Default Gunnerman books

Don't know if people are aware of Carol Barnes' bookshop. Good stuff, nice lady. I used to train dogs with her now deceased husband, Larry.

Ditto Harold. I have a perpetual dream of running across a mint "Starlight Creek Anglers Society" by Harry Middleton for a buck at a used book store.

I have all of Harry’s books including a mint copy of Starlight Creek Angling Society. I don’t know what it sells for today but my copy was near $1k.
