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...

Last River Trip of 2014

I thought last week would be my last river trip of the year, but things worked out for me again this Tuesday. After sitting down on Monday and trying to figure out how I could make it happen, I opted for a quick trip down a stretch of river I have...

The Battle was On

Me vs. Mother Nature. It's been in the 90's with a few 100's over the past few weeks and will continue through the rest of the week. But today, my only day off, it started in the upper 40's with high winds and storms a brewin'. I knew this morning...

The Day O' Dinks

But what a great day it was. I'm starting to get days off again, so I always make the best of them...regardless of the ever present wind. I dropped the kids off and made the twenty mile trek to the river. I was on the water by 8:30. The wind was n...

Quick Trip on the Fly

This isn't really about flyfishing, but more about how quick things had to come together to get on the water. For the last 8 weeks we've been going 6-7 days a week. No time for fishing or much of anything else. I have done hours of day dreaming at wo...

Frustrating but Beautiful Day on the River

Pecos River 2013 Video

I finally had a chance to finish and upload our Pecos River video we took back in November. It is about 18 minutes long, which is quite long for youtube, but I felt I needed to leave it as it is and not edit anymore out. Mainly because, I remember wh...

A Quick Run for the River

Wednesday began as any other, work work work. Then at 12:30, I had the opportunity to leave and I flew out the door. I raced home, grabbed my yak and gear, and hauled to the river. I decided it was a fly fish only trip today. I was on the water by...

My Boy is becoming a Man

When the kids were real little, I used to say, "I can't wait until they get older so they can get out there with me and hold their own."My wife said, "careful what you wish for." It was just four short years ago my son, 8 at the time, got his fi...
