As a continuation of my previous post about Learning to Fish with a Fly, I’m now learning to fly tie. They say, if you learn to tie flies yourself it will increase the amount of fish you catch… and although I agree I have learned a ton… I think moving to Montana might be a better way to catch more fish… so for now I’ll just keep tying flys hoping it helps. During the winter fishing is tough… there are still fish to catch but I was seeking a creative outlet so I figured hey-ho why not pick up tying flies… thousands of dollars later… here I am with some flies that I think look pretty good but the fish probably don’t care.
My Journey 5 Years in with Codeable
5 years ago on a Monday, I woke up in my studio apartment in Mission Beach, San Diego and while still laying in bed I checked my email on my phone only to find something I was not expecting…
It was an email that immediately got my attention as an adventurous person, I was ready for this journey to come. The email had come in on a Saturday so when I saw it on Monday I shot up out of bed and scurried over to my laptop researching everything I could about Codeable. I guess about a month earlier, I had applied to be one of their WordPress experts, not really thinking much of it or knowing where it would lead me.
Agate Hunting – Activities for the Injured
Even though I grew up on the Puget Sound in Washington State, I never knew these beaches were covered with semi-precious stones until a couple of years ago when this secret was shared by some friends.
Agates can be found lots of places, but they are scattered all over Puget Sound beaches, where they live in the beachy substrate and are turned over by wind, waves, tides and current… and are constantly replenished by eroding cliffsides falling into the waters of the sound.
At the start of this year, and after I fractured my other arm/shoulder, I found myself in a bit of a funk and needed to get out of it. I used to read business books all the time when I ran my agency for 3 years, but somehow recently fell out of the habit over the last 5 years or so… That changed when a book recommendation came from someone I respect, Atomic Habits by James Clear, was the book… and it was my first time reading anything by this author.
Well after about 9 months of rehabbing my right shoulder after shattering it at the end of last ski season, I’ve gone ahead and fractured my left shoulder in almost the exact same way. But the injury came after the best powder morning of the season and resulted in a season-ending fall.
Early Season Splitboarding
New record! I’m not sure I’ve ever ridden as early as I did this year on October 20th, 2019. Previously, it’s always been more near the first couple weeks of November up on Mt. Rainier, but this year I scored a couple nice splitboarding lines up in the Mt. Baker backcountry extra early season.
