breaking news

coming soon from the rodde shoppe the wrocks
well I've got some pics at least
and doing a few things differently

and then there's this...
I'll have to wait and settle in to respond to this nonsense 
with elegance grace and humility

I suppose I'm perceived as a threat of some sort
perhaps because I know the dictator well enough to know he's full of shit

these guys

remind me of
of mice and men

and have so many great one-liners
w/ great music to go alongside
that too try to list some is superflous
anyways, they have another one
kinda like the other one

only to find the waters running w/ mud
and no fish to hand or sight
a lovley day to be out and about nevertheless

and candyass anglers

dig it...

this too, is something I rarely do
  but the points are good and important, even vital 
it is well worth the fifteen minutes required to listen
take it to heart
it could even improve your life
it has mine

God I love to cook 
and feed people
it is a big part of what makes us human

oh yeah - you should buy and read his books too

utter ridiculousness

and tiresome
how can you play the game when there are no rules
and then they change

it is not really in my nature to do such things, but...


blahdeefucking blahblah

fuck you buddy

thanks to epol @ bwtf for the above image

just another bluebird day on the rim

too little water (6'8" 2 wt degere taper)
twas warm - I had to remove a layer

the hike in
looks like a tree fell over the trail
scary scenario?  yes

dumbass creek
beautiful water nice clarity

I did say it was a bluebird day
the rim is beautiful

blooded the easy way (6'8" 3 wt thomas taper)
josh said while casting, "whoa, it's like a slingshot, just fires the line"

thought I missed the fish but I see his back there
nice rainbow

the hike out
