"Tying flies is like cooking. Most of the times, ingredients make for an incredible dish. However, most of the time, less ingredients makes for a better healthier meal. What matters most is creating and preparing with love…"

— Mike SL 2014

To the most incredible extended family this life gave me, THANK YOU for reminding us where we came from and where life will eventually lead us. Family is everything… I love you all and will miss you dearly.

Beautiful day on the waters. Caught this bow off a size 12 bulldog and was released unharmed immediately after this pic. (at Rice Lake)

Gorgeous day floating around Grace. 1/3 and losing out on a couple of decent fish. 
Trout season finally! (at Weaver Lake)

Unfortunately, I dropped my 2010 and 2011 pin around the river banks and should really put an effort in keeping these pins in a safe place. Love getting my pins!
