Casting Flies And So Much More

“There are some who can live without wild things and some who cannot.” ~Aldo Leopold

My husband is one who cannot live without wild things.

He writes about it in his new book.

Here is a description. Take a look inside...

Forging a bond with rugged places and wild creatures, casting to brook trout, or reflecting on the forces that compel people to fly fish, Chad Hanson proves himself a formidable guide. In prose that is wise and observant, he brings us stories of travel, adventure, and concern for the state of the environment. Hanson climbs to the tops of peaks, hikes to the bottoms of canyons, and finds himself lost in snow at high elevation terrain that is more than geographic and just as exhilarating. Trout Streams of the Heart offers nature lovers, anglers and non-fishers alike, a provocative foray into our relationship with the natural world.

***************************************************************************************************************************

I've mentioned C in some of my posts. You know a little bit about him, but did you know he is my everything? I could make a list of all the things he is. But, I won't. One word can describe him to the max. Humble. Aside from being sweeter than pie, he is kind and talented and interesting and so much fun. We go way back. The adventures never end, the laughter is frequent and living with a poet with eyes the color of a Wyoming sky is something I am grateful for every. single. day.

Trout Streams of the Heart is available through Amazon or any local bookstore.
