HELLO EVERYBODY :)
This is the last news letter until the new year and its taken hours to put it together. Due to slow post if you wish some of the best fishing flies in the world from Stu's Superior Flies Ltd - I advise you to order today so I can send them out this week or it will be too late, so that you have them for your fishing days and holidays coming up.
I can only hope you are well and many of you will struggling with all that's going on especially outside of NZ, my thoughts are with you all, especially my friends in Nepal and other third world countries. Chasing Tigers will feature all of you from Nepal- we are working on that book guys, right now. Knowing what you are going through makes my life not bad even though I've lost most of my work- "I will survive"(Gloria Gaynor). Though I'm still flat stick with all my non paying jobs and cant keep up with them all which is fun and keeps me busy and motivated.
The good thing is ACDC have done the near impossible and got a new album out, that's giving me heaps of fly design ideas and writing ideas, funny where all the juicy creative things get inspired by and come from sometimes.
I went to get a story camping and to catch one trout in a river two other French friends have lost over the past four years - its a great story and was a huge task and challenge. It was a place where I could take Trig's the other week 1300klm and hours and days of walking and carrying the pack nearly broke my back and ignited some past issues with it, that I'd hoped were fixed and gone, its great to dream :). Though we made it there and back safely.
Been trying to get some short stories to write about as I cant do the big walk through NZ that I'd wished and hopped to do and rent my house out to cover costs, as I now have two bloody Hernias and hopefully will get them operated on in the future, I've been holding them in with strapping up the outside of my stomach with sports tape when on missions :). Once I get them fixed I can then hopefully ignite the bigger idea for a another book idea walking and fishing through NZ. Though that may not be for a few years now, though like everything it will happen, I've just got to get to Everest base camp - before I climb the bloody mountain - I have always said.
:) Have a great holiday time and thank you all for your support, catch you all again in Jan or March. Get your orders in now and tell all your mates where to buy the best fly designs.
Stu & the Tigster xx
