As of recent I’ve had some significant life changes come about my way. Truthfully though they may have come about at the right time. I won’t speak directly of what they are just yet because you only need to know that they have humbled me and given me a second chance to venture even further into a life of what I cherish. When I was young I believe I started on a walkabout of sorts and simply put I’m seeing now that it may never be completed. Theres so much out there within this country (and beyond) that it would be an injustice to simply live stagnate and never explore it. Keep in mind this could simply be a walk to the store or a hike through the forest you pass ten times a day, just seeing it first hand and being within those moments I feel you’ll find that sense of reality, adventure and a deeper appreciation of life.
You will begin to notice some changes, more writing and discussions on my trials and tribulations on the water to be precise. I figured what the hell? I’m usually documenting my outings each trip why not share them here in more detail. I will try to keep it interesting and although hunting for fish to eat a fly is nothing new, I’d like to offer my perspective for beginners looking for advise and experts looking for a laugh. I will be challenging myself to post a minimum of once a week, and it will be more of an article of sorts and explanations with hypothesis of what I believe worked or didn’t. Feel free to chime in and add to the mix when you’d like, I will never turn down humor and or advise from an expert or overlook a single comment if possible. I will keep a log of conditions each day on the water such as temperatures, Tides (coefficients and heights), moon phases and weather. If I do my part we’ll hopefully begin to find more truth and understanding through physical research and hopefully draw an understanding of what days are best for kitchen passes (for my friends with families and wives).

Wild, in essences we all are. Sometime between our everyday rat race and simply finding a temporary escape we’ve lost something dear to us, nature. I make it a point to spend as much time as possible outdoors when I can. My morning starts like any other. My thoughts run wild with ideas of where to go and what to do. I spent the afternoon walking through my local forest with the hopes of clearing my mind last weekend. Most of these trips more or less turn into lost thoughts. taking photos of my surroundings and wondering how to improve on who I am as a person. I simply want to just improve on who I am and what I can do to make this place better.
