Anyone know how to get a book republished? Not wanting to ruin anyone's fortunes, i just think that there may be a substantial market for it...

I thought Alberta Outdoorsmen Magazine, purchased Barry Mitchell Publications. Is it AOM that produces and publishes the Barry Mitchell Alberta Fishing guide?

I always wondered why someone hasn't scanned their book and put it out there as a PDF. The book is no longer in print so not harming anyone. Any takers?

You always wondered? Never heard of copyright infringement?

Its really not a life changing book. Here is a summary for you:
If its a stream, and its west of hwy 43, 22, or 6, its probably got trout in it.

Right on. But you could have charged at least $50 per hit with that info and made a fortune from the believers!
