If you like the Tapply mysteries then you will probably like the series by John Galligan:

The Nail Knot
The Blood Knot
The Clinch Knot
The Wind Knot (to be released later this year)


A Hunter's Fireside Book: Tales of Dogs, Duck's, Bird's and Guns by Gene Hill
Anything by Michael McIntosh
A Hunter's Book of Days by Charles Fergus
A Hunter's Road by Jim Fergus
Can a person really have too many fly rods?

'Neversink' by Leonard Wright is highly insightful as well as engaging.
'Bright Rivers' by Nick Lyons. I like Tom Rosenbauer's educational writings.
And of course, 'The Compleat McLane' by A.J. McLane. A classic.

I'm a huge fan of Tappley. Never read any of his mysteries, but I'll have to pick one up on my next trip to the library. I'll have to try out Galligan too--thanks nhmacusr.

M.R. Montgomery's The Way of the Trout is good too, I thought.

Though his books aren't about fly fishing I really enjoy Howard Frank Mosher. The 2 novels of his I have read have some fly-fishing-obsessed characters in them, including a judge who wears his waders under his robe in the courtroom so he can get out in time for the evening hatch. To paraphrase one of Mosher's characters, he "is a guy I would bring brook trout fishing with me any time."

Default My favorites.

Fisherman's Luck by Henry Van Dyke.

Days Off by Henry Van Dyke.

Van Dyke was a fishing buddy of Grover Cleveland.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned,

Fishing "The Big Three" by John Underwood and Ted Williams.

An old gem: "Thy Rod and thy Creel" by Odell shepard.

I can't believe the original anthology "Seasons of the Angler" has escaped notice. This mid 1980's book edited by NH native David Seybold has some of the best short stories I have ever read, including 'The Native' ; 'The Dead Man of Wendigo Brook'; 'Epstein's Conversion'; and the hilarous 'A Fly Fishing Primer' by P.J. O'Rourke. Definitely worth seeking out.
