Got this book in the mail Thursday. Have just read the first few chapters but so far I like it. George really has his own ideas on leader design. Also the first time I ever heard of a tippet ring. I do think I'm going to give some of ideas a go. I saw last year at the Penn's Creek TU banquet. Pretty good speaker.

Fox, he will be giving a presentation for the Western Pocono Tu on Memorial day. This will include an on stream presentation of his tactics. My book will be arriving Monday and look forward to the read.

Been pouring over my copy too. Very in-depth, lots of technical info, including casting instruction for different situations/rigs. Some fly patterns, and a neat multipage spread of George's fly box. This is not just a look at "Euro"style either, plenty of space devoted to high stick tactics developed right here in PA. So far I am really immpressed. This might be one of the better fly books I have read.

FG - I think Feather Craft Carries the ripper ring. I have never been able to bring myself to try it. I think it is a standard on furled leader systems. Not sure on that though.

Received my copy for Christmas. Great read, packed with tons of information. IMO one of the best flyfishing books to come along in a while.

Im a big fan of the tippet rings but they are expensive. Anyone know a different source for these besides Feather-craft?

Awesome book. I got through half of it already in a couple days. I've been a big fan of the tippet ring for a while now.

The more I read the more I want to try his ideas. I'll be getting some Stren and rings in the near future.

George also has a article in flyfishman mag. about nymphing skinny water. It is very informative.

It;s a good book - great photos. One problem I have with many of these books recently is: they pretty much all just take ideas that have been beat into the ground and change wording. Come on - "suspension device"... hasn't it just always been an indicator?? Kudos though to guys like him - they make it work and make a buck -that's really what it is all about. I think him and others would sell their favorite fishing spot for a price....

Got it a week ago with no expectations. It's a visually appealing book with many good pictures. Content is good, but there isn't much new to me in it. I think it would be good for someone that's a little newer to fishing, or has spent less time trying new nymphing techniques. Probably the last "how to" book I buy in a long time. A few years ago, it would've been a godsend to me, as I am sure it is to many others.
