Here are samples of freelance articles I’ve written. I must admit that there’s a certain sense of accomplishment to have something actually printed in ink. The pay isn’t great, but it’s better than what I get paid to write my blog. These are PDF files which will download automatically when clicked. Thanks for looking.
I’m particularly proud of this particular article, written for and about my friend, Rich Schaaff. Rich asked me to write the article to accompany a series of photographs to be featured in the issue of George Douglas’ Kype Magazine. After the article was written, but before it was published, Rich passed away after a very brief bout with cancer. I felt more honored than ever to have had the chance to get to know Rich better during the course of writing this article. The editors of the magazine paid tribute to Rich by featuring his photography on the cover and throughout the magazine. A nice tribute to a wonderful guy and a talented photographer who was taken from us too soon. Thank you, Rich. This is Volume 3, issue 1 of Kype Magazine, 2010.
I conducted this interview for Fly Rod & Reel online. Fred Blessing is the son of the late Russ Blessing, originator of the Woolly Bugger. It was a privilege to get to know Fred, and through him, Russ. The Woolly Bugger needs no introduction.
This article was written about one of my favorite places to fish, the St. Joe River in Idaho. I’ve been fortunate enough to be a guest of the St. Joe Outfitters on two different occasions, and look forward to the next time I’m able to go back. The article was published in the Spring 2010 issue of Fly Rod & Reel magazine.
