We are currently looking to publish nonfiction work that connects to one of the following:

  • Fly fishing

  • Public lands 

  • The Rocky Mountains

  • Environmental conservation, particularly in the western United States

While we encourage authors to read these guidelines broadly, the closer your manuscript fits within one of the above categories the more likely we are to be interested in it.

 If you feel your manuscript fits, send a one page query that tells us:

  1. About your book,

  2. How it fits in one of the above categories,

  3. About your previous work as a writer and any other qualifications you think we should know about

Right now we only publish non-fiction, so please no fiction or poetry queries.

We strive to reply to your query letter in two weeks.  If we ask for a full proposal please follow the guidelines below.
