    Monday, March 17, 2014

    OSCAR MOTEL GULF we just had the best trip to the Bahamas! Last week was spring break so Tom, Sophie and I traveled to Exuma along with my parents. It was a week filled with fishing, food, friends and family – basically this post is brought to you by the letter “F”. F IS FOR [...]

    The Last Best Retrace

    Tuesday, September 17, 2013

    I know, I know, it’s been forever since I’ve posted. And I have missed you! It was a fantastic summer juggling family trips with near-obsessive work on my next book. Whew. As of yesterday the manuscript is safely tucked away with the editor, so I have some breathing room to come back to FFC and chat [...]

    Whale Tale

    Wednesday, June 5, 2013

    Over Memorial Day weekend in Montana I had the chance to fish the Big Hole with my dad for a day. We spent most of the float discussing art history in preparation for our big family trip to Italia. Because he is more scholarly than I, he has done infinitely more homework. So I felt [...]

    Fifty Shades of Grayling

    Monday, May 27, 2013

    The steamiest part of our chilly weekend on the water was a streamer that looked suspiciously like Kelly Galloup’s ‘Sex Dungeon’ fly. Hmmm… So we have just returned from a fantastic Memorial Day in Montana where summer kicked off with hail, lightening, and snow – as it always seems to do on our Memorial Day [...]

Hook ‘Em

Yesterday was another great day in the Texas Hill Country. I fished the Guadalupe with a few friends, and we had an absolute blast. A front had moved in the night before so the fishing was a little off kilter at first. The wind stayed strong throughout the day, but when the sun eased up, [...]

The More Things Change…

The Guadalupe River, circa 1975. Between The Hunt Store and Crider’s.   The Guadalupe River, circa this past Monday morning. Between the alarm clock and my todo list.

Sound Presidential Soundbites

I cannot tell a lie. I had to sneak away this morning and do a little fishing on the Guadalupe. Between flu bugs and birthday parties and bronchitis and thunderstorms, it’s been hard to find time on the water. So I decided to play hooky this morning – in the name of Presidents’ Day of [...]

I’ve Got No Beef With Jesus, I Promise.

Sometimes my day-to-day life as a PTA mom doesn’t always mesh with my fishing world. I used to have one of these Scott fish stickers on my car.   But I took it off when I learned that some of the parents at my daughter’s school thought I was making fun of this fish sticker. [...]

Lone Star Trout

Back in the 1960′s executives at the Lone Star Brewery were no longer satisfied with simply stocking Hill Country bars with beer, so they began stocking The Guadalupe River with trout. I’ve heard it was a publicity campaign. I’ve also read that these were executives who liked to flyfish and simply wanted to be able [...]
