Orvis on the Kindle…

It looks as if Orvis have really embraced the old (or should that be new) Kindle generation:

Actually, I am geeky enough to own a [amazon_link id=”B007HCCOD0″ target=”_blank” ]Kindle[/amazon_link] and love it – unfortunately there are not a lot of quality fishing books on it. I kinda like reading fishing books on paper anyway.

Any of you guys own one?


I really enjoy reading your comments - say something!

    Do you have these books? Can you lend ebooks?

    Always looking for something new to read

    My son has a Kindle and though I enjoyed reading on it, I still prefer the look and feel of a book. Same with my Ipod, I like to listen to it when indoors but when I’m outdoors I much prefer the sounds of the countryside.

    Hey Campbell, I think there is a way to lend books via Kindle however I have no idea how – talking of paper books I have a couple that you may like. One by this chap:http://www.theflyfishingrabbi.blogspot.co.uk/ (at work just now so cannot get the name of the book) and another one actually on my Kindle.

    Ronnie, I remember once someone asked on a forum what music they like fishing too an I was kinda taken aback that someone would stick headphones in their ears instead of listening to the sounds of nature – I would rather listen to cars driving past and hear the odd bit of chatter than drown it out. The other problems with ebooks is that photos do not come out well – maybe when they get the technology really up an drunning and we have color ebooks you will see more fishing books on the kindle and it may seem more natural – who knows 🙂

    The main problem for me if wearing earphones and listening to music when fishing, is when someone comes up behind you and taps you on the shoulder – a wonderful laxative.
