I am not what I would consider an artist and I needed something I could do easily at home. This book gave me all the information I needed to know about all the paints on the market, and all of the relevant tools I needed - making it very easy to shop, and there was a project that worked with each of the paints. The projects are great, they are not cheesy like some other books I have but, rather they are elegant, classic, tasteful and easy to duplicate. You will find lots of great ideas and I found the book easy to follow, inspiring, full of very useful information, and something fun I can handle. As the author, Carin Heiden Atkins, says something like this in her introduction - leave your worries at the door, sit back, play your favorite music, and have a great time. You really can do this. I have recommended this book to many friends and I whole heartedly recommend this book to you. " [563] .

Illustrated in b/w. ; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 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 any other method. " Rosenbauer goes on to cover rods and line sizes, reels, leaders, casting technique, flies, fly selection, fish behavior, tactics, and accessories. He even provides an essential reading list. ...
