Thanks for all the responses, never thought this topic would take off so fast. I may pick up the Trout Bum tomorrow if I get time to stop by the local fly shop.
Keep em comin! I'll compile myself a list!
....how about something geared straight towards small mouth fishing? I know most folks here chase trout mostly as do I but I love them smallmouth My local shop has that Clouser book about smallmouths autographed as well.
