I just finished reading a book by Dave Karczynski & Tim Landwehr titled, "Smallmouth: Modern Fly Fishing Methods, Tactics, and Techniques". I highly recommend it for anyone wanting to pick up knowledge of fly fishing for smallies Definitely a good read.

Rich, two quality booths across from each other could cause a traffic jam. 

Rob, this is the book to buy if you want to improve your chances at catching fish. I am still researching for my book, which would be more for entertainment than anything else. It would be called, "River Dance and Other Oddities of Riverine  Origin". With your blessings I would like to include a photo of you with an Asian carp Double on an arrow. Is there a proper name for that?

Tim Holschlag?

John, can you compare it to Holschlag's book?

I believe Rich meant Tim Landwehr being he coauthored the book with Dave.

Being I have not read Tim  Holschlag's book I cannot compare the two. I can say that this book's main focus is on methods, tactics, techniques, and fly types for fishing the three columns of water (surface, middle, and  lower) under different conditions and seasons. It also spends some time discussing where to find the fish in different situations. The book has a mid-western  feel to it. There are contributions by Luke Kavajecz, Nate Sipple, Kyle Zempel, Bart Landwehr, Tom Anderson, KIp Vieth, and Captain Austin Adduci. It also includes good interviews with Chuck Kraft, Lefty Kreh, Larry Dahlberg, and Mike Schultz,

Sounds like a winner to me.   I own both Holschlag's and Bob Clouser's book on flyfishing for smallmouth so eventually I'll be able to give you a comparison.

I'm only 1/3 thru the new book, but I'll give you a hint, I'm going to need a new highlighter because there are a ton of little gems to be found on almost every page.  Very useful and detailed information with this one.
