Praise Unsolicited

Sometimes, little surprises come from unsuspecting sources. Such a surprise arrived today, via Mike Sepalak of Mike's Gone Fishing ... Again. Mike somehow got his hands on a copy of my book, "Shin Deep: A Fly Fisher's Love for Living Water," and he took the time to crack the cover.

To say I am extremely flattered by the review is an understatement. To say that I am truly looking forward to fishing and hanging out with Mike in a couple weeks when he and three other fishing bloggers meet us in Montana's Centennial Valley for a tour of TU's work in the area is dead-on accurate.

Mike, thanks for the great little review. Hearing your perspective on my writing–especially since I've become a big fan of yours in recent months–is very valuable and very much appreciated.

It's official. I now can't wait to meet you and the other bloggers when we gather in Montana in a couple weeks.


  1. Chris, you'll get over it as soon as you meet him. Just joking...Mike is a 100% class guy and terrific writer in his own right. I'm scouring the countryside looking for Shin Deep as we speak.

  2. Just came from reading that post myself. Great writing on both parts. Have fun with the fellow bloggers in Montana and can't wait to see some of the posts. Tight Lines to all.
