A fascinating, entertaining dive into the long-standing relationship between humans and insects, revealing the surprising ways we depend on these tiny, six-legged creatures. Insects might make us shudder in disgust, but they are also responsible for many of the things we take for granted in our daily lives. When we bite into a shiny apple, listen to the resonant notes of a violin, get dressed, receive a dental implant, or get a manicure, we are the beneficiaries of a vast army of insects. Try as we might to replicate their raw material (silk, shellac, and cochineal, for instance), our artificial substitutes have proven subpar at best, and at worst toxic, ensuring our interdependence with the insect world for the foreseeable future. Drawing on research in laboratory science, agriculture, fashion, and international cuisine, Edward D. Melillo weaves a vibrant world history that illustrates the inextricable and fascinating bonds between humans and insects. Across time, we have not only coexisted with these creatures but have relied on them for, among other things, the key discoveries of modern medical science and the future of the world's food supply. Without insects, entire sectors of global industry would grind to a halt and essential features of modern life would disappear. Here is a beguiling appreciation of the ways in which these creatures have altered--and continue to shape--the very framework of our existence.

Maine offers some of the most diverse angling opportunities in the nation. Depending on the season, or your fishing preference, you can canoe a remote pond in search of native brook trout, cast dries in solitude for rising trout on a large freestone river, troll in a lake for salmon, or search for stripers along some of the most beautiful and rugged coastline in America. Because of this diverse fishing, it is no surprise that Maine also has a rich fly tying tradition.

Detailed recipes and photos are included for each fly as well as fishing tips and other information, making this book an invaluable resource for anyone planning to visit this state as well as residents that want to learn how to catch more fish in their local waters.

As fly fishing increases in popularity and rivers and streams become more congested, anglers must come up with strategies to fool the bright and finicky fish. Through years of experimentation both on the water and at the vise, Lloyd Gonzales has developed techniques for tying artificial mayflies, sedges, stoneflies, and baitfish that focus on general styles of flies and variations to deal with specific challenges to catch tricky trout. This modern fly-style approach, focusing on a fly's design and construction rather than on a specific pattern, is applicable to more situations and more easily adjusted to match local species than the traditional pattern approach. The fly-style approach is orderly-styles progress through the book, establishing a framework that can support any skill level and type of water-and fluid, allowing for experimentation and a personal flair, a key to tying flies that bring success on fly-saturated pressured water.
