A Long Four Months

I didn't realize how hard it was going to be to keep up with the various blogs i'm either doing solo or as a collaboration. They are all around outdoors, kayaks, and fishing, but each has a different purpose, and strangely, different audiences. Unfor...

Unexpected Run to the River

After doing some maintenance work on the site, I realized for some reason this story never published here from a few weeks ago. I had posted on a kayak fishing forum and our Trailing Hook Journal site, but didn't realize it never got posted here. So...

A Quick Morning Fly

After two and a half weeks with no days off, I was able to make a short run to the river on Tuesday. I had a very short amount of time to go, but really needed to work on some river film projects i’ve put on the back burner because of my schedul...

Catching A Break

I had come to terms with the fact I wasn’t going to get out fishing for a while. It’s already been two weeks and I figured it would be a few more. But around 8pm last night, a few things changed. I was released from prior obligations and sudde...

Crazy few weeks

It's amazing how everything seems to hit all at once, then goes away just as quick. Christmas time was less than fun with my wife's mother in ICU and making the 3 hour round trip nearly everyday. My wife stayed up there, but work was so busy so I cou...

Last River Trip of 2014

A Peaceful Day Off

I'm one of those people who seem to have a hundred things going at once. I'm usually getting pulled in every direction and sometimes it can be a little overwhelming. About 10% is actual work related, and the other 90% is things i'm passionate abou...

Pecos River Teaser

 As time keeps moving on, there are so many things that fall by the wayside, never to be thought of again. Or at least not for a long time. The Pecos River trip back in June is not one of those things. I think about it often. Not as much about t...

A Well Needed Day Off

 It's been nearly six weeks since I have been able to get on the water. Work has gone crazy and you have to get it while you can. Hopefully this will be the longest stretch until next year. It's always tough around this time, but six weeks real...

Fishing the South Concho

 Our day started off with a major setback as my son and I prepared for an all day fishing marathon on the river. We knew this would be the last opportunity we'd have to fish like this because of school starting and my job about to get crazy. It...

Pic of the Day

I'm so glad that my friend Bert was able to get off the river with his camera. What that means for me is that there are actually a few photos of me on the trip. It's always tough when you're always the photographer to ever get photos of yourself. I'v...
