In addition to being a world class fly fisherman and fly tyer, Dave is also a pretty fair speaker, photographer and fly fishing philosopher. Dave has launched his own blog which promises to add to the quality fly fishing conversation coming out of the New England area.

B2 and I are joining Ridings Jr. and Sr. for some Cook Inlet meat harvesting on July 12th/13th (out of Nanilchik). After we get our fix of barn-doors, we're ditching the boys from South Cackalacki, scrapping the broomsticks and picking up the 6 weights for some inland bushwacking on the Peninsula. Are there any Chum Junkies out there that:
a) Have the upper Kenai and/or Russian dialed in for bows this time of year (or any other Ace-Up-The-Sleeve flow)?
b) Any bored guides (foot or drift) that want to join the goofballs from Moldy Chum for a Sat/Sun (14th, 15th) flogging session?
Send us a note if you're down or if you have any scoop for our last minute wild hair. Free schwag to those who come strong to the hoop.

2 cups crushed ice
3 tablespoons pineapple juice
3 tablespoons coconut milk
1 ounce fresh Atlantic salmon
Salmon head (for garnish)
Blend all ingredients and garnish with a salmon head.
If anyone at the party starts talking about the importance of omega-3 fatty acids, merely gesture at your drink and say, “Eh? Eh? That enough for ya? Later in the evening, give your salmon head a name and have it deliver monologues on the commercialization of independent cinema or why the French Laundry is past its prime. VIA Chow LINK
