Book Launch

TODAY'S THE DAY!!!

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, BOYS AND GIRLS  

NOW PRESENTING

THE NEWEST BOOK ON THE BLOCK

FLY FISHERMEN OF CALDWELL COUNTY:
LIFE STORIES FROM NORTH CAROLINA



Isn't it beautiful! That's Newland Saunders in action in a picture taken by Bill Everhardt. Thank you Kim and Brian Thigpen for the cover design.

Now for the flip side back cover:

Thank you to Jim Childers for the fly pictures and to Alen Baker and Doug Suddreth for their eloquent comments we garnered from their writings. In the background is a picture of Wilson Creek taken by Bill Kincaid, the exact same photograph that is at the top of my blog page. 

This book was truly a cooperative venture. So many people contributed their time and talents into making this a reality. We can never express enough appreciation for what you contributed.

To all twenty-eight fishermen in the book, I hope we did you justice. 

I'm proud to be a part of it.

Catch of the day,

Gretchen

  3. Thanks, Linda, but in this case I was only the compiler. Each fisherman (or for those who have passed on, their wives or children) wrote his own chapter. It was a fantastic experience being a part of this.
