Paddy's sweet new cruiser, The Flying Sue, is the ultimate fishing rig. We've been cruising the streets of Hailey and I think we're ready for some fishing excursions. The best part about his bike (besides the naked lady) are the sweet valve stem covers--they're bullets.

During President Obama's western tour last week, he had a few hours to fly-fish with Dan Vermillion of Sweetwater in Livingston, MT. Here is an interview with Dan after the trip. I'm glad he made the time to get on the water and I hope Dan bent his ear about Northwestern dams and Bristol Bay and all of the other important waters we need to protect.

Yesterday I had a great trip with two boys from LA on the Wood. We caught a ton of fish, including a large one named Morgan. The only fly I haven't debarbed ever found it's way into my ear. I left it in there until I went to Heather's to celebrate her 100-mile bike ride. After a few bottles of Proseco, Paddy went to work on the zebra midge and it was absolutely painless! He has some method of hook removal that uses tippet and it really works. Needless to say, I'm a little gun shy now.
