What's your choice of the best book for a beginning flyfisher to read?

The Curtis Creek Manifesto is the best I know of. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/093...lance&n=283155

I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.

I would recommend The Orvis Guide to Prospecting for Trout by Tom Rosenbauer and The Orvis Guide to Reading the Water. Those are two of the best books I used to learn the sport from scratch.

I already read Ernest Schwiebert's two-volume "Trout" to first learn how to fly fish... it's out of print, and not at all on a beginner level, but if you like to just dive right in over your head it's a really great book!
