Poems on love, dreams and solitude are a dime a dozen but it is as rare as finding a jewel in the sand to chance upon poems about one's vocation...
Poet Nancy Puglisi finds employment a subject worthy of poetic expression. Her poems are a means to explore the journey of one's life while earning a living and building a meaningful existence. "Fishing without a Hook" examines attitudes, routines and relationships within the workplace. Join the author as she describes the challenges of creating experiences at work that can be engaging, principled and fulfilling.
"Fishing without a Hook" provides an eclectic collection of poems focused on the philosophical concepts of compassionate heart, open mind and good intention which Nancy has embraced and applied to her work in the office and in the classroom. Replete with wisdom, this thought provoking anthology prompts readers to glean insight into their own "on the job dynamics" while contemplating the author's highs and lows with her work related encounters.

Includes a 72-minute DVD demonstrating basic nymph fishing techniques Color photo sequences to teach 11 different nymph fishing methods, including Czech, hinged leader, Leisenring lift, and wet-fly swing Detailed information on imitating mayflies, stoneflies, caddisflies, true flies, scuds, and sow bugs In nature nothing happens without a reason. The difficulty for the angler is merely that the reason is hidden some way beneath the surface.--G. E. M. SkuesDuring the considerable periods of time trout spend feeding exclusively on underwater food forms, nymph fishing can be the most productive, if not the only way to catch fish. But understanding what occurs below the water's surface can be a challenge for even the most experienced angler. In Nymph-Fishing Rivers and Streams, aquatic entomologist and long-time fly fisherman Rick Hafele shares the information necessary to successfully decipher the mysteries of trout life. He starts by explaining their feeding patterns--where trout feed, when they feed, and what's available for them to eat. Sections on tackle and pattern selection help anglers sort through equipment and imitations to find the best outfit for their needs. The DVD complements the photos in the book that show various methods for nymph fishing. Also included is an angler's field guide to nymphs with details on their habitat, importance to trout, and the most effective patterns and fishing tactics to imitate them."

Nine-year-old Sam loves fishing with his dad. So when his pesky little sister, Lucy, horns in on their fishing trip, he's none too pleased: "Where's my stringer? / Something's wrong! / The princess doll does not belong!" All ends well in this winsome book of poems-each labelled with its proper poetic form, from quatrain to tercet. Together the poems build a dawn-to-dusk story of a father-son bond, of sibling harmony lost and found-and most of all, of delicious anticipation. Charming line drawings animate the poetry with humour and drama, and the extensive Poet's Tackle Box at the end makes this the perfect primer to hook aspiring poets of all ages. AGES: 6-9 AUTHOR: Tamera Wissinger was inspired to write this novel-in-verse after writing "Night Crawlers," a poem that stemmed from her fun childhood memories of night crawler hunting with her dad before fishing trips. She is a graduate of Hamline University's MFA Writing for Children program. This is her first book. Matthew Cordell and his brother Eric were all-around best buds. They grew up in a small town in South Carolina, where his family would often take fishing trips together. Matthew is the illustrator of Like Pickle Juice on a Cookie by Julie Sternberg and Justin Case by Rachel Vail. Colour illustrations
