The city that never sleeps, but New York does fly-fish

Mom's ashes

When I think of a vacation, I naturally think of going right back to the same place I have always gone for vacations, Hermit Valley at the top of Ebbetts Pass.

It's pretty poor ammunition for chatter at cocktail parties, too. When others are talking about the magnificent view of the Alps, I really don't make much of an impression when I casually mention that the view ...

My Cherry Creek odyssey

Ordinarily, I don't write precise directions to a good fishing spot. Under most circumstances, revealing a great fishing hole in print will inundate it with so many anglers that the fishing will be ruined. That won't happen in this case, however, because my secret fishing hole is so difficult to get to almost no one is crazy enough to go back.

Warranties on outdoor gear

Sometimes no matter how hard you try, things go wrong afield and one of your favorite pieces of gear malfunctions. I recall once as we were trekking across the old Immigrant Road that runs from Highway 4 in Hermit Valley to Deer Valley off of Highway 88.

In search of salmon and authenticity

Since the friends that visit during the summer are not paying clients, I can afford certain liberties as I shuttle them around the island under the guise of providing an "authentic" experience.

Tactics for high water

Due to the extremely wet winter we had, most of the streams are running cold fast and extremely full. The recent hot spell has begun to melt the huge snowpack with a vengeance and the rivers are boiling. This was one of the wettest years on record and the melting snow is creating extremely dangerous conditions. Usually at this time of year the snow run off has peaked and stream levels have begun to recede to normal summertime levels. This year however nature may not be cooperating with your summer vacation plans. Major Sierra rivers are roaring with flows not ...
