Thank you all for the kind words about my words! Steven, also for the big props!
Far & Away will be "going away" end of this month, unfortunately. We decided we couldn't carry it on, because submissions dried up. My work on a regular basis can be found at www.native-waters.com.
Dee, you're so right, it isn't always about the fishing at all. Most times it's not, really. Catching is always nice, but not prerequisite.
Again, thanks for the warm welcome! Though it's pretty much over until the spring around here, I hope to have more to share then.
"And look at Elias Wonder. Yeah, take a gander at that buzzard. Forty years ago he was happy, generous, charitable, tall, dark and handsome. Then he took up the fly rod. Now consider him. Uglier than fresh road kill. Evil-eyed, cantankerous, sullen, mean. An anti-social misfit that causes a groundswell of spleen wherever he goes."
