My little lab is growing like a weed. He’s 5 months old and pushing 50 pounds of floppy skin and huge feet. When I bought my house I lucked out and moved in next to great neighbors who also farm. Their farm has a stocked pond and the fishing is great, but I digress. Yesterday…Read details
The recipe for a great day on the water. That’s it. Last weekend John, Don, and I took the Towee out for it’s maiden voyage. It was a damned good day. John and Don both picked up on rowing quickly and that made it awesome for me cause then I could fish. Whoever said buying…Read details
It’s spring. Sort of. It’s been a kind of bi-polar spring which should be expected in Indiana, I guess. I recently spent a day on the water with my buddy Scott. The water was still cold, hovering right in the high forties. The smallies are waking up from their winter vacation. I brought three to…Read details

Yesterday was the spring equinox! Finally, after a long and seemingly endless winter, I heard birds chirping and saw some early hatches off the creek behind the house. Soon the waters will warm, the Towee will come out of hibernation, and the fishing will be on fire. The dogs enjoyed this weather by playing in…Read details
Back in January a friend’s dogs had a litter. The dad is a chocolate and the mom is a black lab. Six puppies were born. Two died, one right after birth, the other three days later. Two chocolate and two black labs were left. The two blacks were picked quickly by other friends. The two…Read details
If you’re in the Lafayette, Indiana area on Monday nights you need to stop by People’s Brewing Company for a beer and some fly tying. We’re there from 6pm until 8pm tying flies and telling a whole bunch of lies. Spring is going to be here soon so get those smallie patterns ready!
The new Revive is out. I have a little piece in it. It’s got me dreaming of warmer weather and longer days on the water.
