Well I'm a bit embarrassed by this since it came about unexpectedly. I wrote a series called the Cracker Barrel on the Fly Fishermen Online Website starting in 2002. It was done during the winter months when fly fishing was pretty much only a long wait until spring for most and cabin fever had set it, called the shack nasties due to conversation getting uglier as the winter waned.

I was also a moderator on the Classic Fly Rod Forum (originally called Clark's Classic Fly Rod Forum until 2005 when I became the owner and changed the name as requested by Clark Davis).

By 2005 the website grew from 9 members to 1200 and 5 million visits from 1998-2005. I took over as owner in April 2005 while it was still on EZBoard and had to move it to Yuku when they purchased EZBoard in 2007. I had to give it up last year due to fatigue from non-Hodgkin lymphoma and when I turned it over we had grown to over 5500 members and 60 million visits, had been written about in 6 books and became the number 1 place to discuss bamboo rods worldwide.

In October the editor who had contacted me earlier did again asking if I could get all the early segments and those that were written since to him because he wanted to get a fly fishing book out for Christmas.

It took 2 weeks of long days on the PC to get everything structured and sent off to him for editing. It finally got advertised and is available for pre-order at http://www.whitefishpress.com/bookdetail.asp?book=108

If you would like a sample of what is in the book, plus several segments written since it went to press, they can be found at my new website in the Cracker Barrel section http://fishnbanjosplace.yuku.com/directory

Happy Thanksiving
