If you’re yearning to fly fish, author Chris Santella has suggestions for you.

Fly Fishing Destinations You Won’t Want to Miss

Are you dreaming of landing that trout, bass, or other fish species?  

“Fifty Places to Fly Fish Before You Die” is full of breathtaking photography and detailed information about 50 of the world’s most spectacular fly fishing destinations. Author Chris Santella is a skilled freelance writer and storyteller who offers his readers a collection of 50 essays created by master fly anglers. The in-depth interviews feature extensive background information for each of the destinations with advice and fishing anecdotes that you’ll find enticing even on the coldest winter day.  Santella’s work is one you’ll commit to memory and refer to as a resource guide when you’re planning your next fly fishing getaway.

I received a copy as a Christmas present in 2018 and although I receive hundreds of book review requests (on a variety of topics) each month, I’d never run across this gem. Santella’s guide covers all of the details and history fly anglers looking for premium places to fish need to know. The “IF YOU GO” that follows each essay: “Prime Time,” “Getting There,” “Accommodations,” and “Equipment,”is invaluable.

Santella is a regular contributor to The New York Times, Forbes.com, and other fly fishing publications.

PodPocket: Ultimate AirPods’ Protection

How many earbuds have you found in your laundry? 

Add “PodPocket” to your list of fantastic gift ideas and banish tech gear from another run through the spin cycle and the dryer’s damaging heat.

Kids stuff their earbuds in their pants and hoodies’ pockets and when their clothes come off, so do their earbuds – straight into the washer and dryer. They often reappear as the laundry is being folded. Why? Because pockets are a notorious catch-all for tech gear, pens, pencils, and gadgets.

PodPocket review
PodPocket is a durable and aesthetically-pleasing pouch that allows Apple-loving folks to securely carry and protect their AirPods.

A PodPocket is in my opinion protection that’s practical but also innovative and aesthetically pleasing. These durable pouches are available in a variety of colors and accessorize well with a purse, backpack, and most outerwear. Clip them to a loop and you’re all set. PodPocket is also a perfect gift for Mom or Dad if you’re looking for a Mother’s or Father’s Day gift.

You’ll find the durability in the PodPocket’s precision-molded high-grade silicone case a perfect fit for your beloved AirPods. The protective gear provides a secure fit at a fraction of the cost you paid for the AirPods. A premium key ring and clasp securely attach while providing access that allows for charging while the AirPods are still in the PodPocket.

PodPocket is AFFORDABLY priced at $19.95.

You can purchase a PodPocket at podpockets.com/products

Acclaimed Photographer and Avid Adventurer Shares Techniques

Expressive Nature Photography 

“Expressive Nature Photography: Design, Composition, and Color In Outdoor Imagery” author Brenda Tharp makes a very clear distinction between photos that are creative versus correct.

To clarify that statement and not underplay the importance of knowing your camera and its settings inside and out, Tharp, a landscape, travel, and fine art photographer with more than 30 years experience, offers her readers an extraordinary guide to adding emotion and creativity to their photos. Don’t be mistaken. She covers in depth the technical details of photography, from the camera settings as they relate to light, exposure, and composition and inspires photographers to get outside early in the day and late at night to capture nature’s drama and beauty without the harshness of mid-day lighting.

Shooting at night, using filters to create long exposures, creating natural effects using light painting, and following and breaking the rules of composition are a few of the topics Tharp covers in this magnificent instructional book.  More than 250 awe-inspiring outdoor images drive home her point that we can all improve our approach to nature photography.

Does having a working knowledge of your camera guarantee an extraordinary photo? No, and most photographers encounter more than one roadblock on their journeys from beginner to expert or professional photographer. Tharp cultivates a greater understanding of how and when photographers should stray from the rules of composition.

Whether you use a high-tech, point-and-shoot, or cell phone camera, Tharp will teach you to move beyond what you already know about photography through a series of challenging exercises and tips. Each page features Tharp’s brilliant photographs as examples of the end result of combining masterful technique with a trained eye for detail. Her instruction is practical and inspiring.

Expressive Nature Photography is published by Monacelli Press, An imprint of The Monacelli Press, More information about Tharp’s upcoming workshops can be found at brendatharp.com or visit http://www.monacellipress.com/book/?isbn=9781580934671.
