Jumping the shark

I have many bad habits, for sure, but the one fly-fishing vice I cannot break is casting at mako sharks off the California coast with flies. 

It started nearly 20 years ago when I met Conway Bowman while writing the book Tideline. That led to a larger story for Field& Stream magazine (“Flyfishing Gone Mad”) a couple years later.

Now, the latest proof of my psychological instability is the cover story for Tail magazine, the voice of saltwater fly fishing.
