    He's living the dream. Well, fishing a lot anyway. I'd tell you all of his personal secrets, but I don't know any.

    I think he's pioneering a destination lodge on the lower Umatilla River targeting Carp. But, like I said I don't know much, I could be wrong.

    I heard he was travelling the South Pacific as a personal guide and paramour for Keira Knightley and Megan Fox.

    Lots of people come and go on WFF. Zen is just one example of many. Just scanning the Zen's mom thread, I don't recall seeing the following guys here in a long time: Sloan Craven, Steelie Mike, ChadK, Keith Hixson. That's just one old thread.

    He's got the best gallery on WFF by far.

    Sloan headed East and is now a professional Striper crusher by day and stripper tipper by night. I heard SteelieMike went full transvestite and is currently down on Hawthorne offering free sounding and figging lessons to unknowing heterosexuals.

    Saw an ad on Missoula Craigslist where he was selling hand tied flies a month or so ago.

    Dam I had heard Mike was "reexamining his life" but I didn't know it had gone that far. Maybe he'll get that "spey fishing in heels" published afterall.

    Someone should write a ballad about the life of young Zen.

    I want to tell you a story about a young man named Zen,
    A poor fisherman who barely kept his family fed,
    And then one day he was casting at some food,
    And up thru the ground came a bubblin' crude,

    MUCH better quality than those inferior, machine-tied flies!

    That last comment should bring him out of hiding, or at least cause his mom to defend him.

    Is colored glue and a hook considered a fly?
