Chalkstream and Bonneville Creek Photo Montage

Weather Stinks – No Fishing

Bad weather and no fishing makes me head south for some camping, warmer temps and beautiful scenery in Capitol Reef National Park.

Recent Storm Blues

Spring is a temptress, toying with the hearts of anglers. It’s enough to bring on the blues. (In word and music.)

Artist – Nick Mayer – Escape Studio

Nick Mayer’s watercolor artwork at Escape Studio. Nick’s pieces have a “technical” feel to them, with a clean, precise look, but the watercoloring softens them, bringing a warmth and aliveness to each piece.

Winter River Walks

The temperature inversions in our valley have one positive affect: some incredible hoar frost (radiation frost) builds up. As I wait for ice and joints to thaw, and fish to move, I walk the valley.
