    There's no future in the "Awl bidness" I think the internal combustion engine is a passing fad - unless you are on I-5 then there is no passing - just sitting. I hope things go your way!

    Good to finally meet you at the shop yesterday! Sorry that I could not chat with you since I had to be in Port Townsend at noon. For only fishing the saltwater here in Puget Sound for 1 year you sure have posted some awesome reports and photos.

    Your addition and new programs at Puget Sound Fly Co. will make it an even better shop.

    Roger

    Best of luck to you and the family. It's great to hear you're "back in the industry." If my travels take me out that way I'll try and stop in. Tight lines!

    Well Dan, based on your posts, I can't say that's particularly good news for the fish :). All the best to your son and the family... and the new venture!

    May your son's health continue to improve & being around him bring you joy. Money ain't NOTHIN' but a means to an end... & family is the end all & be all of life.... oh, & fishing is important, too... & maybe a good slice of pizza

    Well I've liked your writing ever since you came to the site. It was easy to tell you were a great fisherman with the reports you have given. It also has shown how humble a man you must be not having to bash other fisherman or techniques or opinions. You have kept your writing spot on with your on water education. I hope this continues and I think you are a great choice to represent the fly fishing community while working at a shop. I tend to think of the fly fishing community as a whole and how I, or "WE" represent it to the other fishing world and you sir - have done one hell of a job of that already! Keep up the good work!

    A lot of people could learn from your respect and humbleness - not just your fishing. WELCOME!!!

    OK, gotta ask, next time I swing by the shop should I bring beer or soft drinks (Scotch?)? ;-) (and chips, and salsa, and ???)
    Gotta have some sort of toast!

    This seems like the mother of all win-win situations. Anil runs a great shop, and you get more time at home. Glad to hear, man.
