Via Moldy Chum. Just watch (as long as it will remain up).
Looks like I’ll be up at Sundance Mountain Resort November 10-11 to be a part of the 25th anniversary celebration of A River Runs Through It. Planning on doing some casting and a bit of storytelling from days on the set. I’ll even have a few copies of SHFC floating around. If you’re in the neighborhood at that time, come on up and say hello.
Another review of SHFC (this time from Lars Chr Bentsen) at sexyloops.com. My favorite line is the opener:
“So why do I like Jason’s new book? Becasue it’s the best – ever. Have a great weekend, folks :-).”
Thanks, Lars! Truly pleased that you found the book to speak to you at that level!
So, I’ve gotten some emails concerning PayPal and SHFC book order/tee order confirmation. The issue revolves around a PayPal receipt, but no apparent response in terms of direct verification of an order from Fish, Flies & Water (FF&W).
Once a PayPal order is placed, it is processed on direct behalf of my LLC, and it is much as if you are ordering directly from FF&W. The order comes to FF&W immediately via email and is also stored on PayPal’s servers within the LLC account. Unfortuntaly, PayPal doesn’t allow for the direct generatation of a secondary cofirmation email. So, if you order a copy of SHFC or a tee and PayPal says you ordered, it should be a confirmation that things are good.
If you do have a question or concern though, feel free to contact me and ask about your book or tee.
The 25th anniversary of the film, A River Runs Through It, is coming up shortly (October 9). Below is a link to a good read about some aspects of the film’s pre-production/production and post-release influences. I’ll be posting a few memories of my own related to the fly-fishing scenes closer to the anniversary date.
If you ordered a copy of Single-Handed Fly Casting up through yesterday, all the books are signed and sealed and will soon be sent for delivery. I should, at very long last, be totally caught up on everything book-related by the weekend.
The two latest reviews for Single-Handed Fly Casting appeared over the extended (for the USA) weekend. The first is from Aitor Coterón at onemorelastcast.net, the other is from Paul Arden at the one-and-only sexyloops.com.
And full disclosure here: Aitor Coterón was one of my go-to guys for English-as-a-second-language proofing/feedback. Fluent ESL readers often see things that might get missed otherwise, and can provide a reality check for instructions. But…that doesn’t mean Aitor necessarily thought I had truly written a solid book. At least I know for sure now! As for Paul, well, I’ve known Paul for a long time. He’s a friend, but he’s also someone who I expect to speak his mind and not put his reputation on the line with some sort of puff-ball review. I’m just really pleased that he found the text to speak so strongly to him and I hope it will continue to do so in the long term.
So, an SHFC shipping update as of early morning, August 31:
I am in the process of having *all* remaining USA books packed and ready to ship (or already shipped) by the end of the Labor Day weekend. That’s everyone who pre-ordered/ordered through yesterday, August 30.
Next week (that’s after September 4, *all* NON-USA books will be packed and ready to ship (or already shipped). That’s everyone who pre-ordered/ordered through yesterday, August 30.
So, by next weekend (that’s September 9-10) *all* SHFC books ordered through August 30, 2017 will either be packed for shipping, or already be on the way.
My sincere thanks to everyone who pre-ordered/ordered a copy of SHFC. Your patience has been deeply appreciated, and I truly hope that each of you finds the informative quality of the book to be worth the wait.
