Welcome to my blog. I created this site to collect and document the things I enjoy, my dreams and pursuits. Currently my posts are about Fly Fishing, Brewing Beer and life transforming events since around 2007 or so. I am a succesful entrepeneur and have owned my own business since 1992. 2013 begins my 22’nd year in business and I have survived many ups and downs of this psychotic world. I aspire to break away from the trappings of owning a business and move towards a career more integral with my personal goals. Blending a life of fishing, brewing beer and maybe saving some rivers sounds good. I have been drawn to the mountains since a child and fallen in love with the Lake Almanor area in Northern California. Making a life there is a dream come true and likely involves little money. This seems to be a lot easier said than done but regardless I will try. If I can pull it off then to me this is success.
