  • Prey (Fishing – Fly Tying and Exotic Lures) – Carl Richards

    Prey (Fishing – Fly Tying and Exotic Lures) – Carl Richards

    “designing and tying new imitations of fresh and saltwater forage foods”.

    Published by Lyons and Burford, New York in 1995 a first edition. Large octavo, 132 pages, nicely illustrated, some in colour.

    A special book for fly tyers and fisherman. A major part of the book is about the construction of saltwater prey imitations … sardines, shiners, sand lace, bonefish, crabs, shrimp, sea urchins … the art and skill involved in the process well described and much to be admired. We don’t fish but we love it!

    Prey much more than flies and bought plastic lures.

  • The Great Trout of Lake Pedder – Ned Terry First Edition 1994 – Signed by the Author

    The Great Trout of Lake Pedder – Ned Terry First Edition 1994 – Signed by the Author

    Published by Artemis , Hampden Road, Hobart 1994. Octavo, 120 pages. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket (note the speckled effect is the design not dirt!). Fishing Gold.

    A really special book about serious trout fishing on the world famous Lake Pedder. Also about the lake and the people of course that fished it. Signed by the author and in fine condition.

    The opening remarks by Keith Alcock who wrote the forward are repeating … In 1980 I was shopping at Hardy’s in London and an elderly sales assistant discovered I was from Tasmania. He exclaimed instinctively, “Oh, Lake Pedder! If I could only fish there once I would die happy.”

    Very well illustrated and with heaps of data regarding the success of various baits …seemingly the Banana fly was pretty good … but in the right conditions (tap the nose). All accompanied by a large fold-out map of the lake.

  • Museum Quality Fossil Bowfin Fish from the Messel Pits, Germany

    Museum Quality Fossil Bowfin Fish from the Messel Pits, Germany

    These fossils are found within the bituminous oil shales that occur near the village of Messel, Darmstadt, Germany. The fossils are removed from the shale using a technique called reverse transfer preparation, where the fossil is mounted onto a resin plate and the destructive oils shale is then removed leaving the fossil on the resin plate. This is the only way for them to be preserved and the method is used by leading authorities.

    Size of fish 26cm by 7cm, overall mount 36cm by 15cm.

    The Fish has a number of living relatives such as the mudfish, mud pike, dogfish, griddle etc. and is also related to the gars.
