Individual taste in books varies as much as the favorite rod
or fly. With that in mind, we hope to review books and
videos from the ever-growing fly fishing world, and share
them with you. Books will be the best of all worlds, new
and old. Many of the old books are now available in reprint,
and the wisdom contained is timely today. Others can be
found in second-hand book stores, or by mail order dealers.
As we find videos we feel are outstanding they will be included.
Be assured, reviews are based on what we have actually read,
and due to that fact, may not appear weekly.

If you've missed seeing new
Mike Croft cartoons on Fly Anglers On Line
there is a good reason for it! Our resident
cartoonist has been taking a well-deserved break after
months of working on THIS BOOK!
We hope he has chased all the fish in the South
Puget Sound, and landed most of them.
For those who have wondered,
the person in Mike's cartoons is Mike! As is the
prime character in this glorious book. It is
a delight to read and the information is great.
Mike's marvelous sense of humor allows him to
present real information needed to succeed
fishing stillwaters in an unforgetable manner.
This is not a beginners book.
It says on the cover, "An Illustrated Manual On
Stillwater Tactics For the Intermediate Fly
Angler." He does show, illustrate, what one
should take stillwater fishing, where to find
the fish, and how to overcome one's "Fear of
Frog Water." All illustrated in Mike's unique
style. If you like the book covers, just
wait until you get inside!
Mike has worked on this for
a long time, it shows. It is outstanding, and we hope he
gets filthy rich on it so he can go fishing
anywhere he wants. Congradulations Mike, well
This is a Softbound book,
priced at $14.95. If you fish stillwater anywhere,
you would pay double the price for the tips and
hints alone. And besides that, the cartoons are
priceless! ~ DB
And, J Castwell says... "( and ya know
how I HATE to be nice); BUY IT, BUY IT, BUY IT! The old goat
needs the money for crayons!!! ('sides, we fish together sometimes.)
(And now, he owes me ten bucks!)"~JC
