There’s an app for that


As much as I try my darnedest to segregate endeavors, I would be remiss if I didn’t announce the availability of my recently-launched apps for iPad: Olive the Woolly Bugger and Chuckin’ Bugs.

Olive the Woolly Bugger is an interactive book app based on my print book series. In addition to the entertaining and educational story, there are several interactive pop-up screens that describe certain aspects of fly fishing: fly patterns, insects, fish, water currents, etc. Additionally there are a bunch of fun animations to further entertain young readers.  Speaking of young readers, there are two modes for reading the app. Those old enough to read on their own can do so, while younger kids can have the story read to them thanks to recorded narration.

There is also a bonus feature included in the Olive app: Chuckin’ Bugs. This is a simple yet challenging game in which kids (and big kids) help Lefty Crayfish toss buzzing bugs to feeding fish. This game is also available as a standalone app.

Rather than tell you all about the apps, this video does a much better job of showing you.


Enter an easy contest to win free books

Sorry for the solicitation folks- I try to keep my book promotions to a very minimum here on the Unaccomplished Angler blog.  However, I find my resolve temporarily weakened.

Some of you may not even know that in addition to being a world famous, highly-paid blogger, I’m also a relatively unknown children’s fly fishing book author. If you’re interested in entering an easy contest and being placed into a drawing to win a set of autographed Olive the Woolly Bugger series of books (I’m giving away two sets), you have until midnight, September 30th to enter the contest. You stand a pretty good chance of winning as there have been only a handful of entrants so far.

All you have to do is jump over to my other blog and follow the directions.

I hope some of you will play along and enter to win.

And now I return you to your previously-scheduled programming, whatever that may be.
