Effective Stillwater Fly Fishing by Michael Gorman

I have read work by Michael Gorman before related to stillwater (lakes) entomology. I was impressed not only with the clinical thoroughness of the effort but by the practicality of it as well. This new book by Michael Gorman promises to be equally beneficial to my learning and I look forward to getting it soon. Mike is an Oregon based angler and is well versed in all aspects of fly fishing.

MGorman StillwaterOn the back cover of the book is a comment, which I particularly appreciate: “Gorman approaches stillwater fly fishing as a puzzle and views challenging days as a chance to put together the pieces and enjoy the most cerebral, rewarding parts of the sport.”

That, for me, is the essence of the sport and keeps it in the proper perspective…as an ongoing learning experience. I think this would be an excellent addition to your library as well as mine.

Bonfires: Primitive Celebration……….

photography-bonfire-camping-montana-theresa muncy-swittersbBonfires (Bone Fires) go way back and a little research reveals they rate right up there for fertility, Beltane, (crops/humans), keeping bad spirits at bay, welcoming positive, seasonal changes, celebrating the pending victory over a rival (combat, sports) and on & on.  The campfire usually stays contained and lower (suitable for conversation, day dreaming, warmth) But, the bonfire draws out images of pagan energy and perhaps intoxication? Watch those sparks! Almost looks to be headless torso rising up out of the flames.
