Reading and enjoying Brian Clarke's The Pursuit of Stillwater Trout at the moment. A free flowing writer and thoughtfull. He was coauther with Goddard of theirclassic. Another would be Wyatt's What Trout Want and Pat O'Reilly's Tacktical Fly Fishing his river and stream one is very good.

Somewhere else is a really good book. At the loch of the green Corrie is one I always recommend, its about fishing and Norman McCaig and the assynt area. Its not strictly a fishing book but it struck a chord with me.
All day we fished
And caught trout and
Invisible treasures

We walked home, ragged millionaires
