As we wade into 2013, I’ll devote this blog more to musings, observations, commentary, and stories – mostly true – though this author always reserves the right to some poetic license. So if you arrive here in search of fly fishing reports, gear reviews, factoids, or fishing and conservation news, please check out my Examiner sites.

There I’ll commit to some goals, destined, no doubt to be broken in the coming year with perhaps at least a few ringing true at year’s end. I’ll close this brief post with the words of Rainer Maria Rilke, hoping in 2013, we can all fly fish ever deeply and widely:
