Getting into a new line of work; Creative director for DRYFT

You may have noticed a lack of new content on my blog of late. There’s a good reason for this. It’s called DRYFT. Our goal is to produce a line of technical fishing gear with something new, style. We’re still deep the product testing and development phase at this point but trust me, it’ll be well worth the wait. We

If you don’t know what it is, bonk it!

While fishing on the Olympic Peninsula recently I had a rather interesting encounter with a fellow angler. It started out like many river meetings do, exchanging a few fishing tips, comments on the weather and so on. The conversation turned to fish he had caught over the weekend.

Pass Lake in a rush…

Never try to tie a nail knot when you’re already late. I don’t know about you folks, but I’ve struggled with nail knots for a long time. Only now after 17 years of fishing have I finally gotten the hang of them. Add a looming deadline and I’m all thumbs and can’t tie one to save my life… Location: Pass
