I will have to echo Brian on both counts. I love Gierach books and Tout Bum is a great starter. You can turn to any chapter and start reading. I was thinking while reading the earlier posts about the "Other Stories" that follow A River Runs Through It and how I associeate them with fly fishing stories. I love USFS 1919: The Ranger, The Cook, and the Hole in the Sky. A book that I recently finished is Our Southern Highlanders by Horace Kephart. It is strange to me to read a description of a place I know from 100 years ago. Any Thoughts?
This is a great topic. The next best thing to fishing is reading about it!!
