Some of My Fishing Books

Fishing Books

When I lived in New York City, I always found solace in fly fishing for trout in the Catskills, mostly on the Beaverkill River.

A New York bookstore was another place to find solace. My favorites were Scribner’s, Rizzoli, Shakespeare, Strand, Coliseum, Barnes and Noble and McGraw-Hill. I always looked for fishing books. After baseball, fishing seemed to produce the most titles. Over the years, I accumulated many. Here are a couple of them:
