Default Austin Hogan's book

To all that enjoy fly fishing----a must is to own one of Austin's fly fishing books on the topic of fly tying and fishing.

The book is being distributed by Daniel & Joanna Cote' of Double Gun Journal.

I received mine yesterday. An amazing history of Austin S. Hogan (our Austin's father) and fly-fishing in the Northeast from some of the earlier decades of the last century.

I will have a color advertisement in the Winter Issue of Parker Pages - it didn't quite make it into the Fall Issue which is being mailed today.

This has been nearly a life-long project for Austin W. and I remember about five or six years ago as Kathy and I were driving the gravel road in to Ernie Hausmann's we met Austin driving out to pick up Pam at her relative's home. We chatted for a few minutes and I could see he was pretty excited. He said, "Dean, I've finished the manuscript for my book." upon which he lifted it from the seat beside him and showed me a couple of pages.

This book is handsomely printed and published using the highest quality of materials and inks. It is every bit as nicely published as "The Parker Story" which was also published by Double Gun Journal.

497 pages of fly-fishing wonderment! To Austin - and I hope he's looking down smiling - I say Congratulations on the completion of your dream!

Ditto.
Wow, I had no idea. He obviously knew/fished with some of the Catskills' legends. A man consumed by untold passions, quite a guy.

Sometimes I'm not sure which I love the most, hunting with a classic side x side shotgun or fishing with a bamboo fly rod. Fortunately I can do both. Can't wait to add this book to the library. John Davis

It is well-worth the price. I'm also going to order the trade edition as a "loaner".
