ll learn the essentials of knot tying, hook sharpening, and more. Schultz helps you perfect your flycasting, surfcasting, flipping, and pitching skills, and he shows you how to figure out where the fish are in streams, lakes, bays, and even the ocean. You’ll also learn a variety of retrieval methods, find tips on playing and landing fish, and get advice on measuring, weighing, storing, and cleaning your catch. 
Whether you prefer wading in a rushing brook or fording pounding surf, casting from a jetty or trolling from a boat, chumming in freshwater or drifting in saltwater, you’ll find completely up-to-date information on species and tactics, special techniques, preferred rigs, lures, and bait, picking your spot, angling etiquette, and safety. You’ll learn how to approach schooling fish, angle in brush and timber, night fish, ice fish, and much more. 
More than 450 exquisite drawings illustrate everything from mending fly fishing line to fishing around buoys and tuning lures, while more than fifty full-color photos depict some of the most exciting and satisfying moments in fishing.

    The inspiring life and career of the Miami Marlins’ pitcher, the youngest MLB All-Star in team history, who died in a tragic boating accident in 2016.   In August 2016, José Fernández’s girlfriend, Maria Arias, presented him with a special cake at a family dinner to celebrate that they were going to have a baby. For Fernandez, becoming a father marked a new milestone in a young life that had already been brimming with milestones: fleeing Cuba multiple times before making it to freedom in the United States; drafted by the Miami Marlins in the first round in 2011; making the 2013 and 2016 All-Star teams; winning the National League Rookie of the Year award in 2013, and becoming a US citizen last year. Suddenly, early in the morning of September 25, his life came to a tragic end in a boating crash that left his family, friends, and the baseball world devastated. This book is a Miami Herald tribute to baseball’s unforgettable young pitching sensation and lover of life.

    The first in-depth biography of one of the most talented and infamous legends to play in the National Football League-the life and times of pro football's first bad boy, famed Oakland Raiders quarterback Ken Stabler. 
    Ken "The Snake" Stabler was the embodiment of the original Men in Black-the freewheeling, hard-hitting Oakland Raiders. The league's first swashbuckling pass thrower, the mythical southpaw Southerner famous for come-from-behind drives late in the game, Stabler led the Raiders to their first Super Bowl championship in 1977. In an era dominated by gentleman quarterbacks like Roger Staubach and Bob Griese, this 1974 NFL MVP, four-time Pro-bowler, and Super Bowl champion was an iconoclast who partied as hard as he played and lived life unapologetically on his own-not the NFL's-terms. 
    Though Stabler's legacy is larger-than-life, there has never before been an exclusive account of him, until now. Snake goes deep under the surface of Stabler's persona to reveal a man who, despite his penchant for partying and debauchery, was committed to winning and being the best player he could be. From his college days playing for Bear Bryant at Alabama to his years with the Raiders under coach John Madden, his broadcasting career to his death in 2015 and the revelation that he suffered from chronic traumatic encephalopathy, known as C.T.E., Snake probes the myriad facets of Stabler's life on and off the field to tell his complete story, and explores how his legacy and the culture and times that pivotally shaped it, continues to impact football today.
