"Any other advice you'd like to add for our readers interested in writing professionally?" asked the interviewer.

Big Brown, Small Fly

Looking through some old photos, my old setter Radar snoring away on the office couch next to me. Caught this big Pennsylvania brown trout on a #12 red-assed Kelso wet fly the last time I ever flyfished with my dad. He's the best tier you've never heard of, but at least you have now. Handed me a loaner rod with three old-school droppers just as he would've when I was a kid. Saw this two-footer finning in a pool between two current seams. Took a handful of roll casts but she took it. Just thinking of all this on a New England winter night.
