Howdy folks. I haven't been around here much in 2017. Wasted most of my energy on "social media." Trapper sent an invite for Trapfest next weekend, which reminded me I needed to come back! (Unfortunately, I already have an anniversary event planned with Mrs. Fading Angler next weekend. 23 years!)

I'm sure Eddie thought I was stalking him early in the year when he saw me at the FFF in River Falls and at the Great Waters expo. Big thanks to Mr. Frick for sending a few Fixes my way (but I have to admit I'm still wearing a skunk stripe when fishing with streamers... Blushing )

Trapper, thank you for letting me tag along with you on the first day of Troutstock when I dropped in. Hoping we can do some wandering on your home waters next year. It was also cool meeting Nick, Shebbs, and a couple other folks from here on the DTA.

Having neurosurgery makes you grateful for a lot of things. I'm glad I lived to fish another year! ThumpUp

If you've got nothing else to do right now, drop over to my blog and read the harrowing tale of how I survived 2017! It's got John Gierach, beer, gory photos, even a shark!

Hello, beastie...

Wishing you all "The Big One" in 2018... As in "big fish," not "Red Fox"...
