    Thanks Big E, Great..... now I'll be reading instead of tying, probably a good thing. I remember checking out The Complete Angler from the public library many years ago and actually read the whole thing, wasn't easy, as I recall!

    Eunan, nice !!!! I really need to get a few more books, I only have Classic Salmon Flies be Mikael Frodin, not the best book, but has a good number of patterns.

    The "Pacific Coast" book--is it a Sunset book by Ray Cannon? If so, I have it too, but a 1976 ed., tenth printing paperback. I too occasionally peruse the Sporting sections in used book stores and pick up cheap stuff. Still waiting to find those Haig-Browns.

    Frodin is good, only for the patterns. I'm not a fan of the flies in it, and quickly sold mine when i got the new Mike Radencich book with 1700 patterns. Though some of the pics are very modern interpretations of the flies (big hooks, married wings, vs small hooks, mixed wings as intended in the original literature) the quality and quantity of patterns i worth the $50 on amazon!!

    Of course, its hard to beat the originals, which can be downloaded for free...some blogs ;) even have links to most of the texts!!!

    That is the one, this one is a first edition i found in an antique shop in Oregon for 2 or 3 bucks. I have also found in the used book stores if you go to the science sections sometimes the fishing books get stuffed in there. I found a couple of books on Nymphing from the 80s that way.

    Yeah, I've always used it (Frodin) for the receipts and looked online for other examples. I really do need to expand my book collection, would probably give me some much needed inspiration.
