Anyone read any good literature lately? I've been going through a book filled with short stories from Earnest Hemingway.

Absolutely fantastic read.

Perhaps the most read in my entire library is my Hemmingway's short stories. I'm a philosophy reader so much of what I read is neither interesting or entertaining to most people; many times myself included. The last thing I finished was a Robert Kane's "Free Will". Excellent if you're game for philosophy literature.

Read the Civil War trilogy by Gingrich (yes that Gingrich) and Forstchen. Starts positing that Lee acts differently at Gettysburg and follows an alternative history of the war from there. Very interesting, though in the end many people die and the still South loses the war. Fascinating reading about the Civil War; the valor and virtue of many in it as well as the hellish conditions and battles. An important part of our history in the US.

On a side note, when I'd read about them crossing streams I'd find myself wondering what might be in the water.

Funny you mention that! I'll be in Emmitsburg, MD (about 5 miles south of Gettysburg, PA) at the Emergency Management Institute / National Fire Academy, for more than a week later this summer. I plan on bringing my rods, and maybe hitting Marsh Creek in Gettysburg, Tom's Creek in Emmitsburg, the Antietam Creek in Sharpsburg, MD (through the battlefield of the same name), and maybe some of that trophy trout water in Big Hunting Creek, in Catoctin Mountain Park (near Camp David).

I was daydreaming about those boys, in both blue and gray, who came across these creeks in the early 1860's, who much rather would bave been carrying a fishing rod than a musket.....

And rather be wearing a fishing shirt than those wool uniforms. If you get to do some fishing let me know what Lee, Longstreet, and Chamberlain would have caught if they could have done some fishing.

I've been reading Bergman's Trout.
I picked up a copy in February and it's been sitting on my coffee table ever since.
After following s fontinalis' thread Classic Wet Flies, I figured that I better get busy

I just re-read Seabiscuit and will again someday. It's the most exciting history book about the 20's and 30's you'll find.
