Monday Morning Slow and Clear

| August 20, 2012

I know it is “Sunday Morning Coming Down,” but I had to take a classic and bend your senses a but as you arrive online this fine Monday, wherever you are. You could be in a cubicle, in your home office, in your corner office, in Austin, in Dallas, in Houston, in Brownsville, on your boat or on your dock. Have another shot of coffee from the counter, the break-room or the barista, and loosen up.

The thing is, I am here this fine Monday, the beginning of a fantastic week in the life, to ask a couple of things of you:
1) I am asking you to take a moment and tell me if you fly fished anywhere in Texas this past week or weekend.
2) I also want to ask you what you want to hear about through Texas Fly Caster – you may, or may not know the topics, but they are a) Texas fly fishing, b) Culture on the Skids, c) music, d) beer and dining, and e) anything that you think would interest you and readers of Texas Fly Caster. YES, I KNOW this is a pandora’s box being opened, but it is Monday.

Now, I know you are lurking, waiting, and wanting to brag about your exploits. Here’s your chance. Consider this post a blank, a tabula rasa. It has no value, except to serve as a wakeup call on Monday morning, actually every Monday morning for the foreseeable future.

As far as world is concerned, if your tree (fly fishing excursion) falls in the forest, and no one’s there to hear it, does it make a sound?

The range of Texas Fly Caster tends to expand and contract over a year’s time, and with the late summer doldrums upon us, it’s time to look a little further over the horizon. WE have a regular reader Immanuel Salas who is headed for a long trek along the Texas Gulf coast within a week, and I EXPECT to see some images from him coming this way, and WE’RE still waiting for Joel Hays (so what if he’s the new associate principal at his high school … how hard can that be!) to deliver on his trip to Southwest Colorado a couple of weeks ago. The one word he kept repeating about that trip was “hard.”

I’ve been buried in research on an environmental situation surrounding the San Saba River, and I have to sift through that this week, while at the same time finally getting back to work after nearly two months of no work. If you need photography or writing, feel free to peruse my day-job sites at or for retail photography – I also build wordpress sites for business and pleasure. I don’t like hanging out a shingle here, but sometimes two worlds have to collide to make mine a better world.
