Beaver Island randomness...
I suppose that this should really be called The Photo Bin - Beaver Island Edition. So be it. It's been too hot since my return to get out to gather anything else anyway. Here, then, is a random smattering of images from around island. A hodgepodge of motifs. A nonsensical collection, when you ...

Punching above my weight class...
I've said it before but it bears repeating. Authoring a "fly fishing blog" carries no presumption of competence on the water. I am, at best, an average angler and, at worst (and more likely), a guide's cold-sweat nightmare. I know just enough to be dangerous and my casting skills have plateaued ...

You know what they say...
Gonna rain in an hour. Gonna rain hard. He'd pulled through the boat ramp with his F-150 and trailer of canoes and made the pronouncement like it was the end of the world. We nodded and kept loading the boat. He wasn't the only one with a weather app. After a minute, he shrugged and drove off, ...

Saying goodbye.
For the past few years, the last thing I've done each and every evening has been to pick him up from his bed in the living area, carry him down the back deck's steps into the yard for one last wobbly constitutional, and then return him gently to his kennel in my office for the night.

People. As has been recently noted, Mary says I don't put enough of them in my photographs. She's usually right about such things (a most troublesome characteristic, I assure you) so I'll try to do better in this month's bin. Pictures with people... I'll start with a goodbye, of sorts, ...

Hell yes.
 So, I found myself in a rut.  A very deep rut, and looking ahead it seemed to go on for miles without deviation. Perhaps we have all been there.  You just can't seem to nab the mojo, and plod along like an extra in a zombie ...

We drift quietly to the lee side, set the anchors, and slip over the aluminum gunnels into the cool turquoise water. Crystal clear. Rocky bottom. Surface slick as glass. Smallie haunts. But being a day short of the smallmouth season opener, we wade instead to shore and dive into the dense, ...

Most excellent! Great to see you getting back on the water.
It was a picture perfect day when I woke up this morning.  Like so many recent picture perfect days, the first thing on my mind was going fishing.  Unlike those other times, I actually loaded up and drove away from my house. ...

Thanks Mike!  Getting out on the water makes my life normal again.

Give it to me straight, doc. It's bad, isn't it? Well, there's definitely a problem. Tenderness. A bit of swelling. The early onset of some significant subcutaneous bruising. Does it hurt when I press here? [unprintable response] Okay. It's near your appendix, but I don't think that's the issue.

What do the pictures that you take say about you? In an ongoing effort to improve my photography, I have begun to attend a small county-based camera club. (There are, no doubt, many of you who think I should join a writing group as well, but one impossible task at a time, if you please.) ...

A spot of good news...
It appears that a follow-up is in order. In response to your hundreds of concerned emails (well, Jim B. did write to inquire of his loaned headlamp), I'm happy to relay that the reports of poor Troy's demise were greatly exaggerated. He awoke on the 2nd in a seedy motel just outside of Clayton, ...

Fishing down the rabbit hole...
“Be sure to bring your headlamp.” It was an odd instruction given that I was to meet him at noon. Everything else he'd suggested – sturdy boots, rugged clothes, large dark streamers – made sense. “And a 7 or 8wt. But it needs to be short.” I've visited a lot of odd places with Troy.

Car buying made easy. We threw some curves in the process but our salesperson, Brian Wilson, fielded them all with a smile and made things work. We love our new Forester and the low-key process that helped put it in our garage. THANKS!!!
