Default What's in your library?

I'm not sure if I'm the typical fly fisherman but I love to read books about fly fishing when I'm not on the waters. I have several books by Joan Wulff. What do you have?

I guess I'm not like you. I have a lot of websites in my favorites on my computer. I have no fishing books. I might like some though, so thanks for the Christmas or birthday list idea for myself.

I do not have many but a friend a few months back got me From Solid Basics to Advanced Techniques and this year for the holidays a gift came early without a name so I had opened it and inside was The L.L. Bean Ultimate Book of Fly Fishing. Right now my collection is low but I have a feeling since I collect all books, this will shortly change.

I know there are lots of websites that have tons of information, but books are nice when I don't want to turn on a computer or I'm in a place where I don't have access to a computer.

I don't have printed books about either. If I need information and tips about or guides to fishing, I will search on the internet. Though, I have an ebook titled Fishing Mastery which actually a compiled fishing articles.

What did you think about Joan Wulff's book From Solid Basics to Advanced Techniques? I love her books. She also has some videos on fly fishing that I've watched and found very valuable.

Books, where do I start, I have around two hundred of them.
I prefer to read the books from the forgotten eras of fishing, their hints and tips have helped no end and they are in Plain English not modern technobabble. No signs of Dog-knobblers, Cats Whiskers or Lures of any kind, just paatterns and methods that catch fish.
I would recommend two books to anyone starting out. An insect recognition guide and a fly bible - like Thomas and Bray's Stillwater Fly Swotter, ISBN 1-85310-907-X. Its pocket sized and gives you a pattern equivalent for each type of insect, how to fish it and a month by month breakdown of what Trout are eating in general.
