The River Why? by David James Duncan. One of my all time favorites, fishing or otherwise.True Love and the Woolly Bugger by Dave Ames is a good light read.

I would recommend one of David James Duncan's good friends Thomas McGuane and "the Longest Silence"

Well then you should have plenty of time to read the 10 pages of intellectual gibberish in the Reads thread.

Great literary achievements they are not, but consider the following for fun, fast reads that will make you long to be on the water: "On the Run: An Angler's Journey down the Striper Coast" by David DiBenedetto [/img]ist on the River: An Angler's Quest for Steelhead" by Michael Checchio - Cheesy title, but nice relaxing read.Personally, I think any LaFontaine book is entertaining (I sincerely mourn his passing, even though I never met the man). Ditto on David Hughes books.Also, I have become a fan of anthologies, especially for travelling - I understand "Homewaters" is very good although I have not yet had the pleasure of reading it. Ursus

The Offbeat Angler by Christopher Arelt and Sebastian O'Kelly.Why? Because I'm one of the authors and for each book sold (list price -- $18.95), I receive 95 cents from the publisher. Plus I get some strange internal satisfaction when someone buys it and says they like it. It's that awful feel good mushy stuff that my old man tried to beat out of me as a kid but never fully succeeded. You can read some reviews by others if you'd like. There are rumors that parts of it might show up in the next issue of The Drake. ... 0310a.html ... ngler.html
