I’m deep into the California speaking tour. I spoke to Tracy Fly Fishers last week then at the Pleasanton Fly Fishing Show over the weekend. Both were excellent with high attendance for the show and all my presentations. Here’s a shot of me teaching the Double Haul on the outside casting pond.
On top of the speaking I busted out some mean artwork. I drew on a banjo for David Blackburn of Kootenai Angler two years ago. This weekend I did it again only this time I went with a saltwater look. Here’s finishing up the bonefish on top.
Next was to sketch in the tarpon.
Here’s the completion. It took me all night at the hotel bar!
I was stoked the way it came out as was Dave!
Granny and I have been chilling out in the boonies of California. We are just leaving Kernville and I’m speaking in to Kern River Fly Fishers tonight and Fresno Fly Fishers tomorrow. Then it’s a long drive home but home sweet home it will be. Looking forward to it!
