Andrew Marshall's The History and Evolution of the Trout Fly is now shipping! The Limited Edition hardcover is selling quickly, so if you want one of these, please order soon. There are plenty of softcover books.
Here's a little update on our next project due to be released in November.
Fly Lines - how to make them details John Betts' unique and original method of making hand-crafted fly fishing lines. These lines are simple to make, inexpensive, have the look and feel of silk lines but are completely synthetic. John developed and refined these lines over 20 years.
Co-author Michael Hackney extends John's original work with information on dying lines, alternative methods of dressing, and additional line recipes for making 1wt to 7wt fly lines.
We're getting a lot of interest in the soon-to-be-released The History and Evolution of the Trout Fly by Andrew Marshall. Here are some photos - one fly from each of the major sections in the book - to whet your appetite!
Interest in the Limited Edition hardcover of 100 books is great. If you are interested in one of these best put your pre-order in as soon as possible. When they are gone, they are gone! There will be plenty of the softcover edition.
We are pleased to announce that we are now a distributor for Kathy Scott's wonderful DVD Simple Furled Leaders.
This DVD takes first time furlers through the process of furling their first leaders. I've been furling for 10+ years and I even learned a little trick from Kathy!

Welcome to our new Web site. Our original site was completely hand-coded and was becoming a chore to manage and update as our book catalog grew. After investigating a number of options, we landed here. This site is hosted at Weebly.com.
I've been using Weebly for a year on a few other projects and it is perfect for this type of site. If you are thinking about making a Web site, check out Weebly. If you need more serious e-commerce capabilities, then I recommend checking out BigCommerce.com. Our parent company, www.EclecticAngler.com, has been hosted there for a few years. It is equally as easy to update, but more geared to Web stores.

We'll provide information on upcoming books, availability of new books, and any other angling related information we find interesting or useful.
