Pat McMannus, does he count as a fishing writer? He's my favorite all time author.

Stan Fagerstrom - Catch More Bass and Catch More Crappie. He does alot of articles and he knows more about old lures than all of us and ways to tweak them. The man also knows how to cast, no matter what type.

The Lindners - Whether In-fisherman or Angling Edge

C. Boyd Pfeiffer - Mr. Tackle tinkerer and excellent fisherman, Tackle Craft and its updated version is filled with great information.

Uncle Homer (Circle) - Great Articles and very down to earth. Still love watching "BigMouth" and seeing him doing the fishing for it.

And there's a whole lot more. Check out Internet Archieve and even Google Books you'll be surprised at what you find.

Agree with other posts, but if you have never read Gordon McQuarrie you need to give him a try. He passed away years ago, but his stories are contained in several "Stories of the Old Duck Hunters, Inc" books. He wrote both fishing and hunting stories and they are very entertaining. The Old Duck Hunters consisted of him and is Father in Law and the stunts they pulled on each other would male a dog laugh. My wife forbade me from reading them in bed because I would bust out laughing and wake her up.
Also Havilah Babcock, John Gierach, Corey Ford and Jim Casada.
Some you guys posted I have not heard of, but I am going to check them out, I love to read.
Good post, by the way.

SeaRay, you left out Ed Zern. I love your selection especially Havilah Babcock, of course we're telling our age and many hear might never have heard of 'em.

Another group of writers I enjoy is the forum members here as they write about our local.
