Whenever I pursue a new endeavor, I read about anything I can get my hands on. Here's a list of some of the books I have in my collection and have enjoyed:
- My Life in Fishing, by Stu Apte. Fantastic stories about an amazing life. He was a fighter jet pilot, commercial airlines pilot, and professional guide, and set a ton of fly fishing records.
- The Longest Silence, Thomas McGuane. An introspective book more about the "why" of fishing than the how.
- Trout Masters Too, Jerald Horst. Specific to speckled trout fishing in Louisiana.
