that would be me....

I am on the river whenever I can...or in the surf of course...my second home! Cold feet are a problem at times, but with liner socks and wool layered over I am usually fit for the day.

I love winter fishing. Usually the water warms up on sunny afternoons and steelhead will hold in flats behind pools/holes and become active. Also, many hatches occur and winter stones such as allocanpia and tainytoperyx larvae begin to drift. ANother great bonus is I can sleep in and when I get to the river, I am usually alone unless I am with a few of my friends.

Ahhh...nomad, I don't know if I would say I am that....I like to say I am more of a beachbum....

Look for me where the waves crash!
