Hope you are all well and loving life.
Its been a while, somehow my life has gotten a tad busy. Managed near the end of the season. To have some great clients All had fun and catching plenty cracking trout. Read on below.
The main thing that's been keeping me out the picture is my focus on writing which seems to be everyday and night that's spare.You will see the list of chapters above from the new book CHASING TIGERS - It's twice as many pages as Jungle Blues and a roller-coaster of another great true adventure fishing story.
I'll be needing and asking for all your amazing help again. To be able to publish it. So soon I'll be crowd funding to hopefully make it happen. I've allready done thousands of hours of work on it- which is all unpaid - this is not about making money- its about giving you something creative and fun, and yes its been creative and fun for me as well. Plus I get to tell a great story. So watch this space. Get ready.
In the mean time between that book the third book -OUT COME THE DOGS- another true story. For example, I've just doing the 4th re-write of it and just on this re-write alone, I've spent 270+ hours these past 5 weeks. And it's not finished. That's before all the other amazing pro creative help starts from the A team fairies. Covers done and looking sexy though. Will show you all soon.
I've been trying for two years to catch the local falcon nailing my neighbors chickens in action with my camera- finally I got to see how it catches them and the technique it uses as normally falcons target flying birds.
To escape writing and other work. I've been making arty shit. From stuff I've had laying around. As you can see Trigger has been helping. If you can call watching helping.
Jungle blues got a great review in Finland. As you can see in the photo. I have not got a clue what it says as its all in Finnish. Though I'll say its a great review :). Also it s had some other great magazine reviews ,i,ll post them later. Oh! check out and listen to the podcast review of Jungle Blues- below from BENT- the meat eater media guys
Oh! all the past last operations I had this past 12 months- that I never wanted! who does? went well and have all healed. Thank you all that asked.
Slight issue now, is that I have a very bad limp caused with a spinal issue and nerves. So that's not so good. Though I'm still smiling, positive and hopefully at some stage. I can get more spinal fusion work to help put things right. Again not what one really wants. Fingers crossed it happens sooner rather than later. 4 x 4 Wheelchair is ready. I can't be stopped.
Above you will see the x-ray of John from Australia my good client, his new knee operation, which I'm happy to hear was a success. He's already booked in for next season.To make him feel better in the photo you will see that I lent him my middle leg !
