Introduction & Terms

"" This started out as a simple list of books that I had read and was recommending to other people with similar interests. Then I added descriptions for some of my favorites. Next it was books that looked interesting or were special requests by visitors to my site. And so on.. and so on...

Fishing and boating are great sports and Florida offers special opportunities and special challenges for people who engage in them here. Flyfishing for tarpon on the flats is a very different activity form flyfishing for trout in a mountain stream. All of the books listed here are selected because I hope they are relevant to Florida  species and conditions.

If you see a description of a book here it is because I own and/or have read it. Please remember, I'm not writing professional reviews, just giving my personal opinions. When I have the time, I will do searches to find new (NEW->)books that appear to be on topic.  I will also occasionally list books of interest that are not available on line from Amazon. If I haven't read these books, I will simply list them for your information and maybe order a copy for myself. (I will use "Notes:"  to identify information from sources other than myself such as published reviews.)

The books are listed in no special order so you will just have to browse through the lists. Some books may be on more than one list and some others probably should be. If you are looking for something special, please let me know and I will try to help. has just opened their new video store.

As Amazon continues to expand I will try to add new sections where appropriate.

Most Amazon books and tapes are offered at 20% to 30% off retail. (Many of the older fishing books are special order which may have a lower discount.)
