I use iBooks often. Smashwords.com is good. For a lot of public domain books, look at feedbooks.com or Gutenberg.org

Hey, I got one for ya. Available at most ebook retailers for free. Ballads from an unlucky fisherman by Lenny Everton. Poetry and the one called tackle box is quite humorous and I think most of us can relate. Another quick, curious free read is catfish & fish-cat by Michael allender.

Welcome to the group Matt. Presently in the middle of my 2nd John Gierach book these days .Wife and sister -in-law Christmas presents :'No shortage of Good Days' is a multi species fly rod account like a Diary and has some clever humor in its delivery .Ya gotta sift through for good tips you may never use if your home waters or likely possible trips  don't apply however. It's a nice read nevertheless even if I don't get to fish the Colorado small waters as expressed in told in 'Fly Fishing Small Streams', which I read first .

That old ORVIS book has my eye !

Comment by James Feasel on December 6, 2014 at 12:33pm
Got another one by the Scottish guy titled Lines in Pleasant Places. I load a lot of books onto my phone for easy access entertainment. Read some sitting in a tree stand this fall. Sometimes titles hint of fish or fishing, and turn out not to be so. Easier to load and start reading instead of further research. Currently reading the Determined Angler and the Brook Trout. Others loaded and waiting: Recreations of Christopher North vol 1, Favorite Fish and Fishing, Fisherman's Luck and Other Uncertain Things, Angling Sketches, Jim Spurling Fisherman, the Cornish Fisherman's Watch Night and the River's End. This last title had no fishing connection, but was somewhat entertaining----same guy who wrote the Grizzly King which later became the movie--the Bear---1980 something.

Hey Jimvision! Which Seven Titles did you get ? A bucket list item is to fish Scotland someday .Visited Scotland once and want to go back.
