Default Favourite book...

Probably been done to death, and yet I can't find a thread on people's favourite fishing books. The reason I ask is because I'm after purchasing some new reading material. A few favourites of mine, in no particular order are:

- chub & dace (John bailey)
- the secret carp (Chris Yates)
- king carp waters (Chris ball)
- confessions of a carp fisher (BB)
- a passion for angling (Yates and James)
- the deepening pool (Chris Yates)
- how to fish (Chris Yates)
- out of the blue (you guessed it)

And finally but most certainly not least, as I think it's an excellent book...

- the accidental angler (Charles rangeley Wilson)

Well you seem to be missing my favourite Chris Yates book Jim:

Casting At The sun

If you haven't read it you should.

I can highly recommend Clive Gammon's 'I Know a Good Place' and Richard Walker's 'Stillwater Angling'. Both dropped off the radar for younger anglers, but essential reading a few years ago and still well worth seeking out.

Mine has to be the original Mr Crabtree Goes Fishing. That had such an influence on me as a kid, wonderful book.

Had to settle for the 1970s orange coloured reprint but, yep, should have mentioned that too!!! Good call.

For sentimental reasons my first angling book birthday present, 'Angling in earnest' (Fred Taylor) 1958. Still in good nick although the dust cover's showing a crease or three.
