Looked at both on Amazon, very good reviews. $38 versus $12. Is the first one worth that much more

The Harry Murry book came out in 1989 so it might appear dated to some people. I'm not sure that the fish would agree
The Will Ryan book is more in depth in my opinion.
Bob Clouser wrote a book on smallmouth fishing as well, but I haven't read that one.

Bob Clouser used to fly fish smallmouth in the very same waters I fish! I would see him all the time, usually guiding.

The lower Susquehanna, just upstream of Harrisburg used to be a smallmouth paradise! I purchased his book and almost every pic is a spot that I have fished!

The bass are gone now, but there are lots of carp in the same spots. Good with a fly rod in that shallow water.

I like to read a lot, and I mostly like to read surf stripers with a fly rod....... but as Nick pointed out, I really like to go after "strippers" rather than "stripers"

I can recommend Black Bass & the Fly Rod by Charles Waterman.

Black Bass & the Fly Rod: Charles F. Waterman: 9780811716307: Amazon.com: Books Black Bass & the Fly Rod: Charles F. Waterman: 9780811716307: Amazon.com: Books

Lots of practical stuff intermixed with some great story telling and anecdotes. Nothing about strippers, though, neither largemouth nor smallmouth.

It's hard to find small mouth strippers. Natural selection I would think.....

Could be. I guess I always assumed they were a northern variety, since we don't seem to have them here in Florida...
