"In our family, there was no clear line between religion and fly fishing,"

Last Sunday a monument dedicated to the Rev. John Maclean and his son's book was unveiled in front of the First Presbyterian Church in Missoula. Church members Thelma Hogan and Tom Finch conceived of the commemoration, which comes 100 years after Maclean became pastor in Missoula. He and wife Clara arrived in February 1909 from Clarinda, Iowa, with young sons Norman and Paul in tow.

Save the West..... Kill a Brookie

Here in the west brookies are a non native species that over run watersheds and threaten native bull trout and cutthroat. Chris Hunt of Trout Unlimited’s Sportsmen Conservation Project has a new blog that puts it in perspective, brook trout are threatened in the east and don't belong in the west.

Cape Light

Before heading home from the Cape last week I had a chance to hang and do some fishing with my friend and artist extraordinaire Mike Savlen. I had not seen Mike since he and Donna Lee moved away from Port Townsend a couple of years ago, so it was a real treat to be able to spend a couple of days with him before heading back home to Seattle.

We fished, soaked up the sights, sounds and smells of the salt flats.... and even managed to catch a couple of fish.

Prior to heading out the last morning we grabbed some Dunkin Donuts and hit the beach at Paine's Creek for some classic morning Cape Light. Mike added some of his signature artistic touches to a couple of great shots that he took that morning.

The light on the Cape, and on the flats in particular, rapidly changes. Throw a little morning fog into the mix and the expanse of sand merges with the sky.

"I could have sworn the mouth of the creek was that way."

To top it all off Mike hand delivered one of the Bragging Rights portraits that I commissioned him to do for my Mom.

She liked it.

Every trip back home to the Cape is special, this one was no exception.
