The temps are holding steady in the 50’s.  What the hell?  I’m not complaining, this extended Fall has been fantastic.  It’s made the fishing pretty sweet.  More chances to get out, and the fish are around, some really big fish in fact.

Keeler Spent Some Time Away

So, months have gone by. I’ve been moving the family into the burbs, traveling and doing the grind for work, and generally living a pretty domesticated life citizens.  A dude’s gotta have priorities.  Fortunately, I’ve found time to keep plugging away at some new works, and here and there I’ve dragged the boy out to fish with grandpa; those were…

The Phantom – August 15th

Super pumped to share this – “The Phantom” will be available for purchase on August 15th from Flood Tide Co. A while back, fellow fly-fisherman and rad-artist Paul Puckett (check out his work) asked me if I’d be down to contribute some art to Flood Tide’s fall line of clothing.  Of course I jumped at the chance, as I dig…

New Works

I was away, drinking homebrews from around the country, talking to some Swedish dude about how to manage homebrewing organizations…drawing in the margins, finding a new love for the music of All Them Witches, and drinking more beers again and again and again from Founders. Got back to All Them Works…cheers amigos.

The Phantom & Summit in Cans

Two things: 1. The above piece is a bit overdue to share – be on the look out for it elsewhere sometime in 2014… 2. Summit Extra Pale Ale and Saga now come in cans (as does their Summer Ale) – this has redefined my beer consumption.  I love can.

Keep movin’

Well amigos, it’s been hard to put time towards the ol’ art, fishing and brewing lately.  Tons of work travel, more work, house stuff, family stuff and a general tripping & fumbling into Spring. Has it always been this way?   Probably. Spring has become my favorite time of the year (minus the garage and basement occasionally taking on water).  Forever…

Bugger Hatch 2014

It was time again for the annual Bugger Hatch.  The time of year right after the big thaw, and raging chocolate milk flows, when the water temps tick up and the troutz starting getting their feed-bag on. Mixed results this time around; plenty fish seen feeding both on the surface with a good BWO hatch around 1pm, and below surface…

Returning to The River

The time finally came to return to the river after a brutal Midwestern Winter.  The first day on the water for the year is always special, no matter the outcome.  As I drove east on highway 94, I suspected that many people in the colder regions of the US would experience the same ritual over the first few weeks of…
