Hi.

 

A month or so ago, Jimmy said Geert should make a book of his wet flies. So I did it. The digital edition is live on Amazon here

 

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N2PFN8W/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1480708716&sr=8-2-fkmr0&keywords=Creative+GEWE+wet+flies

 

The book has over 1,000 of Geert's wet flies, and a couple of SBS tutorials. It may be the precursor to a print edition, but whether I put it out to the public will depend, in part, on the support the digital copy gets. It will take 5 times as much work to format a print edition, which will be a lot more expensive because color is costly to print. The digital edition is $9.95.

 

As always, Geert and I had a hoot working together; he just kept sending fly photos, and I kept writing and making the book. Haha.

Hi Jimmy,

Interesting. Geert said he was able to download the book.

 

https://www.amazon.com/Creative-Flies-tied-GEERT-WERBROUCK-ebook/dp/B01N2PFN8W/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1480781983&sr=8-1&keywords=creative+gewe+wet+flies

 

That should be the link that takes you there, unless it's held up in the UK for the VAT bookkeeping. Please keep me in the loop! I thought of you often while writing and making the book! Haha.

Woohoo! As an editor of mine was fond of saying, "That ought to shake the apes down out of the trees!"

 

All the best,

John
