"...One of the sport's great hosts, about as generous, warm and enthusiastic a teacher as may be found on a stream---the kind of guide who enjoys a client's fish as much as any he catches himself."

Fly fishing in the Tahoe area?  You bet!  The Lake Tahoe area is a world-renowned, diversified recreational playground.   The addition of both public and private trophy trout angling in the area's alpine waters make this the premier outdoor site in the pristine High Sierra.

I'm in the Blogosphere!

This blog replaces my famous Truckee Fly Angling Update . Yeah, I is about time!! It is not restricted to just objective fishing reports; it includes my perspective about flyfishing for trout...sort of my "bully pulpit". Additionally, there is a varied mix of humor, images & opinions about angling conservation and my personal pet peeves. The latter two with which you may agree or not. 
I encourage participation. My only request is...please... keep it civil;  honoring  the hackneyed cliche of  "agreeing to disagree".

 the famous... 
...became too tedious to maintain & refresh; although I did appreciate its e-list of readers & the fun comunications we had. 

Here are some unsolicited comments I received by e-mail:
"...nothing like doing without to realize the worth of your updates (during computer breakdown in late August, 2000)"
"...I find your Update helpful for fly selection,  hatch info, and types of water to concentrate on.  I prefer your report because it appears as a log of how you and your clients fared and what fish were actually caught on."
