I am not a voratious reader. These are some easy to read books on Fly Fishing. If you buy from used book sellers, the biggest expense is shipping. Good reading for a cold winter's night.

Jonathan has sent me several of Gierach's books. Think I have read them all now. On cold snowy evenings they make for good reading. Someone once said "Perhaps the best fishing is done from the arm chair." Seems more true the older you get.

Cheers for a Good New Year!

Amen! Truer every day. ( Looks like I put one too many I's in his name, Can't correct. Actually is Gierach.)

Have to say Gierach's most telling tale is in Dances with Trout, the essay titled Bugs.
The neoprene hatch at Henry's Fork, where all the coffee shops are crowded with long-billed yachting caps boasting Latin.
At the river, the guy catching all the fish is wearing Red Ball waders, and talking about the big yellow bugs.
