Welcome to Wild River Press
A New Direction in Quality Publishing
When I was a young journalism student, I was given a gift—although, at the time, I did not fully realize how valuable.
“Read only the best,” a wise, eccentric man advised me. “You won’t have time for the rest.”
Nearly 15 years ago I launched Wild River Press with a focused aim: to create the finest fishing and hunting in print. With enthusiastic support from sportsmen and sportswomen who know and still treasure fine sporting literature, we have succeeded. We have brought you adventure and knowledge from the experts, while winning a string of impressive international awards of publishing excellence along the way.
Thank you to all—our wonderful authors and loyal readers—for making our collective success possible.
Last year we made an important decision to move our printing from Asia to the United States. Now all Wild River Press books are printed at a state-of-the art printing plant in Tennessee by skilled American craftsmen, using high-quality paper milled in Wisconsin. I am proud of this development and this added dimension to our reputation for quality.
New to our lineup of fine sporting titles this year are:
- Top Saltwater Flies in three volumes: Bonefish, Tarpon and Permit
- Tying Steelhead Flies With Style
- Turkey Men Volume 2
And as we approach the end of another publishing year, I am pleased to report that we have many exciting projects underway, including the October 2018 release of Pheasant Dogs by Keith R. Crowley of Wisconsin, as well as the December 2018 release of Why Women Hunt by K. J. Houtman of Minnesota and Fifty Women Who Fish by Steve Kantner of Florida. Each of these books is wonderful in its own right; collectively the three move us in an exciting new direction. I can’t help but think more international awards await these three talented, hard-working authors. You’re going to love what they have written and photographed.
Finally, for those of you with a collection of stories of your experiences in the field or on the water—or with the dream of a published memoir you’ve imagined giving your friends and family as a gift—ask about our new Wild River Custom Publishing service. We can help you plan, edit and bring to reality the book you’ve been thinking about.
Yours for Reading Only the Best,
