For my birthday, Mojdeh got me a bunch of fly fishing things. Big surprise! I got a couple of books which I have really enjoyed. The first is by John Gierach called “Death, Taxes, and Leaky Waders“. During the book John talks about living in Lyons, Colorado. That is less than half an hour away from Boulder. It is neat to read about places that I am familiar with. I recently found out that we will be featuring John in the next issue of Blood Knot. I am excited as he is promoting his new book. Between him and Paulo Coehlo, I now have two authors that I want all of their books. Unfortunately, as we are moving onto a boat in a couple of weeks, we are in the process of getting rid of everything (again)so getting books is not high on my priority list.
The second book that I am currently reading is “50 Places to Fly Fish Before You Die“. It was kind of a joke as I am getting older, but I am really enjoying it! Of ourse there are some places in Colorado that are featured and many more places to explore in the future!
In other exciting news, Ben Collins won the 5150 New Orleans race today!
