while working on the book

Ran across this finishing up the latest book.         I don't know, I just like this pic of La Jara Creek. We didn't catch much in this stretch but we were the only anglers for 25 miles and we had a great campsite so it didn't matter.  Sometimes, it's really not about the fishing.

16th Book Due Date Closing In

This is what it looks like, that crazy why-did-I-wait-so-late stage a week before a due date.  Notes, Pandora, Cab, cigar, 78 degree weather in my backyard.  Five rivers of forty-nine left to complete.  First coffeetable book, full-color pics and all.  I say it everytime but this one will be the one I'm most proud of.  Til the next one.  Due out this Spring -- 49 Trout Streams of Southern Colorado from University of New Mexico Press.

Writing and Writers

Tonight I had the pleasure of visiting Dr. Mike Bellah's Creative Writing class at Amarillo College.  I carried on and blathered about writing and me and fishing and me some more til they got tired of it and we got to why I really come to Bellah's class (and also allow him to buy me dinner) -- they student's esssays/novels/poems/screenplays/ramblings.  Great stuff.  The writing world's future is in good hands.  Reminds me of why I wanted to be a writer.  And still do.
