Some Items For That "List"
Christmas 2012, it doesn't feel much like it this last week of August with the exception of this fresh hot brewed Nantucket coffee beside me waiting to do its work. But Christmas Eve is just four months from today and I have a few ideas for your gift list.
Here are a couple of good books that I feel would make a fine gift, either for yourself or for someone on your list.
The first book is Fishing, Ghosts, and my Mother's Gray Hair, by Mark Kautz. Some of Mark's tales and experiences as told by him in a wonderful way that only Mark can tell.
Mark runs a fine blog, "Northern California Trout" and the book can be purchased at is blog.
The second is "Adirondack Flies" by J.P. Ross. This a fine book of flies from this region, with great color photos of the patterns. The patterns are old favorites and some created by Ross. This book can be purchased at his web site, http://www.jprossflyrods.com/
These are a few variations of a Ross fly pattern. I have not fished them, except for the yellow bodied one which produced a brown for me. I will fish these more as the cooler waters of autumn arrive.
