Charles B. Wood III was born in 1936 and has fly-fished since the age of ten. A graduate of Trinity College, Hartford, and the University of Pennsylvania, he has run his own rare book business, specializing in architecture, the arts, and related subjects. Although he does not deal in angling books, he has published several collectors’ items, all on the subject of salmon fishing. The thrill of the chase, in book dealing, book collecting, and salmon fishing, is what keeps him engaged.
