Gone Fishin’…But You Are In Good Hands With Chad Aldeman

I’m taking some time off this year, an extended amount to focus on some non-work things. Basically, with the exception of a few commitments I’m out through October. I’ll be traveling, riding my bike a lot, hopefully bending fly rods, and learning some new things unrelated to my day job. I’m looking forward to a chance […]

This is just a great picture. Happy angler, mountains, big fish… It’s the Commodore’s daughter Anabel fishing a few weeks ago in Idaho. The Roza family are not strangers to fish porn.

Election Fallout, Unschooling, CRPE, Sports, Bonus Monday Fish, Pistol Annies

Last week I recapped the election impact for education. Jason Weeby caught a fish. Bonnie O’Keefe on unified enrollment via a conversation with Shannon Fitzgerald. CRPE is a great outfit I’ve been lucky enough to be involved with over the years in a few capacities. And its founder Paul Hill has been a good mentor […]

Here’s Kevin Kosar’s son following in dad’s footsteps. Dad is a regular around here, older sister has turned up, and it turns out his son has a nose for catfish, too.
