I have Bradford's Wild Game Cook Book, he is an interesting fellow.

I have been browsing and reading 'A Book of Trout Flies' Preston Jennings. I managed to scoff up a first print from 1935 as new in the hard slip case. This old timer was an interesting type also.

I felt that.. though not a religious fellow.. It being one of the earliest pieces of literature on fly fishing that i should pick it up and give it a read.. needless to say it is not an easy read by anymeans.. Old English can be a pita to read.. But overall so far I enjoy it

PS: the ebook is free on amazon if anyone is interested in giving it a read

Anything and everything by CJ Box. Been a fan for years.

His Joe Pickett series revolves around a game warden, so much of it takes place in the outdoors. Don't let that fool you, though. His plots are brilliant, there is plenty of actions, and the characters are very realistic.

I finished reading Force of Nature a few months ago. The first paragraph in the book goes like this:

"HIS NAME was Dave Farkus, and he’d recently taken up
fly-fishing as a way to meet girls. So far, it hadn’t
worked out very well.


It is a good book. Better to read them in order, though. The first chapter is the only one that mentions fly fishing.

Give "The Count Of Monte Cristo" (Dumas) a go. Not terribly difficult, but VERY descriptive! Ended up after about half way through, i bought the audio version.

"How Nasa Builds Teams" Just ordered, supposedly a great read to build cohesiveness.

Also reading about chicken production, am wondering if I can time the chick arrival date and their age to efficient free ranging to our grasshopper season.

Moby Dick, that is a great book and need to read it again.
