17 Books for People Who Fish

The world of fishing has been blessed over the years with some fine writers among its ranks. Obviously Ernest Hemingway comes to mind, but there have been many others as well. Having a good library of fishing material is a great way to survive long stretches of winter, get inspired for future trips, and just to let the mind wander. Here are some suggestions if you’re looking to stock up or get a gift for someone hooked on the sport.
