Anything written by Norman Maclean

a favorite quote (from A River Runs Through It)

"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 left 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."

The River Why by David James Duncan, Big Two Hearted River by Ernest Hemingway. I will also second True Love and the Woolly Bugger. Also James Prosac has good books Early love and Brook trout is one. The Snow Fly is also a good book, can't remember the author right now. A River Never Sleeps isn't bad either.

I concur on all Weatherell's stuff--especially since it's local. Try Jim Harrison and Thomas McGuane, also. Russell Chatham, a painter, has an early book that's good--I forget the name. There's a book called Brook Trout and the Writing Life that's a slim volume, but good. Tapply has a bunch of books that were (mostly) his collected back of the magazine essays that are good--also, about 65% local waters. And don't forget Nick Lyons--he has a collected works.

JD Wetherell is great as I have read most of this books (on fly fishing).

I might also add Bill Tapply who unfortuantely, just past away this year. His most recent book -Dark Tiger is both a flyfishing and murder mystery. Google William Tapply and you will find a ton of his books. His writing style is easy and goes to your core in terms of being an outdoorsman. Highly recommend him.

Spring Creek by Nick Lyons for some guidance on technical fishing for tough trout.

Hey, its cold down here in FL. The largemouth and gators are hibernating in Lake Seminole. But its not as cold as it is up there.
