“One Last Look” by Bob White. If this painting does not make you want to go fishing, you need to check your head!

As a fly fisherman and bird hunter, I have been a fan of Bob White’s artwork for over a decade now. As some of you may be aware, Bob paints the artwork for John Gierach’s column in Fly Rod & Reel Magazine. Bob has also provided artwork for the books of many awesome outdoor writers including, but not limited to, John Gierach, William G. Tapply and Ted Nelson Lundrigan. Needless to say, Bob is at the top of his game.

From his gorgeous artwork, it is readily apparent that Bob has been there and done that. This is why I, and many other sportsmen, relate so well to his work. If you are not familiar with Bob’s work, I encourage to go to his studio’s website and check it out HERE.

I was ecstatic when Bob agreed to provide the artwork for my recent article, “Discovering Tinkhamtown,” in the Winter 2011 issue of The Upland Almanac. It was truly an honor to work with him. Through this process, I got to know Bob a little better. Although we have never met in person, I can say without reservation that Bob is a great guy and I hope to meet him some day . . . in, say maybe, Alaska or the Andes on a monster trout stream. Not surprisingly, Bob has spent a lot of time fishing these areas.

When I asked Bob if he wanted to review a copy of my just-released (i.e. April 1, 2012) book, Heaven on Earth: Stories of Fly Fishing, Fun & Faith, Bob readily accepted. With some of the spiritual themes therein, I was not sure exactly how he would receive it. To my great relief and excitement, Bob read my book, liked it, and wrote a great review for his newsletter. Here is the LINK to Bob’s review. I cannot say enough thanks to Bob and others for their awesome reviews and support of my book.

For any who are interested in getting a signed copy or in just learning more about my book, here is a link to the book’s WEBSITE.

Thanks for stopping by!
