We Will Return In June   3 comments

Little Colorado River (June 2021) — HDR Image by kenne

Last June, some of us got out of Tucson’s heat and spent a few days in the White Mountains of eastern Arizona. 

My good friend, Tom Markey, and his wife Pat were with us. We spent time walking and fishing in the Fort Apache Indian Reservation. 

Late in 2021, Tom was diagnosed with Lymphoma. Last week he received his first chemo session, to which
he had an adverse reaction, but doing better now. The tumor in his arm has already reduced in size.
So we are already talking about going back up to the mountain stream pictured above — We will return!

There’s A Story We Must Tell . . .   Leave a comment

BoliviaTy Instructing Matt How To Flyfish — Image by kenne

There’s a story we must tell . . .
Tom’s fly fishing rods travel with us
Everywhere we went in Bolivia.

The rods are not cheap, so we
made sure one of us always had
them with the carry-on luggage.

As fate would have it,
our river location was not
the best place for fly fishing.

Even so, why travel all this way
and not at least do some casting
over the Tuichi river waters?

Tom readied the rods and reels
for Matt to get some practice
with Ty being his instructor.

As the sun went down where
the Tuichi and Beni rivers merge
they cast over the joining waters.

The moral of the story is:
Never travel with fly fishing rods
without creating a memorial moment.
