OCTOBER 10, 2018

It’s was a busy summer that didn’t include as much fishing as I would have liked. I spent a good portion of my time in front of the computer working on new writing projects, updates to older books and meeting deadlines. More news on that later in 2019.

The good news is that I have managed to get out this fall. I had cutthroat trout on the brain and that led me into the high country where I’ve spent the last three weeks hiking into lakes renowned for larger cutts. My success catching those cutts is about what you’d expect considering how finicky high lakes can be. Bottom line is when the trout were on, I caught them. When they weren’t, I practiced my casting. Anyhow, it’s all history now. It’s snowing in the high country and I’ll be switching my focus to the the autumn Blue-winged Olive hatches on the South Platte River and the Frying Pan.

I’ll be speaking, tying small flies and teaching my nymphing class at all seven Fly Fishing Shows in 2019. Check “Events & Shows” for the dates and cities. I’ll also speak at a Fly Fishing club here and there and hope to set up some small fly tying classes and demos here in Colorado.

Finally, I’ve been considering reviving my popular Lone Angler Journal Blog. Let me know what you think.
