  1. Endless Summer

    It kind of seems that way. Here at 29 degrees north lat.on the Texas coast, October is the time when chilled air from the arctic arrives. By the time these first fronts get here, there is no chill really, just a switch in the wind from south to north and a drop in the humidity.

    Some years, these first fronts arrive in September. September has come and gone and good riddance, as this yearís version vied for one of the worst ever. I had at least 25Ē of rain at my house, over 6 months ...

  2. The Fight........

    Blogs are a neat concept, I think so because this is a online space where I can air some thoughts without provoking a heated debate. If you are here then you had to choose to click so here's something I've wanted to write for years.

    I'm not sure how long ago it was but there was a point where I graduated from enjoying the feel of a fish struggling on my line to catching a fish. I can remember when I was still in the single digit age group when I reeled in this little chub and actually ...

Steve learned how to fly fish through our friendship but he didn't always go with me thus I still fished alone a whole lot. From the early days in my teens hiking deep into the mountains extending to today I'm constantly making an effort to avoid other fishermen and suspect many of us are this way and we all have our reasons.

  4. The Big Spruce

    So many times people have said to me, "I wish I had a place like that where I could just go and relax like you do". I've told them the truth, that being that if that;s what you really want there are plenty of them available. They are called Lodges and for anywhere from 3500 to 6200 per week you can go to a wilderness surrounding, fish, and at days end put your feet up and relax while you reflect on the day. But the cabin on the lake? Not the spot if relaxing is what you have in mind. ...

  5. What is it About the Surf

    That keeps me coming back?

    The surf knows how to dish out a beating, literally. Yesterday afternoon I was taking broadside after broadside, try casting a fly rod as a breaker taller than you knocks you off your feet. Body surfing combined with fly fishing, is that a sport?

    But I love it because I keep coming back for more. Fly fishing for the masochist. Actually, since I was maybe nine, Iíve been hooked on surf fishing. Itís taken different forms throughout the years, ...
