Currently reading: Cutthroat & Campfire Tales

Cutthroat & Campfire Tales: The Fly-fishing Heritage of West by John H. Monnett (University Press of Colorado) is a delightful book on the history of fly fishing from the Rocky Mountain perspective.  Wonderfully easy to read with chapters that are just the right length, John Monnett treats the reader to the colorful antics of western fly fisherman from a variety of vantage points.  Each chapter stands alone and is a joy to read unto itself.  The greatest aspect of the book is the manner in which John seamlessly threads the history of western fly fishing into the broader tapestry of East Coast and European fly fishing history.
