  • 10 Christmas Flies December 8, 2018
    Beautiful Christmas Fly Patterns With Christmas fast approaching, we thought it only appropriate to put together our top 10 Christmas dry fly patterns. Now most of these have no practical application for fishing, but they are very creative and full of the holiday spirit. In fact, some were likely conceived while drinking some of the […]
  • Thunder Beetle dry fly pattern November 2, 2018
    Yes, I give fly fisherman a lot of crap for being prissy, but I can’t say that it doesn’t work. If I didn’t I wouldn’t be posting a link to the Thunder Beetle dry fly pattern here.  My take of fly fishing (yes, I’ve done some) is that most of the patterns exist only to […]

The Adventure Van is slowly crawling towards being fully functional and it seemed like a good idea to take it somewhere not too crazy.  Being just shy of 3 hours away, including a ferry ride, it made for a reasonable choice. The dogs […]
  • Doing the tourist thing in Ocean Shores, WA October 8, 2018
    I’ve met a few “one street towns” in my life, but very few “two street” ones, but that is what you get in Ocean Shores Washington. Needing a place to get away for our anniversary that was not close to home, but not an airplane ride away, I presented Jacquie with a list of possible […]
  • Humangear GoBites Duo spoon and fork combo September 13, 2018
    Straight out of one of the recent boxes from Cairn, comes the Humangear GoBites Duo review. I have a ton of different utensils for eating on the trail but I was headed out in the adventure van and knew that I didn’t have any clean utensils to eat with in it.  So I grabbed the […]
