Nilo has been busy listing even more. There are milk crates of books in storage that have been donated over the years. From what I can guess there are probably a thousand, or so, books. Sitting in storage does no good for our coffers, or your library.

The plan is to sell the books and have the proceeds go into the Texas FlyFishers' funds, directly befitting our club, and you.
