I Was Hot On The Rabbit Trail But Lost My Scent

I was was intently searching my computer hunting for a superb fishing video of Little Chick catching trout on the Blackfoot this summer when I was thoroughly knocked off track by countless random photos I came across in what can only be described as a mysterious filing system I once created. Little Chick’s fishing story [...]

Rockstars and Rocks and Stars

September has been a whirlwind month with my “FFC Turns 40 World Domination Birthday Tour”. My head is spinning with all the tales I have to share. It all started in Atlanta with a fun-filled Labor Day weekend, cheering for the Tarheels in the Georgia Dome. Then the following weekend, Little Chick and I ventured [...]

Welcome the Genius Behind Kris Kristofferson

I’m serving up something a little different today on FFC: a Guest Blogger. My former boss, Mark McKinnon, is a celebrity political strategist, a creative juggernaut, uber-athlete, a warrior in the battle against cancer, a writer for The Daily Beast, and all-around cool cat. Oh yeah, and he used to be a songwriter for Kris [...]

Who Tequila Shot JR?

I drove up to Dallas yesterday to play with friends and celebrate Mothers Day Weekend in a somewhat unconventional manner. First I met my crew for lunch: After lunch (which consisted of copious amounts of wine & champagne) we all trotted down the block to the 2nd anniversary party at Tailwaters flyshop where we were [...]

Jalapeno Poppers Are Practically Kryptonite

I had this brilliant idea to roam around Austin with a video camera during South By Southwest, putting up FFFT posters while trying to catch a music celeb who might give us a little video testimonial to help promote the show. I thought I could film them saying something like, “When SXSW wraps up, pretty [...]

Let’s Light This Shit Up

I am in a mood. I am bored, exhausted and uninspired. Despite several straight days of gorgeous Texas Hill Country sunshine and balmy temperatures in the 60s and 70s, I seem to be in the vice-grip of a cruel mid-winter malaise. I awakened this morning ready to conquer the day with my typical enthusiasm and [...]

Is This Thing On?

Why is it so quiet in here?!?! Alright, I know I know. I’ve been radio silent. But to tell you the truth, I have a very good excuse… I just haven’t had a damn thing to say. No self-promoting fish pictures to broadcast, no play-by-play of days on the water with family and friends, no [...]

Where Everybody Knows Your Name

There’s only one place to go after a really swanky dinner….your local dive bar. And last Friday was no exception. I stepped out to a wonderful new restaurant called Olivia’s where I enjoyed delicious pan-seared scallops and a fantastic celebration with some of my most favorite people in the world. Plus, all the while I [...]

Marc Broussard Gave Me The Bird

This post doesn’t have a lick to do with fishing, but I thought I’d throw it in the mix nonetheless… If you’ve been following along, you know I recently launched WWLD 08. Also known as my own personal What Would Loretta Do Live Music Tour of the Texas Hill Country. Friday night I went to [...]
