Winter Has Arrived

Winter Has Arrived

A couple of weeks back, I was able to run up north for a quick night with my good friend Alex.  I was able to marry Alex to his bride, Christy, in early October and I was excited about our first chance to get away, catch up, and catch fish!  There was an ulterior motive in this trip…when I had last been in this country, it had been 5 weeks earlier and I was blessed to be able to harvest a great bull elk.  We didn’t have an adequate rangefinder when I took the...

Skinny Water Escapades

Early this week, I had a chance to get out of town.  I was thrilled to be invited by a local Christian school to attend their freshmen/sophomore “Man Camp” a couple of hours north of Phoenix for a few days.  I would be spending these days with approximately 160 high school guys.  Knowing the chaos and unceasing noise that would inevitably be involved, I decided to leave town early, hit up a small Arizona stream, and then meet up with them as the buses...

Under the Big Sky (Part 2)

Man, it’s taken me longer than I wanted to get to this second day, but I guess it’s better late than never! After our first day in Montana fishing the East Fork and catching my first cutthroat (and second, and third, and….etc.), we were excited for this first day on the main stretch of the Bitterroot.  This would be our (mine and my dad’s) first time ever fishing from a raft, so we were excited to experience it!  Our “guide”, Paul...

Under the Big Sky (Part 1)

In mid-July, my Dad and I had an amazing opportunity to visit some friends who were renting a home and visiting family near Corvallis, Montana.  This was one of the times and opportunities that I feel like have come along before in life and, though plans are discussed, the follow-through doesn’t happen and you find yourself weeks/months/years later saying, “Man, why didn’t I take advantage of the opportunity and _____________fill in the...

“Head downstream from the Porta-Potty”

“Head downstream from the Porta-Potty”

These aren’t exactly the words you want to hear when heading to a new fishing spot.  In fact, those are words I’d never want to hear in any situation, fishing or not.  But alas, this was not a figure of speech.  In fact, as we drove out of Phoenix at a ridiculous time of morning, I even thought to myself, “I wonder if “Porta-Potty” is the nickname of a really deep hole in the stream….maybe one with swirling water?” Nope.  Turns...

The Companies I Keep [Pt. 2]

The Companies I Keep [Pt. 2]

A few weeks ago, I decided to begin a series of posts (I’m not sure how many….maybe endless) to highlight some of the equipment I’m using on the water.  These won’t be full product reviews (my hope is to have some of those later), but rather very general assessments of some brands and products.  I am not receiving anything in exchange for highlighting these companies…I am just trying to provide some people with another resource or perspective...
