Who I Am

...without love in the dream, it'll never come true.  

Thank you for checking out my site. I'll keep it short and sweet.

I started writing because I reached a stage in my life where I wanted to create, not just consume, fishing writing.

I have the utmost respect for my elders. Whether they're in the classroom, or chasing waves or fish. I will always honor them. But now I want to make my own contribution.

I work to keep my posts honest and efficient; sharing my experience and one or two simple takeaways. Tips that would've helped me in the past, before I learned the hard way.

I don't want foamlines to dissolve. I'm going to fish and surf for the rest of my life. I want foamlines, and you, to come along.

I'll stay away from hyper-poetic posts, fish tallies, or fly lists.

Please read and comment. I hope my writing, as Bruce Brown said, puts you in "grin-and-nod mode."

Maybe we'll shake hands on the water.
