Cheap Thoughts


George Costanza said the best thing in the world would be to have sex while eating a pastrami sandwich. What would you combine with sex for the ultimate experience?

Fly-fishing. I'd have to remember to use a barbless hook.

Fish Dogs


An excellent take on fishing dogs by the top dog at Patagonia.

Talk all you want about so-called “advancements in fly fishing” -- ozone hole-depleting fluorocarbon leaders, boron rods with price tags equivalent to your monthly mortgage, and now waders with front zippers so you can relieve yourself while never having to vacate your coveted spot on the river…

Forget the fancy gear! What you really need to catch more trout, salmon or stripers is to get a good-tempered dog, the kind of dog that encourages you to get outside fishing all year long … a fish dog.

Excerpts of a Guide’s Journal: the Hexegenia Hatch


Some people outside the sport could mistake the behavior of fly fishers during the hatch as nothing less than a mystery cult. To a certain degree it is a fertility rite.  After all, that’s what a may fly is built for.  I’d like to think, on our river, the gathering of fly fishers for the Hex hatch is akin to the annual gathering of the old clans complete with feasts cooked out over open fires, conversation and story telling, and plenty of strong drink--kilts are optional.
