OK. This book is going to be around 173,299 words long, in six main sections and with over 300 illustrations. I'm spending huge amounts of time at present taking the final images (of fly-patterns) and cutting/editing the final draft text. (At the same time I'm constructing the website entries - in themselves, over 200 pages and another 200 or so images.) The finished book, which will appear next year, will be around 500 pages of text.
This website details some of the angling travels that are currently going into the making of a new book, Irish Sea-trout: Nomads of the Tides (Chris McCully and Ken Whelan, with images by James Sadler, forthcoming from the Medlar Press in 2013). Included here are also fragments of text, musings and speculations, fly-dressings and other material - about kettles, splices, (Irish) angling history and etymology - that we think is interesting. The book will represent not only an operational phase (angling travels in Ireland, 2007-2012) but also the long experience of fishing for Irish sea-trout that the writers share. We hope you enjoy these pages.
