In today's mail....it's here!

Post by mikevalla » Fri Nov 28, 2014 2:31 pm

The mail came today; The son of The Founding Flies. glad the book made it, at long last.

It's a nice book of 400 photos-- step-by-steps, scenic, fish. And each chapter sprinkled with anecdotes and stories of my own experiences, and those of my friends, fishing the 21 patterns featured.

Can you guess who that is fishing there, in the photo, on the Esopus? One of our own.....

Congrats. Hope the post partum is less painful than the pregnancy. :D

Excellent! I can't wait to get this book too. Hopefully Santa brings me a copy. Congratulations Mike.

Hey is that Ed in the photo?

Did you manage to get the picture of the trout you caught on an Oatman Sushan Postman into the book? That was a BEAUTIFUL fish.

>Ray, yes...that's our Ed, "Dean of the Esopus" in the photo. And, yes...I did get that 18" brook trout pic in the book, too.

--Thanks
