First of January.

It’s tough writing about fishing. I’ve tried- pricking willows at the head of emerald colored pools, western dries bounding along the edge of spruce sweepers.

But when you’re fishing you think about fishing, instead of thinking about writing about fishing.


  1. Yes but sometimes out on the river a phrase plays around in my head because I believe in the power of words to capture a moment.
    Then I write it down on a scrap of paper. Or on my hand in a smartphone note or I’ve even asked my wife to whatsapp me something.
