Everyone who knows me knows I run. One of my favorite places to run is high in the mountains where trickling snowmelt gathers into high alpine lakes and twinds into mountains streams. It's in these spots where I often pause to marvel at the fish that inhabit (sometimes densely) the seemingly inhospitable terrain. If there are fish that are of our tribe, it's these badass fish. Shortly, I'll be taking part in the Middle Creek Flyathlon* to help raise money to preserve, protect, and maintain healthy cold-water freshwater ecosystems. It's my sincere hope that you'll help me in this cause!
* The Flyathlon's tagline is "Run. Fish. Beer." I've got the run part down. Same goes for the beer. Now, the flyfishing part will be a challenge. I'm more likely to catch a cold or a toe than a fish, but it's all for a good cause! (And, of course, it's all catch and release!)
