"To him, all good things - trout as well as eternal salvation- come by grace, and grace comes by art, and art does not come easy."

Intro -- Disclaimer -- Pilot Post

   The relocation is something I have thought about all my life. Living in Colorado, becoming a fly fishing guide amongst mountains and real country. I am just a simple kid, who loves Jesus and likes to fish, and Ive decided to move from Texas to do something I love, maybe hoping to make some money while doing it.
   Money was never a big plan for my future though, and going to a small university in Texas does have it's social norms. I just decided that I want to be happy, and sitting in an office from 9 to 5 everyday making money for a company that I don't even care about would be miserable. I believe life is only truly lived when you're doing something you love, as long as its moderately decent for your own well being, and for me fishing is just that.
   This blog is about my relocation to Colorado from Texas as it progresses. As for this post, I am still in Texas, taking my last class before moving up to Colorado, living with one of my old friends, and basically hitting the "reset button".
   To be clear, I'm not "running away" from anything, I will miss all of my friends here in Texas, but let us be real, its not too far away, and sometimes you have to make sacrifices.
 I will not keep anything regarding the process from this blog, its a complete documentation of the expedition and the experience.

   Oh and I have decided to remain anonymous and create the alias "Adam Coachman" (Adam's fly and Royal Coachman fly) for the risk of saying something that I will regret, not that I am paranoid or have some diabolical plan, just because I feel its better that way..


  1. Just started following and look forward to future posts. Great looking fish by the way. Tight Lines and good luck on your venture.

  2. Brother, I did the same thing. For the same reasons. It is a long road...good luck.

  3. I too, am excited to read your journey. "Find your bliss," I was told recently. And it sounds like you have. No matter what, keep on, keepin' on....and best of luck!
