Default Re: Some (not so old) Flyfishing Books etc.

I would guess you would find background on the Copper John in a book called "Barr Flies" by John Barr... as he is the creator of said fly..

Currently I'm bouncing between "The Compleate Angler".. figured it's a fly fishing classic.. I should read it.. then to hone my skills I'm reading... "Dynamic Nymphing Techniques" and "Single-Handed Spey Casting"..

I too have recently started to read before bed... helps me settle down.. otherwise i can be up staring at my computer screen or the tv til 4-5am

I also have both books you mentioned in my Amazon wish-list... If i don't get them for X-mas I'll finally pull the trigger myself
