Today's mail...(feelin' pretty good....)

Post by mikevalla » Tue Jun 04, 2013 1:54 pm

Feelin' pretty good today. Received from Stackpole today an author's copy of The Founding Flies.

Thanks to all who helped make this what it is. This work serves, in a small way at least, that our fly tying greats---who made our sport what it is---will not be forgotten.

Congrats, Mike.

Looks like a bestseller to me!

Congrats Mike, I know from our little talks the pain you have endured with this one, and it must feel really good to hold it in your hands after the work is finalized. Looking forward to another one of your "Amazon sales record holders" :D Bet you are already started on the next one.... ;) CJ

Way to go, Mike. Keep crankin' 'em out like this, and you'll become the fly fisherman's James Patterson. :)
