SHFC – Where’s My Book?

If you have not yet received your pre-ordered copy (or copies) of Single-Handed Fly Casting and are wondering about your book’s whereabouts, there are three possibilities:

  1. It is on a truck or airplane heading your way (though you should hopefully know that by now via email).
  2. It is in my garage, either in a box or on an eight-foot table, where the book(s) will soon be signed and packed.
  3. It is on a pallet lurking in a local warehouse here—but not for long.

All the pre-ordered A/P copies and all the pre-ordered multi-copy orders (A/P or otherwise) should be out by mid-week. are shipped. I am now boring down through the rest of the list, getting reserved numbers out ASAP, with all the rest to follow. Guessing about two weeks to get fully caught up.

If you recently ordered (say, after the books arrived here in July), your order will be processed as soon as the pre-orders are out the door.

Once I’m caught up on everything, I’ll post here and on Facebook to be sure that no one on the pre-order list was missed somehow.

I appreciate everyone’s on-going patience with the process, and books should be in everyone’s hands shortly.

SFHC Review – The Loop

Another review of Single-Handed Fly Casting is in, this time from the “The Loop,” which is the casting instructor journal of Fly Fishers International. The review itself is behind a password wall, but here are some key bits:

We at The Loop have anticipated Jason Borger’s newest fly-casting tome, Single-Handed Fly Casting, for a year or more now … We can tell you the wait was worth it.

The book builds on Borger’s Modular Casting concept and provides casters with vivid explanations and line drawings in what we think is a very logical progression … All of this in Borger’s direct writing style, which is at times very detailed, but with an ounce of humor tossed in to take the edge off. The author makes all this fun.

The information one can glean from the line drawings themselves is worth the cost of the book. Good job, Jason.

I’m really pleased to see that it struck a chord in the instructor community. The book was written in part for those who teach fly casting, and I hope it serves as another useful resource for my fellow instructors.

SHFC Update – An Extra Bit

So let’s say you pony up the bucks and buy a copy of Single-Handed Fly Casting. What do you get for your hard-earned cash? A bunch of paper, for starters. Some ink. Several decades of fly casting instruction experience and research (with actual scientist types). And lots of drawings of me. You also get one of these included (look above), because I have about a thousand of them lying around and they make tying benches look prettier! 😉

A few friends in the EU may recognize this general graphic as something from a fly show a few years ago. If you can’t recycle yourself, who can you recycle, right?
