GETTING AFTER IT

Updated: Jul 10

It’s been a busy summer for house-projects, travel and work. Four months have already passed since I made the jump from the agency world to freelance-dome and it feels like it’s been years…in a good way.


Over the next month or so I’ve got a significant amount of writing to do about a few significant trips from this busy summer: • The IFTD show that I just attended in New Orleans (watch for reports from Cameron over at The Fiberglass Manifesto and Alex at 40 Rivers to Freedom, as well as Midcurrent and Angling Trade). • My upcoming trip west to fish in Idaho (hell yea!) • Our week in the Adirondacks (which I’ve already been putting up some poetry from).

So, stay tuned as the busy-ness rolls on.
