Don’t Tell Little Chick’s Teacher Why Her Homework Isn’t Finished

Tonight Little Chick and I attended a Casting for Recovery benefit where they premiered the fishing film RISE after a two-hour fly fishing mixer. Local clubs, shops, authors and guides were all in attendance and it was a nice escape to chat and relax. I’m not sure when or how, but in the food court [...]
