    Default A New Book from Bill Hansford-Steel

    This book, written by one of South Africa's most experienced fly fishers and angling writers will be available shortly, published by Struik of Cape Town.

    The subject is flies of the world and it should prove invaluable for all fly fishers, particularly those who dress their own flies.

    Not only that, but there are a few contributions by moi.

    Hardcover edition out now, both Netbooks and Kalahari have it .... anyone seen it yet? Comments...?

    Anyone know if there is going to be a softcover version? (cheaper )

    Anyone have a direct contact for Bill? I would prefer to get the book from the author if possible, as I like to get the book signed.

    TIA.

    I'd like to have a look at it, before actually considering buying it. I have a sneaky suspicion the flies may be a little "yesterday"...but I may be wrong.
    There are so many books out on flies, that it will have to be something special to be able to compete against the others.

    I'm also interested to see what it's like. I can't say his first book was particularly inspiring, for me, it tended to fall into the "Read once, now gathering dust on the bookshelf and haven't looked at it since" category.

    HI Mike,

    Suspicion is a good thing, have the same view, but let's check it out. Maybe a new pattern or 2.(or3))
