    This is a good thread John, the fly fishing fraternity is indeed a literate bunch Nancy is working through James Michener's 'Alaska' at this time, I read 'Mexico' and enjoyed his work very much and will read allaska when she finishes.

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    Saw your book about Catskill flies. I have 3 dries tied by Elsie Darby when a buddy of mine and I stopped by their house in 1947. Asked Harry to tie a few
    for us and he relied "I'll have my wife do them, she is faster, and better than I
    am. Great people and very friendly.
    Read a book about the Beaverkill a few years ago that brought back a lot of pleasant memories.

    If you have ever read this you might agree that there are several members of
    this Forum who would fit right in with this group of guys & their Trout water.
    Paul, You have piqued my interest, I'll investigate this one.

    Eunan, I noticed your 'Classic Salmon Flies' by Mikael Frodin.....I recently found a new one on ebay for $18.00 with shipping included and jumped on it. Talk about some beautiful flies and recipes.

    Tell me about the 'Carrie Stevens' book.

    You got a good deal, i bought mine for $30 on a different forum. Great book.
    The Radencich book is the ULTIMATE salmon fly book. 1700 patterns. Worth the $50-60 price tag.

    The Stevens book is the definitive one on her life, style and patterns. I believe all known Stevens streamers are in there.

    One other salmon fly book, more artistic (pictorially) than instructional is the Judith Dunham book. And the Paul Rossman books (the last two in the photo) are great for the very artistic in terms of the flies within.
    I just got the Rossman books at the weekend from Paul himself.

    Just finished Tom Rosenbauer's "Small Stream Fly Fishing". An excellent read. I am now reading Paul Schullery's "Mountain Time: A Memoir of Yellowstone". In part it is an appreciation of the lanscape and part an analysis of the ethical and practical issues of managing wildlife, including Trout, and visitors to the park. Two chapters on Trout management provide a great backdrop to recent forum discussion on Yellowstone policy. Paul was a Yellowstone Ranger, Curator of the Fly Fishing Museum in Vermont and is currently a scholar in residence at Montana State. He has written a number of books including a "History of American Fly Fishing". An excellent writer well worth the read. Do an Amazon.com search for Paul and see his numerous books.

    If there's any history/Civil War fans out there I just finished 1858. I think it's very good.

    For fly fishing history I'll recommend The Beaverkill by Ed van Put.
