Thread: How Big Is Your Library

  1. #1

    Default How Big Is Your Library

    One of the cool things about fly-fishing is that there are so many nuances in; the casting, the waters, the target species, the entomology, the tying, the destinations, and the history – that the subject has spawned hundreds (if not thousands) of books dedicated to the subject.

    So how many fly-fishing related books are in your personal library?

    Here's a peek at my modest collection… 21 books currently, and 4 lost to either loaning-out, moving, or just plain old misplaced. I'm always on the lookout as well and keep a running "hot list" on my phone just in case I run across 'em at some point.

    Not as many as Dick Cheney but probably to many. I did fish a section of the Powder River where supposedly only he fished. Does that count?

    Not really sure, but I reckon it's over 10 but not more than 20. I like fishing literature.

    I have almost as much of a book problem, as I do a gear problem!

    I figured the count would have been around 40, but it's actually over 75

    I didn't go count, but don't think I have 50 yet, but it's close. Most of mine are fly pattern books.

    I don't have nearly as many as Gary has, I didn't count but just guessing I think it is around 40-50 books, most aren't unpacked yet from the move.
