Overview

A real veteran of the outdoors, H. G. Tapply writes from the direct, down-to-earth viewpoint of one who has "been there, done it". He denies being an expert in any sense of the word, but he is nevertheless a walking encyclopedia on virtually every phase of outdoor sport and writes with the true ring of authority on all aspects of fishing, hunting, camping, dog training, fly tying, and woodcraft.

With a new introduction written by his son, William G. Tapply, Tap's Tips thoroughly spans the tricks experts use, such as:
o hooking trout with flies.
o catching bass, pike, salmon, and panfish with lures and bait.
o selecting the right tackle.
o cleaning and cooking fish.
o getting more pleasure from a day on the water.
o hunting upland game birds, ducks, small game, big game, and varmints.
o handling guns (with a shooting tip practically guaranteed to make you a better wingshot).
o boating.
o choosing the companions that can make or break a trip into the woods.

Tapply's narrative skill makes reading this book almost as enjoyable as actually hooking a good-sized trout or watching a bird dog stiffen to a solid point on a cornered pheasant.
