Kush's thread got me thinking about what fishing books really are
my favourites, so I spent a while browsing my library with that in mind. I tried to end up with a "top ten" but had to settle for an even dozen. Even that required some difficult choices and there's a lot of very good books that almost made the list. Any ways, here's my list (in alphabetical order, by author):
Coombs, Steelhead Fly Fishing
Duncan, The River Why?
Gierach, Death, Taxes and Leaky Waders (couldn't decide which of his books I liked best so went for his anthology)
Haig-Brown, A River Never Sleeps
Haig-Brown, Fly Fisherman's Fall (couldn't pick just one of Haig-Brown's 29 titles)
Leeson, Habit of Rivers
Maclean, River Runs
McGuane, The Longest Silence
Middleton, Earth is Enough
Raines, Fly Fishing Through the Mid-Life Crisis
Richardson, Lee Richardson's BC
Not much "how-to-catch-'em" here, but all highly recommended..
