    My new book is out – finally. 240 pages, 64 pages of colour plates, flexi-cover with a dust jacket and self-published. Unfortunately it costs about $30 to air mail it to the US so I don’t expect to sell too many there.

    Its called “A Few Great Flies …… and how to fish them”. Its fundamentally a saltwater book but in the end, in my view, fly fishing is fly fishing, they all have to eat and its a matter of putting what they might want to eat in front of them in the right way.

    If anyone wants any advise on self-publishing ask away, although I’m about to go away for 2 weeks of fishing. Mind you I still have 2,400 copies to sell but I’m confident they’ll go. In time it will be available as an ebook.

    Mr. Morse, do you often do self published books? And what are the advantages and disadvantages?


    Its my first self published book, previous 2 were published by established houses, 10% of retail price utterly sucks.

    Disadvantages – its an awful lot of work, finding somewhere to store them. Unexpected stress levels.

    Advantages – complete responsibility for the book, learning how to spell and punctuate more betterer,
