A real treasure brother Greg and I found at the Catskill Fly Fishing Museum in Roscoe NY.

 I have a Revised edition of 'Trout Fishing' I am gonna re read.  I was glad to see several references to Edward Ringwood Hewitt , another Fly Fishing Pioneer , in Joe Brooks' ,'Trout Fishing ' . I have a blog on Hewitt that I will re-post after adding some of Joe Brooks references . I constantly add to this blog the more I learn about Hewitt's importance to the development of Fly Fishing.

A wealth of Fishing knowledge with many contributors! My favorite Fishing Book .

Recently read American Notes by Rudyard Kipling. Not really a fishing book, but has a chapter about salmon fishing--late 1800's western US as experienced by Mr Kipling. It is always a nice surprise to find a fishing story hidden in a book not about fishing.

Looking forward to reading them James.Another free book i  downloaded on the Kindle is,'The Essential Trout Fishing Guide'.

Comment by James Feasel on July 17, 2016 at 11:12am

Tales of Fishes is a good book. Would be really cool to have enough money to enjoy that kind of life. The Determined Angler is interesting being so old. It is not necessarily an easy read.

Glad you liked James I enjoyed the first four chapters(stories) .Zane Grey lived not too far from me .I want to fish the Lackawaxen creek now.Good luck with your book !

Comment by James Feasel on June 8, 2016 at 11:12am

That is a good read John.

I published an ebook about pet loss called My Boney Girl. If all our relationships were like the relationships we have with our fishing friends and pets, the world would be a nearly perfect place.
