The Monday Zombie Report.

By Tom Chandler 7/10/2006

The Upper Sac appears to be fishing very well, and damnit, tonight I'm finding out for myself. During my lastest work binge I've been hearing reports from others about the fishing. Not an altogether pleasant sensation, but one I'm rectifying tonight. The big decision seems to be this: hunting big fish with the Golden Stone, or chasing numbers with the Pink Albert?

It's been an interesting work binge, with the inevitable result that today I'm staring at the screen like a zombie on downers. Ian's even breathing down my neck to finish a joint project, so this will be necessarily short. (Don't complain - you got a bonus leader post from Sully.)

Today's Underground Entertainment is good stuff. First, the always interesting MidCurrent points us towards an incredibly, deeply, wildly interesting interview with Thomas McGuane at New West magazine (an incredibly, deeply, wildly interesting online magazine). McGuane's my favorite fly fishing writer (and fly fishing writers will be the subject of an upcoming Underground Quiz); he's an interesting character and we're really entering must-read territory here. So read it.

Lately I've been adding RSS feeds to my new reader, and one of the best additions has been the Blogfish conservation blog. His latest post concerns the ongoing Klamath River salmon nightmare and the involvement of some major political figures in it.

As the author of the decade leading fly fishing blog Trout Underground, Tom believes that fishing is not about measuring the experience but instead of about having fun. As a staunch environmentalist, he brings to the Yobi Community thought leadership on environmental and access issues facing us today.
