LEIDERMAN RODS - An Epic 686 with All the Details

I learned a long time ago that when you are working with a small shop custom fly rod builder that they can get really into a build when the customer doesn't fence them them in with too many "Do this..." and make sure that you "Don't do this...".  Some of the most cherished custom built fly rods in my own collection came from starting the conversation with the builder with no preferences as I didn't want to hold the artist's hand.That said, Matt Leiderman of Leiderman Rods had full artistic contr...

Are You a Collector?

It piques my curiosity when I learn that someone is a collector, and the revelation of the object they collect is a window into who they are. There’s always a story behind the passion to collect a certain thing. What is it about that object that a person loves so much that they gather dozens (or hundreds)? Often it’s something to do with a fond memory from childhood. Somewhere along the way they became attracted to a particular thing and as a result began collecting it. Matt is a numismatist, he...

Trump Swamp: Interior Sec. Calls Corporations He Regulates ‘My Clients… My Former Clients’

The American Prospect’s David Dayen late last week noted what he called President Donald Trump’s “most nakedly corrupt tweet”: an appeal to Congress to reject a bill giving tribal sovereignty over 321 Interior-Department-controlled acres to the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe in Massachusetts. Or as the President described it, “a special interest casino Bill, backed by Elizabeth (Pocahontas) Warren.” The tribe wants to build a casino on the land, which would be just minutes away from two nearby compe...

Christianity is no longer the dominant religion in many places where it used to be, giving way to a secularist worldview under which more and more people are seeing religious faith and morality as not only optional and outdated but even disagreeable. The concept of morality can be difficult to ...
