Ted Leeson's "The Habit of Rivers" is a series of short stories similar to Gierach. VERY good IMO. One of the stories had me crying I was laughing so hard.
Thomas McGuane - The Longest Silence and Ninety-two in the Shade. Also, I believe he has a new one out now that revolves around fly fishing.
Here are a few I have enjoyed-some novels some non-fiction. Dark Waters by Russell Chatham, Blue Lines by Tom Reed, Galatin Canyon and Inventing Montana by Ted Leeson, River Music by James Babb, and Home Pool by Bruce Ducker. Even though not directly about fly fishing, the whole series of novels by Ivan Doig about Montana is excellent, especially if you spend time fishing in Montana as you will learn a lot of the area history! There were a few recommended here I haven't read and look forward to reading! Thanks, Rick
i did a post several years ago on a bunch of books so i wont repeat . any book by scott waldie, john holt, john barshness, or galligan is worth reading. also paul arnolds wisdom of the guides is good. mike w
Try "Snowfly" by Joseph Heywood....I promise you won't be able to put it down. I'd send you my copy but it has passed through so many fly fishermen that I don't know where it is now. It is about the search for a hatch of giant white mayflies that bring the monster fish in the stream up to feed.....
