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 or viewed, and due to that fact, may not appear weekly.
Book Review by Neil M. Travis
Tomorrow’s Fish is a short, 202 page, self-published volume of fly fishing stories with accompanying fly patterns. The stories, 24 in all, are 2 or 3 pages long, followed by a fly pattern that was mentioned in the story. The stories are personal memories of the author and insightful observations on fly fishing in theory and practice.
What makes this little book different than similar books are the inclusion of the fly patterns and how to dress them. These are basic, simple patterns that would be a useful addition to most fly fishers’ collection of patterns. There is a picture of each fly and a list of the materials needed to tie it.
Tomorrow’s Fish is a quick read, a great book to take to bed, or to enjoy during an afternoon along your favorite stream or lake before an evening of angling.
