This is a story about an old Buzzard. Life was beating him up. Everything seemed chaotic. Family members taking advantage financially in the court room; bad business dealings; Rino’s in the senate; girls wanting to be boys and boy’s wanting to be girls. Kids thinking they are cats and need a litter box at the school. Satan is in the White House with his two sisters. Can it get any worse the old Buzzard cries out. He’s one step away from a game of Russian roulette when he calls to the Lord “please help me, I think I’m going crazy.” more

Just a few more days and that winter desert otherwise known as January will have been crossed and my sights can be set on spring. more
My dad taught me just about everything I ever needed to know about fishing, from starting me early with a riverbank sapling and length of fishing line to teaching me the finesse of handling his classic bamboo fly rod. Under Dad’s diligent tutelage I grew up an avid fisherman. more
