Good Books?

I've searched the archives for fly fishing books and found some good ones that I'll order. My first is Gierach's "Sex, Death, and Fly Fishing". It reviewed well and I guess it is a good place to start. Any other suggestions will be appreciated. Anything with pictures helps me keep the page count up.

If I agreed with you we’d both be wrong.

    Here is a link to a thread I started a few years ago about fishing books:

    That's the one I read. You never know what people might have read between now and then.

    "The Alaska Chronicles" You can get it from KJ's link above - Departure Publishing

    "They say you forget your troubles on a trout stream, but that's not quite it..... you begin to see where your troubles fit into the grand scheme of things, and suddenly they're just not such a big deal anymore."

    Try " Angler Management : The Day I Died While Fly Fishing & Other Stories" by Jack Ohman.
    As a self described "Dry Fly Snob", when you read this book I guarantee you'll find a chapter that you'll say, "Yep - That's me". The chapter - " Spare the rod" is me to a tee. Give it a try.

    A good place to buy books is through Amazon.com.
    I buy many books used from third-party sellers there.
    Put them on your wish list and when you see the used book
    price drop to a good level($1-$2) buy it.
