    Default I wrote a book...

    I wrote a book about fly fishing and I've decided to post it online for any interested viewers. It's at:

    Any suggestions for future additions would be welcome.

    Is your book available in hard copy Dick?

    No hard copy...I wanted to spend the time putting my experience on record but as a pensioner my funds don't extend to getting it printed. I'm leaving it online for all to read and use. Enjoy

    You need to look at the book - it's an Ebook which means that I put in over 150 videos as well as word and images. It's much more than just another book - check it out and try clicking on one of the links in the chapters.

    Dick,

    That looks an excellent read. Is there any chance it's available as something that will read on an apple device, a .pdf for instance?

    Cheers

    Just had a quick skim through and it looks like you've done an excellent job. Congratulations and I hope that it's a great success.
    A lot of work seems to have gone into it.

    I shall enjoy reading it in more detail.

    Well done Sir, had a quick flick though and looks pretty comprehensive. I'll have a proper read when I have more time.

    I agree with everyone above-a good read that I have saved and will delve into. Thanks for sharing with us Dick

    Thank you for your positive comments. It has taken me 4 years to put together and I hope that it will become a reference source for this forum. I intend to leave it online permanently.

    Any suggestions for future additions or ideas will always be welcome.

    thank you very much for sharing this.

    As you are probably aware some folks on this forum will want to give you advice or criticise an omission etc etc. Dont listen, the vast majority will not have written a book themselves, or ever will.

    Well done.

    We are mostly helpful here, not like the flyfishers you encountered in your introduction.
