    Just finished reading an old book "The Coming of the Pond Fishes" by Ben Hur Lampman. Really enjoyed it and thought I would pass it along. Its about the first releases of warm water fish in Washington and Oregon. The publishing date is 1946 so a good one to look for on E-bay or old library sales.......

    I'm going to have to look that one up.


    Another hard-to-find small book I like is "Lake Fly Fishing Guide" by Jim Bradbury and Barbara Miller. It gives really specific advice on where/when and how to fish in the Oregon Cascades.

    I was just given an old book that is really cool. My ex-sister-in-law collects books. She thought I'd like the 1952 edition of "The Book of Fishes" by the National Geographic Society, since i was born in 1950. She was right! The book is awesome! Lots of old photos and excellent artistry with the color plates of the fish species.

    I picked up a copy of that as well just for the prints! Some really cool stuff in there, its entertaining to read through and read the fisheries management practices of the day too.
