The Zen of Home Water.

#1

Post by quick cane »

I am new here but a long time fly-fisherwoman. I cannot believe I didn't know this place was a thing! I just finished reading the book the zen of home water. It was so good. I enjoyed it as much as any book I have ever read. I would love to get a signed copy for my dad for the holiday. I have looked all over the internet but cannot find anything signed. I did notice that this sight had people who read. If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.

thanks-B

Thank you so much. I did reach out directly. Mr. Hamza was very nice and accommodating. I am enjoying this site so much. The name is misleading because so much more goes on here.

thanks again- Bethany

I just finished reading this book, and only have one complaint--- it was a hundred pages too short... a fine read IMO, the kind of book you didn't want to put down, but on the other hand didn't want to run out of pages to read... Job well done!

Does anyone know who did the artwork on the cover? It looks similar to the cover of John Geirach's A fly rod of your own.

Hi,
Sorry I have not been here in a while. The fine artist is CD Clarke. He is a premier outdoor artist and fly-fisherman. If you get a chance , look at his website. www.cdclarke.com . His work makes wonderful gifts.

I hope Santa brings us all some fine fishing in 2021.-Jerry

Just finished it and wanted to thank Mr. Hamza for just a wonderful book. I really enjoyed the chapter related to golf, a sport I also detest for similar reasons as the author.

Like drinking a bottle of Strawberry wine I am taking my time reading Jerry Hamza's "Zen of Home Waters".......It is too good to rush through !!! We have never met face to face but his writing is like hanging out with one of my old Pals, we share many of the same thoughts about the angling world, especially split bamboo fly rods. Thanks Jerry.
