Joshua Green has owed Sage for several years, they also purchased Redington 2-3 years ago.
Far Bank Enter. was recently formed as a subsidiary and now owns Sage, Reddington and Rio Products.
This is the third Green family name associated with Sage since the early 80’s, it does get confusing.
You can pitch your book to several publishers, but in the age of on-demand digital printing, self-publishing is not a bad option either.
The benefit is you retain control (and the subsuquent rights) to your project. Rather than a royalty, you enjoy the profits of the sale. Obviously, these profits are much higher — once you’ve paid for the printing.
The downsides are that you don’t enjoy the distribution that you would with a publisher, and you also become responsible for a lot of details around production and publishing that you’d rather not touch.
Another writer and I have been having this discussion lately (he’s published a couple of fly fishing books, I’m looking at my first). As someone with 20 years of marketing in my background, I think self-publishing makes sense if you’re sure you have a solid market for your book and are willing to learn a lot about publishing and the promotion process.
Otherwise, there are a lot of “how-to” books for getting published — get a good one, write a few chapters, and start pitching.
For more information about self-publishing, simply google “book self publishing” and start wading…
::) Could I return some flies that I couldn’t catch any fish on? 😮 Silver Doc
What campsite did you stay at and how far did you fish up Eagle Creek?
What campsite and how far did you fish up Eagle Creek?
Fishing’s been good, but the big browns seem to be running a little behind– shouldn’t be too long.
BTW, the Omni-Bounce for SB-600 is $16 at the BAMO (Big-Ass Mail Order) camera stores.
Check out the Sto-Fen Omni Bounce.
I have a similar situation on a Carp fishery I haunt. Fish to 35-40″ and clear water. Your right in tailwater situations , what is probably happening is that they are feeding opportunistically on whatever the increased flow brings, therefore more open/less discerning and easier to take- same situation here.
😉 I just retired a pair of SST’s that have seen some heavy service for 5 years. Bought another pair and hope they last another 5. They had them on sale at Sierra discounts. 🙂 Silver Doc
Sounds awesome!!! Can’t wait for the story and pix.
In order….Classic rock,NPR,sports talk,Broadway,jazz,classical and some country occasionally.
My fly pic rig cobbled together from bits and bits:)
The diffuser panel( critical to get soft even lighting)
Zach, I like to see some reviews, esp. new equipment. Being a non-world traveler, I really don’t care about Argentina,Russia, or where ever the new hot spot is. Even with a lottery in my future,( And that seems pretty low if I’ve figured the odds out right) there are more than enough spots here in North America that I’d like to fish. Also Like TxFlyBum, I’d like the state by state thing.Guy
😮 Hoping that my wife never comes across this, about $3000. ::) This includes travel and lodging and guides. My buddy and I try to do it on the cheap and we do pretty well. We have fished in some grotesque places, but have caught fish and have had a ball. Also I try to buy “stuff” on sale. This includes rods and reels and etcetera. Now that I have retired I plan to start tying flies and should save some dough. If my wife asks, you know nothing. 😉 Silver Doc
I like were I live in relation to a great stream. I’m only 18 miles from the river and I can get there in 25 min. Gas has dropped to $3.29 for premium. It’s not too bad to pay for peace and tranquility and some nice fish. And the car gets good milage. 🙂 I’m off to Italy next week and I know I’m going to get bruised with the price of gas in Europe. ??? ; Will fill you in when I get back. ;D Silver Doc
🙂 William Douglas, former Supreme Court Justice, was a Fly fisherman. I remember reading about how during some “dull cases” he would daydream about fishing. Also, don’t forget some great books by Harry Middleton. Silver Doc
It could have been an effort to increase sales.
For real! I thought I latched on to something when I got a signed copy of that book and cover. Now, every store I see that book in has the same misprint on the cover… even the ‘big box’ book stores. :-[
I was shocked reading Geirachs latest, Still Life with a Brook Trou and was shocked he said a lot more than how much coffe he drank with A.J.
