Fly Fishing + Art (the obligatory post…but with a different ‘spin’)

Boys-at-the-Bridge by Dean Crouser

Boys-at-the-Bridge by Dean Crouser

Stereotypical thinking….we all fall into this. Recently, I was walking through the Portland Sportsman’s Show. I had already encountered the vivacious April Vokey, so my son and I were a bit off kilter at that point. There before us was a recognizable man painting away at one of those familiar booths filled with beautiful art we usually cannot afford. The man was Dean Crouser. Known to my son Tony and I from Track and Field..the optimum word being ‘Field’. In Tony’s younger years (he’s only 19 now) he had a strong desire to throw discus and javelin. We attended the Mt. Hood Relays each year in Gresham, Oregon…an always impressive display of US Track talent. In these meets, there would be Dean Crouser propelling out the shot with the many of the best in the world. Motivation is the point of attending these events and the Crouser family was and is renowned in Oregon Track for the throw events. So, here was a giant of a man seated with a delicate brush in his hand creating beautiful pieces of outdoor art..especially fly fishing art. Dean’s work is impressive and worthy of anyone’s wall..in any lodge, shop, office or home. Also, he is one hell of a nice man sans any ego or facade. Check out his work…if you can swing it or know someone who can…find a piece that resonates and buy it. His prices are extremely reasonable.

Best Fishing Drift Almost Ruined Again (Your DISH Satellite is farther away than this)

And, you were sitting around tying flies, wondering what pithy thing to post in your blog and you were oblivious to how close you came to your favorite drift becoming a new Lake Baikal. 

PASADENA, Calif. — An asteroid about the size of one that leveled more than 800 square miles of forest in Siberia a century ago just buzzed the Earth. The asteroid named 2009 DD45 was about 48,800 miles from Earth when it zipped past early Monday, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory reported. That is just twice as high as the orbits of some telecommunications satellites and about a fifth of the distance to the Moon.

“This was pretty darn close,” astronomer Timothy Spahr of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics said Wednesday.
