Those are the second, third, and fourth paragraphs of Chapter One of Single-Handed Fly Casting. The book is very much focused on the human aspect (as it should be), but I wanted to start off by setting that tone clearly. I think many casters get overly concerned about gear (hey, I love gear, too), but the gear can’t do much all by itself.
My current book project, Single-Handed Fly Casting, is in the photo and editing stages right now. There will be 1,001 hardcover copies, signed and numbered. There are currently no plans for a softcover edition.
I am taking pre-pre-orders for the book now. If you want to get in line for the actual pre-order (which will require actual money), either leave a comment below or send me an email. Those who sign up for the “pre-pre” will get the chance to grab a copy first if they still want one by the time I get this project done.
As of now, I do *not* have a locked-down timeframe for the printing of this book. I still have a lot of work to do, but things are moving along.
I also do not have final pricing as of yet, but it will likely be somewhere around $50 USD, with additional shipping costs.
Using my old Nature of Fly Casting book as a basis. I’m guessing that shipping will be $5-6 in the States (via Media Mail), probably in the $12-13 range to Canada and $25 or so everywhere else. That’s a *guess* not a final number.
