Some would say cursed (my kids) by the afflictions of always on time (actually early) and Semper Paratus…I am often arriving early to meetings and killing time sitting in the rig or as I have come to do…wandering a bookstore. Recently, I was killing time in Medford, Oregon at a Barnes & Noble and came across a book that begged the question ‘how many variations of a chironomid/midge can there possibly be to warrant a sizeable book?’ Apparently many. Sorry for the cell phone blur…but you get the idea…

The book has a nice layout and covers every conceivable variation of chironomid, midge, buzzer, gnat…. you are bound to find something new to experiment with…I did. I did not spring, but given the detail and thoroughness of the book, it is worth the price (I won’t quote, given the various resources out there to acquire books in the store or online).
