I'll post a link to the article and discussion that Dave K put on the home page. Some people come right into the forum and miss the home page. No need to repeat the comments in this section.

I am partway through the book and have commented on the thread above.

I bought it at Somerset, but I just can't be bothered to read it.

He's a phenomenal speaker, and clearly he knows what's going on... The book looks good, I like the simple line drawings inside, and I suspect its filled with knowledge I'd like to learn and master because as he was very adamant in saying: Its not just fishing hte surface, but taking advantage of that final few inches of water and the meniscus barrier it presents. Its of supreme important to a dry fly purist snob like me, but, meh to technical books.

He wants to make this part of an exhaustive 20 part series of fly fishing technique.

The book reads well. For me this is not reading and tying season, this is doing season. Somewhere I saw a comment he made about working on book three. So book two is likely at the publisher. Figuring two books a year that would be ten years. A long time for a book series. You can pre-order the whole set from his WEB site. I'll pass on the set and check em out one at a time.

Your "praise" of Meck's book not so good an endorsement, sir.

Besides, its been personalized to me and I've got a fly of his stuffed in the cover, too. Or somewhere.

So long and thanks for all the feesh?

Not sure. I make all these guys sign their books for me, though. It'll make my unread library of unread fishing books that much more valuable when I'm dead, if you're named Gary at least.
