Books & DVD’s

Gary Gale, Librarian

The GBF library continues to grow its impressive collection of DVDs,  books and back issues of California Fly Fisher. Be sure to check our our library at the next meeting, located at the back of the room.

Our Library is open only to GBF Members.  All Books and Videos have been assigned a library number. Duplicates are for sale at our general meetings, and some seldom-checked out books are given away free.

To check out a Book or Video, bring it to the Librarian, who will check your GBF membership status, pull the library card for that item, and log your name and date checked out.  You may check out up to 2 items until the next general meeting.  We depend on the members to keep all Books and videos in circulation.  When you return the material, your name will be scratched off the library card.

No new material may be checked out until you return what you have outstanding.

Happy Reading + Viewing!
Gary Gale – GBF Librarian

New Items
The Library recently acquired 3 fly fishing DVDs that are worth watching.

1. “Wet Fly Ways with Davy Wotton” is a 2 hour introduction to traditional wet fly fishing. It demonstrates, among other things, different presentation techniques, when to use a floating or intermediate fly line, how to configure the flies on your line and how to tie special knots. All this and they catch some nice fish, too!

2. “Chuck Echer’s October Caddis (using a Paraloop “V” Hackle Technique)” is a non-commercial video created by a local fly fisherman from Pollock Pines.This video provides a brief history of tying caddis flies before demonstrating how to tie the fly and what materials work best.

3. Bass Blast – Vol. 1 is a fairly short 49 minute video that focuses on targeting largemouth bass in shallow water habitat, whether by stalking along the shore or using a pram. More fish are caught – per minute – on this video than the previous two videos combined.
