Trout Hunting – The Pursuit of Happiness
Bob hails from the US and now lives in Scotland. This is one of the most enjoyable reads about trout fishing that I have ever read, with some fantastic methods and imitations. This book is a must have (why hasn’t Bob written 100’s of books?)

Another angling Bible. Famous for his Killer Bug and Pheasant Tail Nymphs this chap was an angling genious.

Simply a stunning book and really feeds your fishing brain.
