The Best Fly Fishing Book in Years-
The announcement from the
ANGLING TRADE MAGAZINE. May-21-2020
I hope you are all doing as well as you can during these strange times. We managed to make the goal and I can't congratulate or thank you all enough for your awesome help and support. All of you helped made this first book happen(even if you just looked) and I hope you will be as proud of it as Trigger is. :) All the printed books and give always were sent out 10 days + ago.
Lots of you are asking hows business holding up - Well business is very dead and I'm surviving only due to the government hand outs and so glad the NZ government is helping us small business - I can't lay anyone off, as its just me her - though maybe Trigger :). I,m even just about to borrow from the tax department- now that is quite remarkable, being able to get help from them!
I was going to get another job to pay the bills, though I'm having some more health issues and about to go back under the knife this time a hip. Both are shot,one has got bad. Having to fork out and go private as the public system would take maybe a year or more I've been told.
I,m still lucky compared to many out there especially at this time in the world. Hopefully be all good and walking come oct for work, the joys of getting younger each day and not working to hard through the years!! :) :)
Back to the book. The print version is now available to order straight from my web site, the only place you can get and own a printed copy.
The photo above is Paul in the Jungle(I,m far more ugly), he features in the book more than any fish and so he should the guy is a fly fishing/casting legend.
Last Saturday was my local book launch, held in the huge resort town of Athol at the Famous Brown Trout cafe run by Rob & Jane along with the awesome Ellie (the sneaky chef).
44 Locals showed up , for the talk and slide show, was fun :) and that I apparently managed to entertain all. Despite my Scottish dialect and the odd swear word.At least the kids understood those words! :)
Selling on the night an amazing amount of books = 37 books out of 44 people not bad.(36 I bought) It was interesting only two of the book purchasers were fishermen.
The feedback so far, from the few people that don't fish that have read it, is its a good fun,easy and interesting read. Its going to be interesting to see what people who fish think of it? maybe they will not have an open mind expecting it to be a normal fishing book.There is nothing normal about me and what I do. Some bugger, just pointed out to me - Maybe they are right?
Another big named editor of a huge NZ fishing publication has also just read the book and loved it, saying its the least stale fishing book he's ever read and could not put it down.
All this support and kind words is and has always been so humbling to hear.
So now I need some help to try and sell some copies and get it out there from you and any of your friends.
I need reviews on Amazon.
You have a couple of days only to download your FREE copy of JUNGLE BLUES vol-3. Its not as good as the print version with the photos and extra bits and super cool cover.
Who has ever given you such a gift of thousands of hours away of bloody hard work, for FREE- just for some hopefully kind words.
So please keep supporting what I do, you are all awesome and its my gift to you all at this terrible time in the world and as a thank you for your support.
If you have bought the printed book please also after you have finished reading it, leave an amazon review (feedback) it will definitely help me into the future with my other books - so do it or else!
I know where you live. :)
It has been such an amazing creative journey this first book and I'm currently working on the other projects, it never stops. More cool stuff to come soon so watch this space.
Stu & Trigger
