In truth, I spend much more time in front of a laptop or behind a camera than I do casting and reeling because, for me, the work comes first.

Each river, creek or lake we crossed on the way to the thermal oasis we found last Saturday was frozen solid. It is January after all. But upon reaching our destination, we found ice free emerald green flowing water.
