December is just a click away and my life is going to get real busy as the shop goes full on Christmas. I've packed a lot of fly-fishing adventures into this year and still might get a day or two on the water before the New Year. I love fall here in Oregon as I hit the Rogue, Deschutes, Metolius, and even dipped down into NORCAL to sample the Klamath. The most interesting day on the water was spent with a crew from Brighthouse Financial on the Metolius. Evidently as I have gotten older I'm in high demand as a character actor, it must be the gray hair. They followed me around with tons of camera gear while I gave them a tour of Oregon and told my story. Turned out kind of cool, for an old guy. No, I'm not retiring anytime soon to get into acting. The link takes you to the finished piece. Yes, I got paid. Enough to cover gas anyway. I even cooked them lunch on the Skottle!
