Tricky Tricky

Oh the fun you can have on the Internet.

I’ve spruced up the ‘About Rebecca’ page with a visual explanation of that Outdooress chick. Since my blog entry count has been sparse lately, I thought I’d share it out here as well, front and center. (I’ll take any bonus points I can get)

If you get a chance, head over to Animoto and do a little photo mixing yourself.
I promise…it’s less painful than a Zebra Midge through the lip ~


The Color of 6 A.M.

As Always, not retouched in anyway....

I’m back from a couple of weeks chasing Elk around the Mountain Tops of Central Oregon. Every single day I was up on the Mountain early enough to watch the sunrise and every single day I was still up on the Mountain to watch the sunset.

I had a wonderful time and will  muse about my experience here this week.

While I was gone this humble little website experienced a considerable spam attack which frankly irks me to no end. Since the under slim of the Internet world is still testing the new anti-spam protection I’ve installed, I’ve also instituted something I had hoped to avoid.

From now on, anyone who comments will have to have one “approved comment” before their comments shows up in real time. I apologize to the real people who take the time to comment and brighten my day…for the one time delay. As for the spammers, well, take that ya annoying assholes…(sorry Dad, but that cuss word was truly unavoidable and appropriate)

I hope everyone has been well and getting outside as often as possible.


It’s a Bug Thing

It's gettin' Buggy in Here

After I finished a much needed grease breakfast in the  ‘don’t blink’ town of Spray Oregon over the weekend, I noticed this bug on the inside of the Fishcruisers windshield. I couldn’t help but wonder what he was thinking from his drivers side view of all the dead splatters of perished cousins. Lucky perhaps?

Normally I would be excited to see such a great dry fly possibility so close to a river, but I happened to be stationed next to the John Day River which, depending how you look at it–good or bummer– is overrun with small mouth bass. Bass again! (Someone needs to stage an intervention and get me back on the Trout Track)

So the John Day River was where my wanderings took me over the weekend. In other words, bring on all things new in my fly box these days.  Squirrel tails, plastic whatnots, foamies and my Bass Pro Jersey.


Cloud Bashful

~ Untouched Cloud Bashful ~

I’m starting to have a thing for the combination of sunsets and clouds. As I spent the last couple of weeks up in the Mountains, each evening I would get excited to see if the day would end in a hushed blue to black tone or go out with a bold stroke of Mother Natures artistic expression.

No matter where I was, or what I was doing, I would have my hundred dollar camera poised at dusk  just in case Nature sent all the right signals. Some nights colors would burst over the horizon and some nights Nature must have had a headache and just wanted to go to sleep. Either way, I was waiting, watching and ready for whatever she would grant me…
