I often tell anglers who email about not liking a certain glass fly r...

Night Skiing in Utah

Looking to change things up one evening with a friend or the kids? Night skiing has been a fun “go-to” for us when the timing is right. Especially over those Christmas, winter, or spring breaks.

Violet Leaf Tisane

After receiving a notification that a package had been delivered, I decided that since it was a sunny day I would walk the quarter-mile to the end of our driveway in order to retrieve it. I was very happy I’d done so, as to my great surprise I found wild violets already blooming! The unusually sunny weather we’ve been experiencing for the last few days where I’m at has caused a “false spring” of sorts. Knowing that the forecast advises we might even get snow next week, I decided to retrieve my...

A Handshake in the Canadian Badlands

I was going through all the motions…it had been a whirlwind travel day of moving, moving, moving. We did introductions quickly in the parking lot and shook hands. I never thought of myself as hurried – until I went to pull away from the handshake and he took his other hand and cupped it around both of hands and shook it collectively, very slowly. Everything suddenly went into slow motion. As we shook hands slowly and deliberately I was suddenly aware I had been rushing, frenzied, and stressed. W...
