Writing is Done!

So, after about 17 revisions (really), the beast has all its words. It will lose some in the final edit, but at least I’m not looking to add a bunch more. Into the pics next (already have some done), and then layout. Will do the final clean-up after that to get it all looking more or […]

SHFC Update — August 11

I am continuing to flail away on SHFC, grabbing writing time as I can. Everything that I plan on including in the book is in the book, but not fully fleshed out. Some chapters are about 97-percent, others are more like 67-percent. It’s the 67-percenters that I am focusing on right now, including the D-Loop […]

The Final 11 of 20 (SC20)

After solving a time-consuming production issue, I am offering the J.Borger SC20 rods again. The first batch of SC20s have gone out the door and are now on the water. There are 11 10 of the original 20 numbers remaining: 6, 9, 10, 12, 13, 14, 17, 18, 19, 20. Rather than direct you to […]

Leadership Intensive (Bring a Rod)

For any FF&W readers who might be interested in a rather special corporate/personal leadership intensive, my father (GB) is participating in a program with world-renowned author and leadership coach, Stephen McGhee, and my long-time fishing friend, Douglas Freimuth. The program will be built around three days of fly-fishing and runs September 19 – 22. The […]


To finish up the TAaP post triple, here’s a link to the Table of Contents (PDF file). If you had any question as to what TAaP might contain, hopefully this will go some distance toward an answer. I think that GB is brewing up something else on the book, so I’ll let him post at […]

TAaP = Done

Finally, The Angler as Predator (or TAaP to those of us waaaay too familiar with it) is done. I have some of the usual end-of-process clean-up in the Index file and then I need to generate the press PDFs, but all 208 pages are otherwise ready to go. Some readers may realize that 208 pages is long […]

Wild Pixels and “The Angler as Predator”

Today’s story problem: GB is in sunny, warm Argentina catching numerous large brown trout. I am in the rainy Pacific Northwest, herding obstinate pixels. Which one of us is having more fun? While you ponder the answer, I’ll just let you know that The Angler as Predator, the next book in the “Fly Fishing” series, is almost […]

The J.BFF Weekend Update

A few notes on J.BFF projects that are in the works: The early arrival of my little daughter, Brooke, put a multi-month slow-down on my upcoming Single-Handed Fly Casting book, but I’m finally getting back to filling in the blank areas once again. Also trying to get a good handle on shipping costs, using my […]

My Madison – Now on iTunes

20 years ago, my father (GB) teamed up with his long-time fishing friend and musician, John Beth, to create a CD entitled, “My Madison.” The disc was focused on Montana’s Madison River and what it meant to the angling lives of both my father and John. Genre-wise, the CD was a mix of spoken word […]

Last of the SS#1 Tees

The Steelhead Study #1 tees are mostly sold through their print run. I have a few left in all sizes except for 3XL. Once these are gone, I’ll be retiring this design. If you are interested, you can order directly here. SOLD OUT.

Short Day, Long Project

For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere today is the shortest day of the year. I figured that it would be a good day to make a first post about a long project—all 106 inches of it. Designed to be at home on trout water, slinging bugs and chucking streamers. Only 20 will be […]

J.Borger Fly Fishing – The Story Begins

I grew up as a fly fisher, and fly fishing has shown me the deeply involved rhythms of water, land, and fish. Fly fishing has been a way in which I could lose my sense of time, but also a way to challenge myself so intensely that a second ticked by like a carefully watched […]
