Best of luck to you Chuck.....with all the passion you have for the subject.....i'm sure it'll be a real fun read. You can count on me to pick up a copy. But i'll need your John Hancock in there.

In my book, I do my level best NOT to talk about the exact things they talk about, but it's hard not to , cause so many things overlap. I just really do think there is room for another bluegill book on the market..Don't get me wrong. The Wilson's is an AWESOME book. I just think that if Trout can have thousands of books, then a bluegill should be able to have at least two, specially since it is the MOST sought after fish species (at least freshwater) bar none. Thing is, there's not so many zillions of money in the latest and greatest (expensive) tackle lures, fly patterns etc as there are for other species to make all that money off of. And, I have wanted to write a book all my life, so it was a perfect fit. I was just waiting for a subject (cause all I wish to write is non fiction) that I felt strongly enough about to write a whole book, and that happened to be fly fishing/tying for bluegills (the working title is "How to catch 100 Bluegills per day on a Fly Rod"). Man, thing that slows me down is that I'm a redneck hillbilly trying to write a book without murdering the king's English too bad LOL. Plus, I get to put great pics of my kids and grandkids fly fishing (and catching bluegills) with me in the book, and that is a great feeling. Good thing I have a great editor (Mr. Fish) who stays on my A$$. I think he has worn out about three red ink pens making corrections and the book is just over half finished LOLOL. Sorry for writing a book here LOL..

I have over half a book written about fly fishing/tying for bluegills and I need to get back to work and finish it, cause they are the MOST caught species of freshwater fish caught, PERIOD, yet one of the least written about.
