Should try the "Sword of Truth" series by Terry Goodkind, if you haven't already.

This may be of interest to some of you guys. "Where Birght Waters Meet" it is free as an ebook on the UK sight. Excellent read.

Just started this series after reading your post, and am starting book 4 today. Great series! Thanks!

In addition to reading Stillness at Appomattox - a great book - I'm reading Dynamic Nymphing by George Daniel. This book is destined to be a classic. I think it's a must for anyone who is serious about nymphing.

Randy,

Do you have the first of that set, The Army of The Potomac? I read them both long ago and have even recommended them on this thread.

Recently decided it was time for some classic reading and picked up a copy of "A River Never Sleeps"' by Roderick Haig Brown.

Only a couple chapters into it but am enjoying his writing very much.

My wife gave Nick Lyons' collected essays from his years writing for FlyFisherman (I think it was), Confessions of a Fly Fishing Addict. It's a nice collection.

I had mentioned that I wanted to learn more about fishing wets and soft hackles to Popperfly, so he loaned my three of Sylvester Nemes' books and I have been working through them, excellent reading by the way: The Soft-Hackled Fly and Tiny Soft Hackles, Two Centuries of Soft-Hackled Flies and The Soft-Hackled Fly.

A couple weeks back I read American Sniper by Navy Seal Chris Kyle, also an excellent read!

If you ever have thoughts of fishing on the Henry's Fork, pickup a copy of Mike Lawson's new book "Fly-Fishing Guide to the Henry's Fork".

My favorite is Centennial. The first chapter is devoted to the evolution of the Rockies, where we live. Most here have never heard the term "Ancestral Rockies". The rest is ok, too...
