My cousin called me the other day, out of the blue, and asked if I would sign his edition of Western Outdoor News(WON). Anyone who is in the fishing or hunting scene on the West Coast knows of this very informative weekly paper. I had no idea that it was running, but WON ran a full-page article on me and Sierra Nets. It was written by a fine writer, Jim Matthews who used to write the fishing page for the Thursday O.C. Register if you recall. He also runs a website called the Outdoor News Service This article makes me proud and I wanted to share with my woodworking friends. I think the fly fishing world has been pretty good to me. I am blessed and humbled to be able to do what I love, creating custom fishing nets, for a living. I just received my first order, stemming from the article, today.

For those that don't know, I was laid off again just before Christmas. I am really hoping it was a blessing in disguise, because working in a large manufacturing environment in this economy has been very stressful. The good news is that since mid November, I have had pretty steady sales, and have about a two month backlog of nets to create. The wifey told me, "10 nets a month…" and I get to work for my self! Right now, I am focusing on getting ready for the show and completing the nets I have in hand.

I will be an exhibitor at the Pleasanton, Ca. Fly Fishing Show up in the Bay area Feb. 24-26, 2012. It's my first ever show and I'm I am nervous but excited-Please send your good thoughts my way. I do hope to be hanging out in the Pasadena Fly Fishing Show booth for the Fly Fishing Club of Orange County. If you happen to be at either place, please stop by and say hello.

Here's a picture of the full page article in WON:
