Default Anyone recognize these old books?

Thought I would take a walk down memory lane. These were the books I used and learned from growing up, plus a course from community school during the off season when I was 14 and 15. Anyone else have any of these?

The Fly Tier's manual is a nice book. The Expert Fly Tier was a good how to book

The only book i remember seeing at home when i started tying (20 years ago) was John Veniard "500 Salmon Flies"
I never tied a fly from a book until I was 32 (last year - a classic salmon fly book)
all my flies when i was young were tied from patterns i either had or saw in a magazine.

I actually have The Fly Tiers Manual. It's been very helpful even though I've only been tying for a couple of years! Found it used at my local fly shop for just a few bucks!

I have a copy of The Fly Tying Guide (by Dick Stewart I think) i've tied a lot of patterns from books and settled on the ones I like at this point.
