    Whenever I see a reading list for fishing books, outdoors books or just great books, I  have to add Goodbye to a River by John Graves. It is a wonderful read!

    I am actually reading now..Lefty Kreh’s Presenting the Fly. Casting chapters. Oh Lefty – he makes it seem so easy in his books too.

    I agree about Goodbye to a River!

    Most of the great fly fishing titles have been mentioned, but don’t forget about Dave Ames.

    1. “A Good Life Wasted: or Twenty Years as a Fishing Guide”  
    2. “True Love and the Woolly Bugger” both by Dave Ames

    Someone may have already mentioned Dave Ames, I did not want to read through 13 pages of replies.

    Just finished reading “My Life Was This Big” by Lefty Kreh.

    I must admit that I haven’t searched the entire list of posting to see if this is already up, but I highly recommend “In Hemingway’s Meadow.” It is a collection eighteen Traver Award winning short stories from Fly Rod & Reel. Some are by familiar names like Seth Norman, E. Donnall Thomas and Pete Fromm and some from so not-so-well-knowns. All are wonderful reads.

    “Zipping My Fly” by Rich Tosches – Just about the time you think he’s going to rattle off a page without a joke, BAM, another joke. I was glad to finish that and start on “Inventing Montana” by Ted Leeson.

    You better send that to me (Leeson) when you are done. I have some books in trade.

    Selective Trout, by Swisher and Richards. Very interesting. Changing my thinking, but I’ll never bring a portable, fly-tying kit to a river.

    An entertaining read was On the Run by David Dibenedetto chronicling his fishing trip down the eastern seaboard following the striper migration.

    A new collection of Harry Middleton stories (previously published in magazines) was just published. It’s “In That Sweet Country” and like anything Harry Middleton wrote, it’s beautifully written and entertaining. You can get it from Little Rivers Fly Shop in Townsend, TN.

    Ok wow, you folks might have my reading mapped out for me for awhile.

    I read My Life was this Big and other True Fishing Stories by Lefty Kreh and ejoyed the heck out of it.

    I am now reading Thomas McGuane’s Ninety-Two in the Shade and enjoying but not as much as Lefty’s book.

    The best winter reading – at paperback prices – are the two volumes of Traver Award winning fiction from Fly Rod & Reel publishing. All the great writers before they were famous.

    I,m reading “LAST DOG ON THE HILL”  by Steve Duno.
    It’s another dog story book.  I fall for them all the time but I can’t stand the endings.
    I’ll get back to fishing stories when I get back from Erie.  Maybe I’ll have some to share with everybody. ::)

    I just found a really old (and great) used fly rodding for bass book from 1946 called BASS FISHING by Jim Gasque. It’s all about stream bass and the fly rod. I never knew there was a book like this from that far back.

    I’m also reading Driving on the Rim by Thomas McGuane. This one’s a new novel, but there’s some fishing scenes in it.

    Can I revive this thread?
    How about “Summer’s Salmon” by A. Rusty Rat.
    I usually read it each winter. Nothing like an “R” rated fly fishing book to warm the frozen soul in winter.
    On a serious note, I am working my way through The Dry Fly by Gary LaFontaine. Next on my list is Tying and Fishing The Riffling Hitch by Art Lee.
