RE:Xmas presents?

I got Tabory's <i>Guide to Saltwater Baitfish and their Imitations</i> as a stocking stuffer (small book). He offers a decent survey of "bread and butter" baits and a fair to middling fly recipe collection.

I think Tabory places too much emphasis on fly selection. My experience suggests presentation is more important. Despite this, there are some gems of information found here..... One small example: we tend to spend a lot of time studying how a fly looks from the side, but 80% of the time fish hit a fly from behind or just off the beam. Goes hand in hand with my theory that some flies are meant to get the attention of other fishermen, not fish
