Please note: I encourage everyone who purchases this book to go to Office Max, Staples, or Kinkos to get it spiral bound. The cost is minimal and it makes it easy to lay the book flat on your tying bench as you work. Thank you - Jay Nicholas.

About the Author
Here's the short bio: I was born to share small glimpses about being human through story telling, writing and art, most of which is filtered in some way through the lens of fishing.

Along the way, I've fished for some sixty years; fly fished and tied flies for over fifty years; served as an officer in the US Navy; been dad to two sons; established a distinguished career as fishery scientist over four decades; and written an uncounted number of work reports. Devoting personal energy to writing and creating art to express my thoughts is relatively new. In retrospect, I realize I've only felt free to express myself fully over the last decade, leading to the first series of books I have self-published here.

Frankly, I wish I had devoted more energy to creative writing and art throughout my life, but - better late than never.

I decided to take the Amazon/Create Space self-publishing route because I feel a great sense of urgency. I wanted to get these books, stories, paintings, and sketches out the door quickly, while I can. I'm well aware that my books contain errors that a professional editor would resolve, but am willing to accept considerable imperfection in order to make my stories and art accessible now, rather than risk leaving the stories untold.

I am grateful whenever someone tells me that they found a laugh, a surprise, a smile, a new idea, or encouragement from one of these books. I have many more stories in me, and am blundering ahead to add these to build my portfolio, while I may.

Meanwhile, I extend my sincere thanks to each person who has found enjoyment from my work and shared his or her reaction.
