For those times that the avid fly fisher is not on the water, here are some treasures to guide their reading, or fuel their reflection -- all donated by Paul and Mary Ann Ford. Featured books include bibliographies and auction catalogs as well as a "coffee table" style book featuring the contemporary masters of fly fishing art.

Featured art includes a piece of driftwood carved by Bill Marts, Steelhead Flies from the Wenatchee River (1997), and The Spirit Fly, created by Syd Glasso, mounted and framed by Art Lingren, giving in memory of Ron Grantham, by his wife, Diane. 

Enjoy!
