We need some help - we're seeking input on which cover we should use for my upcoming book! Our general criteria is to use an action shot and to have it be representative of the area covered. Vote in the poll on the right-hand side. Thanks for playing!

NOTE: The publisher will have the final say, but this input will help drive the decision.

I think a strong argument can be made for number 2, considering how well you can see the "No Smith River Mine" sticker. Just noticed that :)

Does the publisher have the say over the title? Seems it should be Flyfisher's Guide™ to Southwest Montana's Mountain Lakes.

Ha, yeah maybe Mark. That's just how we've/they've always done that. Nice catch.

I like the peacefulness of the scene with the gentle arc of the rod held by Liz as she begins to bring in her catch.

I like number 2 because the fish looks dead. Looks like you are ready to catch and release into bacon grease. I feel like this makes the cover feel a bit more traditional and timeless and counteracts the modernity of "GPS!!"

Noted (second) anonymous, will consider. I'll put you down for a signed copy.

I like #4. It just looks more alpine.
