Change Is Good

Dear Kind Readers, in keeping with the theme of the day, I've made a few minor housekeeping changes here at FOTL.

RIP Finspot

For reasons that will become apparent, it's time to retire the old handle, at least in part. In some quarters, particularly fly-fishing boards that I frequent (and boat-burning bonfire parties), I will always be Finspot. I've used the alias for more than a decade, so I don't expect it to go away (email is still finspotcook AT gmail DOT com), but for professional reasons it's time to emerge from the shadows. Which leads to the next change...

The Book!

You'll see a link to it in the upper right corner. Yep, FOTL is going to be a book. We're mighty thrilled. I'll have more to say on the subject as we get closer to the pub date (September '09), but suffice it to say the book will be quite different from the blog. More on that later.

Now back to our regularly programmed content.

You've done it. You wrote the book I was supposed to write. Now I will have to just shift gears, and get off my lazy a$$.

Congratulations, Lang. It's (very) nice to put a face with the name, too. :)

Change is definitely good. Congrats on being 'out'. Looking forward to buying the book!

Heather - Off the tuckus! I'm sure anything you pen will be entertaining. (And yeah, I'm finally getting around to using some of these handy Blogspot widgets...)

Audrey - Gracias. Now I know my "ranking" will get at least a little bump.

Whooo - take a few days off, and all hell breaks loose. Well, they say there's a book in every man; glad to see yours is finally oozing out!

Congrats, my friend.
