I've quite a few,I think at the last count 250 -300 +,I have them in 2 Bookshelves,stored in different locations around the house as I've also moved a few times,plus the ones borrowed which have never been returned.
Also it's suprising when I go looking for something more seem to turn up.
Since The Internet came along I've slowed down on buying books & could count on both hands how many I've bought in the last 10 - 12 years.

Not really sure but I said 5 to 10 that are fly fishing related. I'm looking to pick up three more. Two from Vince Marinaro In the Ring of the Rise and A Modern Dry Fly Code and waiting on a friend's to hit the stands.

Ring of the Rise is on my "hot list" as well - albeit not as hot as others.

Picked up #22 on Tuesday - Fly-fishing Stillwaters for Trophy Trout (Rickards)

If I include digital copies of classics (kelson, Tolfrey, PT etc) i'm at about 20.
BTW, for those interested, the classics i mentioned are freely available online for download...you just need to know where to look

GARY, we are all so surpirsed...........

I voted 10-20, then I counted....as with my other books I grossly misunderestimicated! I counted my library en toto last time we moved and I was nearly at 1000; I was thinking I had 500-600. My fly-fishing related shelf is now more than one shelf and is in the 30+ range with a few buried on the tying desk.
