Second book- to be released March 2018:

First I wrote the advanced book, now I'm writing the beginner's book.

Volunteer Projects

American Casting Association
Besides writing the ACA casting book, I'm sorting and organizing all the photo/audio media from the 1940s to 2000 from ACA's Netherton Archive and Collection. Digitizing and sharing could take me a couple years!

Mianus Chapter of Trout Unlimited
I'll be heading a stream clean-up and invasive plant removal on my local West Branch of the Saugatuck River this spring.

Fishing

I had an incredible time dry-fly fishing on Hebgen and the Madison in MT. Captain Michael Platt and I are now targeting gator blues in the LI Sound. Next cloudy day I'll be out looking for trout eating blue-winged olives in CT. Alan Gnann has invited Steve Rajeff and me to fish with him in October on the Sound. We'll be looking  for the last of the Albies and maybe some stripers. The next day we're going to the CFFCM for Steve's Induction into the CFFCM Hall of Fame.

New Site Colors Taken from GLoomis Fly Rod

color swatches The background is cork colored, the main font color is from the anodized reel-seat and the nav buttons and copyright bar are the blank, windings and logo colors. I did this with the use of the Adobe Color CC app and camera on my iPhone. Since I have an Adobe Creative Cloud account, the color swatches appeared in my other Adobe color panels automatically!
