Over the summer, Jennifer and I nostalgically returned to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, site of our introductory visit to the west back in 1989.  We went on long hikes, attended a rodeo and marveled at the beauty of the Tetons.  And, we took a fly-casting lesson. I had been a novice fly fisher in Colorado and set aside the pursuit in deference to time with our children.  What better way to return to one of my favorite activities than to invite my spouse to join me! As I was working to recover... Read More
