Since Single-Handed Fly Casting is just about to go to plates (for printing), I figured I’d post a public thanks to all who influenced its creation (basically a copy/paste from the Acknowledgements page).

There are many people who should be recognized for their help in seeing this project through to completion. This book has been a huge amount of work, and those listed here have made the process both easier and better all around.
My wife, Kelley, and my daughter, Brooke, who both provided deep inspiration.
Dr. Tim Mccue and Dr. Michael Hahn, for 3-D and the Fly Casting Institute.
Dr. Grunde Løvoll, for answers at 500 frames-per-second (and a second set of eyes).
Aitor Coterón, for slow-mo video that makes for fast myth busting (and a third set of eyes).
Paul Arden, Mac Brown, Simon Gawesworth, Mathias Lilleheim, Dr. Noel Perkins, Steve Rajeff, Bruce Richards, Dr. Server Sadik, and Walter Simbirski. Each of you provided some form of input, invention, and/or knowledge.
David Lambert, for the much needed and much appreciated last-second fixes.
There are also four gear companies that provided material support to this effort. A special thanks to C.F. Burkheimer Fly Rod Co., COAST Products, Cortland Line, and Vosseler.
