Departure Publishing Supports Spey Fishing In The Great Lakes as well as great indi fishing authors

Jul 9, 2013   //   by Geoff Schaake   //   Cack Handed, Like Minded Mofos, Mojo, Raffle Prizes  //  Comments Off on Departure Publishing Supports Spey Fishing In The Great Lakes as well as great indi fishing authors

On the table for the raffles at Spey Nation will be two books donated by Departure Publishing. 

The first, the Montauk Coffee Table Book “The Blitz” 

The Blitz

 Over the course of a year, Pete McDonald and Tosh Brown followed an immeasurable biomass of predators and prey on their annual oceanic migration from Maine to North Carolina.

From Casco Bay to The Outer Banks, they shot photographs, burned video footage, and interviewed an eclectic cast of anglers, guides, merchants, and fly tiers. They filled rent cars with sand, they fought ill-mannered dogs in cheap motels, and they boosted convenience store profits in nine different states.

Departure Publishing is proud to present The Blitz, Fly Fishing the Atlantic Migration. Through McDonald’s turn of phrase, and Brown’s eye for imagery, they have created an engaging and comprehensive view of the beaches, tidal rips, birds, bait, and gamefish of the Eastern Seaboard. This is not a how-to-where-to guidebook; it’s an offbeat celebration of the unique and vibrant fly-fishing culture of striped bass, bluefish, tuna, bonito, false albacore, redfish, and other nearshore pelagics.

Joining McDonald and Brown in this collaboration are celebrated East Coast photographers, Dave Skok, Brian Horsley, Sarah Gardner, Jim Levison, Matt Boutet, Sam Talarico, Barry and Cathy Beck, and others.

If you’re partial to crashing surf, panicked baitfish, diving birds, and busting fish, this book is the perfect complement to your fly-fishing collection.

And the second: The Alaska Chronicles

The Alaska Chronicles

 On September 20, 2007, Miles Nolte posted the final installment of his summer job memoir on The Drake magazine’s Internet message board. For seventeen weeks, Nolte had used his laptop and a satellite Internet connection to transmit his semi-daily account of what it’s really like to be a fly fishing guide on a remote Alaskan river.

Sitting in his tent above a river packed with migrating salmon and gluttonous trout, he wrote about anglers that he enjoyed guiding and others that he couldn’t wait to get rid of. He described epic fishing days and days of bitter disappointment. He typed about wolves and eagles and beavers and bears. Lots of bears. There were periods of sunny weather and dry flies, followed by stretches of relentless rain, wind, and cold. And beyond the trials that nature doled out, Miles also described how overworked outboards don’t always start, tents sometimes catch fire, and dysfunction often runs rampant among divergent guide and client personalities that are thrust together in a desolate and trying environment.

By the time Miles returned from Alaska, his online musings had attracted a loyal and vicarious following of anglers and guides from around the world. They praised him for his articulate candor, and they thanked him profusely for transporting them with each new post to a place they may have otherwise never reached.

Departure Publishing is proud to present The Alaska Chronicles, a fishing guide’s memoir that originated and evolved in a most unusual manner. If you’ve ever fished Alaska, or if you hope to someday, this book will leave you with an insightful view of the outfitting business and a newfound appreciation for North America’s most pristine and prolific coldwater fishery.

 

And because I like both Niles and Tosh so much, and because I don’t think it would jeapordize any future dealings with either of them…
