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.

Writings: Hot Flashes & Plucking At Wisps of Nature

  I came upon this wonderful piece of writing The Auguries of Innocence, over at Under Our Boot Soles. Give it a read and enjoy the humor, provocation of thought about nature and what is wild. Most people that visit this site are hell bent on getting as far from human contact as possible while wetting a line. Yet, I think most are equally capable of patiently indulging the back yard garden, tending to some live planting or admiring the changing leaves in a city park. It is good we slow down enough to enjoy the present rather than suffer wanderlust so often we look past the beauty, the ‘wilderness’ that was before us. Enjoy the link and be thankful if you don’t suffer hot flashes, because your Summers will be filled with relentless air conditioning and your Winters with open windows.
