I bought a copy about six months ago in "good as new" condition for $16.75, which I found using the best book-finding search engine I've found, Add-All (http://www.addall.com/
). I just ran a search on it to see what came up now and it found a copy from UK Amazon for $18.99 (around $30 total with shipping from the UK).
While I haven't read Dorsey's book (but intend to when I find it), I can testify to how good Engle's book is. It was so helpful to me in my fly-fishing on the Guadalupe (when it had water
)), San Juan, etc. that I bought two of his other books - Fishing Small Flies
and Tying Small Flies
using the same search engine. These books are obviously very relevant to fishing tailwaters, since tiny flies are the norm there. If you're still unable to find Fly Fishing the Tailwaters
at a price you find reasonable, you might try his Fishing Small Flies
, as there is some overlap with Fly Fishing the Tailwaters
On the whole, I'd rather be in Wyoming . . .
