Double Hitch

It’s tying season here on the northern 45th parallel, so here’s something for the tyers who follow this blog. A little video on the Double Hitch knot, a skill that I learned as a young kid as part of my tying education. It’s versatile and easy and has served me well for decades. Worth dropping into your tying repertoire as an addition to the whip finish, and so on.

BTW–This video is many years old, so forgive the old school 4:3 aspect ratio and the render quality.

Sundance for ARRTI – November 10

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.

SHFC Review – Sexyloops.com Again

Another review of SHFC (this time from Lars Chr. Bentsen) at sexyloops.com. Lars sums it up like this:

…if you find yourself “left in a place that’s full of movement with speed, but not much in the way of mental and physical direction”, this book will help you find a path!

Thanks, Lars! Truly pleased that you found the book to speak to you at that level!

About PayPal Orders

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.

A Good “River Runs” Read

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.
