Frank,
Did you get a body double for the inset photo?

That guy is smiling while holding a fish!

Tighten them up!

Everyone disagrees with me, and I am glad about that, but I don't like the cover that much. Too boxy, too many squares

Frank, I like the cover, but I also agree with you on the "boxy" thing. I kind of like the look on the cover of "Hotspots"- that blended border around the picture. I do have a question, what is that sticking up out of the inset photo on the new book? It's just above your right shoulder, almost looks like another rod, was someone else fishing? T.J.

Yes, it is a rod. They blocked the other person out with the inset pix. His line was in and he was standing by out of the way, not knowing the fish, and line, were going down his way. He got clear and there was no problem. I am also nearly certain that was one of the big mornings at the Race Bar when I had all the big fish and the bass were tailing for sandeels, when the regulars with rigged eels, Atoms, were stymied.

For me, it was a defining moment in fly fishing the striper surf, though there had been others as far back as 10 years before. The big shot was taken in '77; the smaller inset of the bull schoolie was, not sure, 96 or 98.

Frank, Congratulations on your latest book. If I get the job interview, and it goes well, I will have to read it in Maine(yeah, I remember what you said). BUT, I may have to play with salmon, my striped bass smoker will do double duty as a salmon smoker, and who knows....maybe moose burgers ala bowhunting. I am very happy for you, and Holly and I wish you & Momma J the best.

Frank.
The cover is OK but I'm anxious for the content. I have well traveled salt water fly gear that has very little experience. I like your shirt on that inset pic. Multi-purpose; do you use for a picnic drop after fishing?

Wrong pattern, Squid. Isn't it pink and white checks, like in the Italian restaurants, that yuz do a picnic on?

I'm actually envious. My daughters won't let me wear plaid shirts --- and I do make concessions to their suggestions on wardrobe, as long as it is khakis and cotton shirt. I'm burning through your books. May have to read them twice. My bride and my son-in-law are anxious to test some of your lessons. I've got little group of fishing buddies beginning to slobber over the little tidbits I give them from your books. Or maybe it is age or the Bellhaven Wee Heavies. The salesman in me causes me to tantilize them with your stories. I'm doing the best I can to boost book sales in the Phila. area. I apoligize for Ben franklin leaving Boston to come to Philly but he was drawn to the cheesesteaks and soft pretzels. When he tired of the French girls the lure of the South Philly Italian lasses was too much to pass up. Those plastic pink and white table clothes would work well for a picnic --- or just for wrapping up an Italian sweety.

Squid, you really touch a nerve when mentioning Italian girls. I guess you want whatever you can't have.

You're on the money Frank. This sweet little Irish bride and fishing buddy of mine (28 years)assures me that there is not a roll with anybody else in the tablecloth that would be worth living in the back of my pickup for, if she lets me keep that. It's that lifetime treasure/moments pleasure conundrum. Unless provoked by evil ales I don't even fool nyself with the thought, (much).
