If I could get serious for a minute...

A lot of people have family photographs professionally taken in a studio. But I've dabbled with photography for a long time and think I've captured the essence of my wife and our puppy, Gromit, in this beautiful portrait.

More Living Vicariously

This time through my friend Joel, who caught this beautiful steelhead on the Trinity River in Northern California. It was caught on a double beaded golden stone fly. Thanks for sharing, Joel! Bastard.

New Year Begins with Pang of Jealousy

Our friend Mike was in Cabo San Lucas, purportedly the Marlin capital of the world, where he caught this incredible fish. Believe it or not, multiple photos were taken and this is the pose that makes him look the least shocked. I'm not ashamed to say it: I'm really, really jealous. I've been wanting to go deep sea fishing for a long time, and just haven't been able to put a trip together.

But Mikey's Marlin -- along with a stack full of offshore charter brochures I picked up at a fishing show today -- have caused me to rededicate myself. I will go deep sea fishing THIS YEAR!

Nice fish, Mikey.
