In Search of the Perfect Loop

I mention a lot of friends and fellow casters/instructors in Single-Handed Fly Casting. One of those friends is Christopher Rownes. I’ve known Christopher for years, and always enjoy watching his casting videos (they aren’t as much about instruction as about enjoying casting for its flow and beauty). If you are an instructor or caster who loves the flow, check out a little of Chris’s work here:

First Fish

Might as well kick off the artistic part of this reloaded blog with a new-ish favorite of mine. This is my daughter, Brooke’s, first trout drawing, from February of this year (2015). She said she was going to draw a trout, sat down, and there you go. It’s pretty straightforward, but I’m not about to offer her any critique!

Brooke turned two last October (2014), and I’m so excited to see her loving her art so much. Pens, markers, crayons, watercolors, glitter glue, or Buddha Board, she enjoys it all.

To honor my little girl and her love of fish, this is also the first drawing I’m using in Single-Handed Fly Casting. Call me a proud papa, or whatever, but then again, that’s exactly what I am.
