Vic McCristal books

Post by Mad Mullet » Mon Sep 07, 2009 7:50 pm

Hi all

Can anyone please help me out by providing me with a list of the books written by Vic McCristal?
I believe there were 8 in total and I have 5, just looking to locate copies of the other three.
Any help appreciated.

Cheers
Dave

The two I have are:

- Practical Fishing with Lures (1979)
- Great Fishing with Lures (1970)

Both awesome books - I'd love to hear what the others are!

I just got a copy of Practical Fishing With Lures and so far it shaping up to be a great read.I'll have to keep my eyes out for the others.

Another little paperback from 1974 called Vic McCristals Fishing Tackle (doesn't show who the author is??)

Only being picky,but I hate it when book publishers do that.

Cheers,Jim
