Book on Classic Saltwater Flies

Although the moderators know, I think it is safe to say now ,that we have a contract (or are finalizing the negotiations) with Wild River Press . Joe Branham and I are planning on Co-Authoring a book on Classic Saltwater flies. Dividing them into the "old" classic and 'New" classics. This will involve a number of people who have agreed to help from Lefty Kreh to Steve Abel. Joe and I will divide the work. We will tye the flies where we can not get originals and I will be interviewing some of the pioneers on the subject. We want this to be the authority on Classic Saltwater flies with professionally done photo's and the other criteria that this publisher wants. It is the same publisher as Rich Muphy has for his book. I expect that the work will be done in 8 months... the research and writing... then we start the proof work. I will beleive it when I see it. Anyway, no administering swaps for me this year.

Does this mean that any trips to CAC over the next season will include proof reading in exchange for accomodations?

I look forward to the book. Best to you and Joe as the work progresses.
