The Underground's Friday Binge of Houscleaning Posts Begin

By Tom Chandler 5/1/2009

What a couple of weeks.

On top of all the usual work craziness, I've been teaching online marketing boot camp (for an economic development nonprofit), and remembering that you can't subtract two full days (and nights) from a full work schedule without cutting into your spare time.

Your spare fly fishing time.

That might suggest I'm a slow learner, but the sad truth is... OK, I'm a slow learner. I cop to it.

Soon after I moved up here from the Silicon Valley, I ran into the same problem; a friend remarked that I'd traded workaholism down there for workaholism up here, and the only real difference was that the view outside the window was better.

Still, that leaves us here - one of us reading this post, and the other trying to write it (coherently, and yes, very slowly). So what time does that make this?

Friday Housecleaning. Get ready for a series of short, overdue posts. You'll love it. Really.

Meanwhile, I'm firing up some actual fly fishing related plans for the weekend. Plans which could involve a shot at some smaller stream trout.

Still, the cooler weather has dropped the Upper Sac's flows to the 1000 cfs neighborhood, which pretty much anyone can fish (even overtired marketing teachers).

Tune in, and you'll get to see the Underground engaged in actual fly fishing related activities, though it's going to happen pretty fast; I start teaching another online marketing boot camp in 1.5 weeks.

See you on the crazy train, Tom Chandler.
