    "The Curtis Creek Manifesto" by Sheridan Anderson. The excerpt included in the November 1977 issue of Sports Afield grabbed my youthful attention and turned me off of bait fishing forever. Link to a review: Cool Tools: The Curtis Creek Manifesto
    The man who busies himself proclaiming something can't be done is frequently interrupted by the man doing it.

    Happy New Year, Everyone!

    I really like True Love and the Wooly Bugger and A Good Life Wasted both by Dave Ames.

    I found The Orvis Streamside Guide to Trout Foods and Their Imitations a good guide without being too deep.

    Lefty Kreh's Modern Fly Casting Method added 20 feet to my best cast.

    I forgot one, Robert Traver's "Trout Madness". This book of fishing stories and tales was way before the plethora of fishing literature today. It's all about the U.P. and funny as hell.
