Introduction

I fish. I go through phases. I caught my first fish when I was about four years old. For many years I fished with a fly rod. Then I got hooked on bass fishing. For years, in the wintertime, I traveled to Florida to catch tons of huge bass in the wonderful lakes throughout the region. But all things change.

Several years ago my good friend, artist Barney Bellinger, told me to give him a thousand dollars. He said it was for new fishing gear. So I gave him the money. I didn't argue. I just gave him the money. The following morning he showed up with two new fly rods, reels, and all kinds of related gear. That was it
