…..Being stuff gets you good, Good stuff gets you being and wheelin’ and dealin’ and squealin’!!!!!
Shit lives forever! Cuz shit lives forever!!!!!!”  So sayeth Faith No More on their memorable track, Cuckoo for Caca.

I have followed this slogan for my entire adult life (the album/track dropped in 1995, the year I left high school).  I now reap the rewards of Patton’s sage advise.

Now in my late 30’s, I’ve worked with some wicked-ass people like Allen Fly Fishing, Flood Tide Co., Bob Mitchel’s Fly Shop, Atmosphere and RSE, Mike and Chip on Brewing TV and Chop & Brew, Dibbs, and host of others.

To top it off, through the internetz, I can now collaborate and share with like-minded cats like my homies Zane Porter over at Fly Fishing Ruins Lives, Matt Greenwood, Pigfarm, and many others.

All because I have striven to “do good stuff” in the last 19 years.  It has indeed worked out.  My life is now surrounded by people who seem to share this philosophy.  We’re just trying to do good stuff.

Shit lives forever amigos.
