FFR 09

Had a fun time at Fly Fishing retailer this year.  Turns out it's going to be the last year in Denver and they are thinking of combining it with Outdoor retailer in SLC.  Could be cool.  

Brent "Fish Pimp" Dawson pimping his fish at the show.  People are really diggin his custom flies.  Check em out at
Mongolia 08 reunion.  Peter and Genevieve and their partner Ken Iwomasa come down to see the new Mongolia video I had in the Drake Film Awards.  Only Currier and Paul were missing.  This exact time last year we were all floating down one of the most remote rivers in the world catching taimen.  It was great to relive those memories and have a get together.  I owe it all to these guys.  
My "River Time Forgot" five minute piece took best story at the Drake event.  It wouldn't have been possible without meeting Peter on that fateful day in a Boulder hotel parking lot.  Next thing i know i'm flying to Ulaan Bataar and i turned out to be one of the best experiences of my life.  
Friday night i did a showing of a longer version of the Mongolia 08 video for Patagonia at their reception.  Shown is Bill Klyn, Peter Mullet, Ken Iwomasa and Brent and i drinking beer.  
Had more beers and fish tacos with Bryan Gregson and Bryan Carter after the show.  Lots of laughs and good fish stories.
