Default Literature...

I am a bit of a nut when it comes to reading, something I really enjoy...

Always on the lookout for new books to read, if anyone has anything they may want to get rid of, post it here or shoot me a PM, might be interested.

Happy New Year!

Sorry! I guess I should have been a little more specific!

Not just fly fishing, but loosely related.

Right now I am finishing up a book on the history of the Colorado River titled "River Notes" by Wade Davis, not really about fly fishing, but definitely something that interests me.

Anything to do with nature really interests me, heck who knows, if you have something you thought was good, mention it, I may bite!

If you haven't read it then I would recommend Pale Morning Done by Jeff Hull.

Another outstanding book. Not at all what the title suggest. The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein. Simply an outstanding read.
