The number of books about Fly Fishing waiting to be read is exceeded only by the number of trout waiting to be caught. I focus on the latter. But Scott and I, along with anyone who'd like to contribute will toss out some 'read's we have enjoyed

Jurassic Trout - A hoot of a fishing story

Murial Foster's Fishing Diary - I tracked this down after reading about it in one of John Gierach's books - I believe it was talked about in 'At the Grave of the Unknown Fisherman'. It's an incredible work of Art. If you are in town, you can sometimes get it at the Epilogue book Company. Or ask them to track down a copy for you. I've given away at least 5 copies as gifts, even though it is long out of print and hard to find. -Cutthroat

The Curtis Creek Manefesto - The first book I used to learn how to fly-fish, and still my favorite! - Cutthroat

"In our family, there was no clear line between religion and fly fishing. We lived at the junction of great trout rivers in western Montana , and our father was a Presbyterian minister and a fly fisherman who tied his own flies and taught others. He told us about Christ's disciples being fishermen, and we were to assume, as my brother and I did, that all first-class fishermen on the Sea of Galilee were fly fishermen and that John, the favorite, was a dry-fly fisherman."
