So much fishing, so little internet!


Glenn is off to the Bahamas for his annual, saltwater research trip. And as Ariell and I await the first, promising Spring days, shivering after we fall in rivers, at least we can think of Glenn casting away in sweltering sunshine. He is packing a couple four-piece bamboo rods that I am excitedly waiting to hear his report on. I took one prototype hex rod to Argentina, and it worked beautifully. It slipped right through security and in to overhead bins, allowing me to cast, fish for, and fight fish in to my grasp. We are sure we have figured how to make a great-casting rod that is able to be taken anywhere. My version is a hex configuration, while Glenn continues research with his eight-sided rods -- this time with four pieces. I will update as Glenn's reports trickle in.

In other news, I am still working on the raw footage I shot with my friend Farhad, while filming a movie in Argentina. The movie follows the journey of Rainbow trout from the McKenzie river in Oregon, to the many watersheds throughout Patagonia, Argentina. It will be a lengthy project, but I will share glimpses along the way, here at Sweetgrass. 

Lastly, recent winds have destroyed my internet connection. So, before this coffee shop closes, I will end by saying I am about to go fishing, I can't figure out how to post any frickin' photo or video, and so will work on it later. After I catch a fish! 

In Wild Waters,
