On the eradication of wayward Macks - I like this piece because it came out, whole cloth, in about thirty minutes. Sometimes you're inspired to something, this was such a thing. And it won me a trip to Yellowstone with Trout Unlimited and the National Park Service.
Pot meet Kettle - My utter hypocrisy at fishing for large trout in privately stocked waters. But it was fun.
Black Friday - Traditions are a fine thing even when they don't go quite right.
Phriday Philosophy - Pegging beads. Fishing over spawning fish. Why do we do what we do?
Peace, Snow, Skunk - Fishing with Jonny for Steelhead in classic Steelhead weather.
Heard around the campfire - John Gierach's Coffee. My wit and literary skills continue to amaze me. Imagine that.
Stalking Small Mountain Streams - A small stream that I wished to fish for years and finally did.
Turkey Sandwiches and Fruitcake - There's something about the rituals of fishing with good friends that makes the beautiful places we go so much better.
Farm Pond - Just knowing simple places like this exist is almost enough. But not quite. Fishing them completes the picture.
On the water, Deerfield River, 9.12 - Fishing with my family. Nothing better.
Madison, Gallatin, & Cutty Creek - Ditto
Fishing the High Country - Ditto, and in the land of Adams, Muir, Bierdstadt.
The Small Town River - Channeling Hemingway for no other reason that to see if it were possible. And to tell a story of a nice hour or so of fishing.
On Outdoor Writing - Nothing gets writers fired up like when you talk about writing.
