So this just showed up a few days ago. Looks good and sure isn’t shy about page count! Nice way to kick off the print edition. Thanks Jen Ripple! Check it out here:
For the next book. Video anyone?
At Sexyloops: Jason Borger’s Custom Fly Rod.
As many friends know, my primary grip for single-handed rods is the 3-Point (note that I wrote “primary,” not “only”). The 3-Point figures pretty large in my new Single-Handed Fly Casting book, so I figured I’d toss a video up here, as well. This is from 2003, so take it easy on me in terms of video quality.
The book is here, and it will be shipping starting this weekend. There are a fair number of pre-orders and I’ll get them out the door as quickly as I reasonably can. Special/A/P copies will (mostly) ship first, followed by the rest of the standard signed/numbered. Check back here for progress, and thanks to everyone for your (on-going) patience.
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?
Single-Handed Fly Casting is on a truck somewhere between Ohio and Oregon. The books will be passing some good water on the way! Should be here by mid-week, and then the fun starts: shipping. The Artist’s Proofs will go out first, and then into the standard signed/numbered in order. I’ll be posting about progress as I go. No fishing for me for a few days, that’s for sure….
