I'm mostly driven by recommendations but then I'm an analyst by trade so I do a lot of searching around on the 'net and find some pretty amazing books.... check out my blog for a list of books that are on my shelf (check back periodically cause I'm a reader and I'll be adding to this list monthly!!)....

I also purchase books based on the author. The only exception is when I buy local or regional books.

My fly tying is very specific to the San Juan and also very small. My favorite authors came about as a need to decieve some very crafty rainbows. Amoung these are Gary borger " Designing Trout Flies " Shane stalcup" MayFly's top to bottom " Gary LaFontain " Caddis Flies " AK Best, all of his books books. Emergers and Tying small flies. These books all lend a huge insight into fly tying biology and trout thinking. Midgeaholic.
